Upcoming talk: Intro to Distributed Source Control

Published by at 9:01 am under Technology   

Where: SLUUG (though my talk is not listed on the site yet)

When: October 10th, meeting starts at 6:30 PM

I’ll introduce distributed source control tools:

  • A short tour of the basic use of git, bzr, and hg (Mercurial)
  • Thoughts on why you’d want to use a distributed source control tool at all, vs. a centralized system like SVN or CVS.
  • Some differences between these tools (and a few others), with thoughts on how to choose

In response to a question below about slides… most likely there will be no slides. Rather there will be a handout (which will be posted on my site).

Update: The handout notes are here. Sorry, no audio/video/transcript this time.

If you found this post useful, please link to it from your web site, mention it online, or mention it to a colleague.

    Kyle’s presentation will begin at about 7:30. At 6:30, we’ve got a more introductory topic: SmartMon Tools (Monitoring Hard Drive Health) by Carl Fitch. Between the 2, we’ll have announcements, some Q&A, and some time to get up and socialize.

    I can’t wait to hear Kyle’s talk. I think I’m ready for distributed source control, but I’m not sure which one to go with.

    This is a good topic. You might consider submitting it for CodeRage, since you already have the presentation put together.


  3. Hi! Is there a chance that you are going to share the slides with people who cannot attend (such as me)?
