Performing version control - 12:30 > 15: 00

With papers, pens and real people in the project room. (not like your imaginary internet friends).

Individual approach

  • ad-hoc manual file base collaboration
  • manual version control

centralized version control

  • playing the server and the clients client
  • commiting, revisions and tags
  • file locking, blaming
  • branching and forking

decentralized version control

  • everyone is a server! (and a client...)
  • local commitment is good for the community
  • merging and conflict solving

Hands on git - 15:30 > 18:00

  • Creating a local repository
  • ssh keys for everyone!
  • Using gitorious/github/bla
  • Puting in practice what we learn in the performance
  • Revisionism harms history
  • Life beyond decentralized version control
  • The dark side of the fork
