Answer

Thanks to the version control system (VCS), you can:

  • collaborate in a team where each member of the team can easily change the source code and share the changes within the team
  • see all source code changes that happened over the time
  • see who changed what and when
  • compare two versions against each other
  • get back in time to any version you want
  • work on multiple versions of the source code at a time and merge them together later
  • run automated actions whenever someone does any change to the code base
