Git Going with Distributed Source Control

· Agile Zone

Consider testing earlier in your SDLC. Read the white paper Surviving Shift Left as a Tester, brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.

Introduction to Git from Øredev Conference on Vimeo.

Many development shops have made the leap from RCS, Perforce, ClearCase, PVCS, CVS, BitKeeper or SourceSafe to the modern Subversion (SVN) version control system. But why not take the next massive stride in productivity and get on board with Git, a distributed version control system (DVCS). Jump ahead of the masses staying on Subversion, and increase your team’s productivity, debugging effectiveness, flexibility in cutting releases, and repository redundancy at $0 cost. Understand how distributed version control systems are game-changers and pick up the lingo that will become standard in the next few years.

In this talk, we discuss the team changes that liberate you from the central server, but still conform to the corporate expectation that there’s a central master repository. You’ll get a cheat sheet for Git, and a trail-map from someone who’s actually experienced the Subversion to Git transition.

The Agile Zone is brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies. Provide teams access to the data they need, in the right state. Read the ETL Testing Guide.
