The talk will open with a Brief History of Source Control, tracing developments in version control systems (VCS) from RCS and CVS up through modern decentralized systems such as git. I’ll then walk through specific comparisons of the features and workflows supported by Subversion and Perforce and illustrate how similar workflows are realized in git. I’ll finish with an overview of support tools for git, both developer-facing and workflow support/server tools.
