Git, Github and affiliated tools - Darrell
- GitHub and the Git version control system, two tools at the heart of open source collaboration. Even if you're not a software developer this will be a great primer on what makes open source projects tick. Git veterans, bring your knowledge and stories of the wild west days of Subversion, CVS and dare I say it, Microsoft VSS.
- Version control ancient CVS, RCS
- Some newer ones too (some distributed). git came out of license change of bitkeeper.
- git, github, mercurial have really become popular lately.
