This year, WP Engine has been encouraging more folks in the WordPress Community to use Version Control on their sites. Version control is part of development best practices for any platform. Of course, you can use any version control method you like, but we’re partial to Git, which is why we integrated git with our hosting platform. Our feature, Git Push, allows you to use version control best practices when you develop and deploy WordPress sites on WP Engine.

One of our developers, Mike Van Winkle, gave an awesome presentation at WordSesh that gives a primer on how to get started with Git Push for version control. If you’ve been looking for an excuse to learn version control, check out Mike’s presentation to get started.
