We've managed to secure the services of Steve Streeting of Atlassian. Steve is going to join us to present:
The road to DVCS, potholes and all
All the cool kids are talking about distributed version control these days - tools like Git and Mercurial, and services such as Bitbucket and GitHub. But what are the benefits and pitfalls of moving serious projects and teams from centralised version control systems to distributed systems? Steve will talk about this subject from several perspectives based on prior experience - that of an independent developer, a former enterprise software team lead, and an open source project lead. This isn't a practical training course on a specific DVCS system, although elements will be mentioned where relevant. Prior DVCS experience is not required.
The Community Night is completely free to attend. So come down, have a beer, meet other Java developers, talk to the speakers from the main JAX conference and enjoy the sessions on offer.
See you there!
