What is Git? What is difference between Git and GitHub or Bitbucket?

Git is a open source version control system, also known as SCM(source code management system) tool. It was founded by Linux Torvalds (founder of Linux OS).

Git is different from traditional version control systems such as SVN, CVS, etc. Git is distributed in nature which allows developers to have full history of their code repositories locally.

Git also has other features - branching, merging, pull requests, re-writing commit history.

Git is the most widely used version control system in the world today and is considered the modern standard for software development.

 BitBucket and GitHub are git based repositories hosted on internet or it could be hosted on-prem as well.

You need to have git client installed on your machine in order to access GitHub or BitBucket Repo.
