"SCM" stands for "Source Code Management." It refers to the practices and tools used to manage and control changes to source code during software development. SCM encompasses a set of processes and methodologies that help developers track, version, collaborate on, and maintain their codebase.
SCM includes features like version control, branching, merging, change tracking, and collaboration. It ensures that multiple developers can work on the same codebase simultaneously, manage different versions of the code, and coordinate their contributions effectively.
Popular SCM tools include Git, Subversion (SVN), Mercurial, and Perforce. These tools provide the infrastructure for versioning code, managing branches, and facilitating collaboration among development teams.
