Any recommendation for a source control tool for a small development team? Thanks Mohammad

Spend a day learning the basics of git from the command line. I know it
might seem like a day \'wasted,\' but you _will_ shoot yourself in the foot
(and hand and arm and leg) with git if you don\'t have a good idea what
you\'re doing. It\'s extremely powerful, but has unintuitive syntax (not
surprisingly).

I\'ve had great success with small teams using git and bitbucket - also provides for issue tracking etc.

Depends a lot on your product stack.

. If you are using MS stack (.NET, SQL, etc.), setup a TFS server
(or use the options below - VS integration is not too good though with git).

. If you are using anything else, go for git. Best places to host
are:

Use a private repo on GitHub. This will give you access to a wiki, issue
management, etc.

If you\'re not willing to pay and your team is less than 5, set up a (free)
private repo on BitBucket.

If you are considering Microsoft TFS, you should check out TFS Service.
It\'s basically TFS in the cloud so you don\'t have to set up your own
server.

I use TFS for my day job and agree that the IDE integration is quite a bit
better. I have to say, I\'ve gotten used to the Git tools for Visual Studio
even though they\'re a bit clunky. The Git clients for Mac are excellent.
Someone needs to come out with a decent Windows Git client!

I only had SVN background (and not much at that) and got up to speed on git quickly using:

my favorite: paid videos for $15: http://tekpub.com/productions/git

reference when you forget: http://gitref.org/

We were on BitBucket and moved to paid github for 2 .NET dev\'s. Both are great but github seems to be where all the action is at, plus their Mac and Windows native clients are nice for the basic tasks of a small team, and their web gui can\'t be beat. We\'re in Visual Studio 2012 all day but still rock the git and github.com. We don\'t get all the CI and fanciness of TFS but I feel it\'s sufficient for now and keeps us nimble without all the complexity (though I haven\'t tried the hosted TFS). Nice thing about github is if you start using other OSS libraries, they are almost all hosted there, and if you decided to give back to the community then you just move some code to a public repository under your "corp" github account and show off a little of your good will.

Git is what most people use these days. I have used it with small teams and
have had good experiences with it. You can host your code repositories
online using GitHub or BitBucket. They also have good integration with
project tracking sites.

If you\'re looking for a GIT GUI to use, i\'d highly recommend using Atlassian\'s Sourcetree (MAC).

However, for more complex functionality, nothing beats git commands in the terminal
