creditsIntro to Mercurial: Merge Without Fear
|Type:||Seminar or Conference|
Distributed version control has been called "possibly the biggest advance in software development technology in ten years." If you haven't yet jumped onto the DVCS bandwagon, this is your chance to get a crash course in the fundamentals of one of the most popular DVCS tools. In this talk I will introduce the basic concepts of distributed version control and the core commands of Mercurial. I'll cover setting up a repository, pushing & pulling changes, branching, and the most feared topic in version control: merging. You'll see that with DVCS branching and merging are nothing to be afraid of and are generally relatively painless.
