Abstract of the Talk: Introduction to Mercurial

It's been a long time that people keep talking about git but forget a equally-good (if not better) distributed version control system: Mercurial (hg).  Mercurial is of the same age and maturity as git, has straight-forward and convenient UI (command-line and graphical), and supports clean and flexible work flows (note, you have to forget the pollution from git :).

About the Speaker: Yung-Yu Chen

Yung-Yu is a software developer for technical/scientific software.  His interest is about solving conservation laws, but now working on projects related to equations that do not need the conservative form for living.

    It was great seeing everyone again! I've used git and svn before, but never Mercurial. It was so easy to get up and running with the excellent presentation! Will there be a part two? If it wasn't mentioned before, "blame" is also a very good option that I've used many times.

      Part II sounds like a good idea. OK I will include blame in that, thanks for the great suggestion! If there anything else you want to know, here is a good place to make request :)
