The first time I was introduced to version control (especially git), I only think of version control as an application that helps me to store the history of my code. So when bad things happened, I can see the history and revert back to the last state of “good code” in my repository.
Not until I use it more frequent, I learn that it’s more than a version control, it also a collaboration tool where you write a history of your repo journey and share it with other developers. That’s when I learn the benefit of having a good commit message can make you collaborate better with others.
In this post, I’ll share how to write a good commit message can help you be a better developer and how conventional commit, a recent convention that I learn and use can make it even easier to write a better commit message.
