? ? ? ? ? ? ?Distributed Version Control Systems and Git

Source Code Management or Version Control is an important aspect of
software development. ?For over a decade, CVS, a centralized SCM, was the
dominant player in software to manage a project's code history and handle
concurrent development by multiple programmers.

In the past few years, new version control systems based on the idea of
distributed systems. ?This presentation will explain basic concepts in
source code management, review the history and overall themes of
centralized systems such as CVS and Subversion, and also introduce
distributed SCMs and their benefits over the older systems. ?Git is used
as a concrete example of a distributed SCM and a brief introduction to Git
features not present in most SCMs will also be featured.
