Recently, the concept of “Growth Hack” or “Lean Startup” has become increasingly popular. This concept is driven by the importance of revising and modifying your products and services frequently and flexibly, and delivering them rapidly to users. As it is sometimes difficult to predict market trends accurately, this approach will help you to identify the key characteristics of popular product features, as well as secure stronger markets and potential fee-paying users.

Of course, developing and implementing changes constantly is not a simple task, especially on the technical side of operations. To ensure minimal technical hiccups, it is crucial to involve the use of a version control system to help you control and manage all changes. A version control system allows you the add experimental features to your code in a safe and salvageable manner by letting you restore your service back to the previous stable version quickly if bugs or errors are found.

Backlog combines version control options in issue tracking and user management functions. You can start using the most popular version control systems, Subversion or Git, by just a simple click. No server administration tasks are required.
