The Git Parable
I thought the quest for the ideal Source Conrol System (aja Version Control System) had ended when I moved away from that piece of garbage, known as Visual SourceSafe, and into CVS a few years ago.
Alas, not long after, I realised that things could be better. Enter Subversion!
Time passed. All was well. I even managed to introduce it to the dev team at work; all went well (ignoring some painful merging experiences at the beginning!)
Still, I kept an eye out for anything else that may be better.
The most intriguingly named Git is one that has caught my eye.
There are plenty of articles on the net about git but the one I found most refreshingly useful was the one at Tom Preston-Werner's blog.
It explains how git works in the most useful way I've seen in a very long time.
