4.10 Git on the Server - Summary


You have several options to get a remote Git repository up and running so that you can collaborate with others or share your work.

If you place your data on a hosted server, it’s easy to set up and maintain; however, you have to be able to keep your code on someone else’s servers, and some organizations don’t allow that.

It should be fairly straightforward to determine which solution or combination of solutions is appropriate for you and your organization.
