MEETING TOPIC: This month we'll be hearing about Version Control with
Git from
member Anas Mughal. Here's what Anas has to say...
> With over 18 years of software development experience, I have used many
version control systems: Subversion, CVS, PVCS, VSS, SCCS, SVN and GIT.
tool improved over the limitations of an earlier tool. In contract to
earlier tools, GIT is a distributed version control system that requires
central server.
> Its distributed nature is very appealing to track changes and modifications
to any set of files on any operating system.
> In this session, high level concepts of Git will be presented. Then, I will
show why Git is well suited to track system and configuration files.
demonstrations will be conducted to show simple steps to track changes
configuration files using Git.
