Better source control for your coding projects

Posted by: TravisSnoozy on March 11, 2008 03:42 AM
For the first few posts by the Git-lovers of the crowd: I will consent that the title of the article is poor versus the information that I wanted to get across. The idea here is not to embellish specific source control systems, it's to try and point out things that you have to do regardless of the source control system that you wind up using. It doesn't matter if you use Git or (heaven forbid) Visual Source Safe — these tasks should map to all systems, either easily (in the case of good systems), or with great difficulty (in the case of bad systems). Knowing what you need to do is the larger part of the learning curve; learning how to do it with your source control system of choice is just a matter of syntax and/or contortionism. ;)
