Git For Subversion Users
With the move of many big PHP open source projects to Git (and Github), PHP users worldwide are now exposed to a new version control system that is very different from good old Subversion.
In this talk, the concepts of Git are explained to those not yet converted to Git. The benefits of Git over Subversion will be discussed as well as how to use Git successfully for open source projects but also for your own projects.
