(From my learning and teaching experience, I always think that it is important to get to know the big picture “map” before we really delve into a new world, which will make learn web design and development easier. Here I have collected some essential concepts and terms that you will sooner or later meet while you enter into the web design /development world. Happy Learning!)
In software and web development, A sandbox is an environment where new products can be tested without affecting the live server or damaging data.
A component of software configuration management, version control, also known as revision control or source control, is the management of changes to documents, computer programs, large web sites, and other collections of information. Changes are usually identified by a number or letter code, termed the “revision number”, “revision level”, or simply “revision”. For example, an initial set of files is “revision 1”. When the first change is made, the resulting set is “revision 2”, and so on. Each revision is associated with a timestamp and the person making the change. Revisions can be compared, restored, and with some types of files, merged.
