Hasan Veldstra on GIT

06 January 2008


Hasan Veldstra from Hypernumbers introduced git to those who haven’t used it before, some pretty big claims made for an informative question/answer session after the talk. GIT is a source control manager created by Linus Torvalds to manage the Linux kernel. It is a distributed SCM, which allows it to avoid imposing a work flow using a central repository as svn does. A central “canonical” repository is supported, but it also gives you the ability to share changes between your peers and structure your source control to match they way your team/project is organised.
