Software Carpentry - Version Control with Subversion [ID:095]

a series of video-tutorials by Chris Lasher

This Software Carpentry series covers the topic of Version Control (a.k.a. Revision Control) and demonstrates the essentials of the client and the typical work cycle for Subversion, a popular open-source Revision Control System.

Video Tutorials

1. Version Control with Subversion 1

We begin with an introduction to the topic of Version Control: what is version control why use Subversion where to find free Subversion hosting

2. Version Control with Subversion 2

Get started with the command line-based Subversion client: checking out a local copy of a repository adding files to a repository checking for local modifications committing changes to a repository synchronizing the local copy with the repository

3. Version Control with Subversion 3

Learn the remainder of basic repository commands: reverting local modifications deleting, moving/renaming, and copying files making and removing directories getting help on Subversion commands

4. Version Control with Subversion 4

Identify changes by examining commit logs and diffs across revisions.

5. Version Control with Subversion 5

Undo changes already committed to the repository.

6. Version Control with Subversion 6

Learn the fundamentals of working in a multi-user repository: merging your changes with others' changes rolling back others' changes

7. Version Control with Subversion 7

Continuing in the vein of a multi-user repository, we develop the critical skill of conflict resolution.

8. Version Control with Subversion 8

We conclude by assessing the topics and commands we've covered, mentioning more advanced Subversion topics, and giving acknowledgments.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Chris
