Git: A Case Study In Distributed Version Control
Wednesday, April 1
6:45 pm, Suspenders Restaurant
Brian Cully will speak on Git: A Case Study In Distributed Version
Control. This talk will go over what distributed version control systems
(dVCS) mean, and how git applies itself to its problems.
bjc has been involved in open source since the mid 90s, contributing to
the BSDs and Linux at various points. He once worked at Panix, and now
works at Junction Networks. Wherever he goes he seems to end up working
on the version control system, and is now using git exclusively.

event you plan to have dinner)
