My JavZone git+svn talk is online

This post is part of a series on Git and Subversion. To see all the related posts, screencasts and other resources, please click here


Update: I've also shared my notes from the talk. Here they are.

So, the Cisco/JavaZone folks were lightning fast and uploaded the recording of my session at JavaZone the day after I held it. Here it is:


You'll have to watch it fullscreen and in HD to follow the command line action, I reckon.

I think this marks the climax, and probably the end of my adventures with git+svn. I mean, we're still using it at work, and I'll still help people with it when they ask on the "Git for human beings" mailing list. However, I won't submit it to any more conferences or user group meetings.

It's been a really interesting topic, and an important one. The resources-page has gotten 6000 views (plus a lot more on the blog posts), and the screencasts on YouTube have received nearly 4000 views. It's been adopted by at least one open source project, two companies where I set it up, and I've seen some incoming links from some big companies' intranets. I still hope more people will find them and make use of the knowledge.

One problem is that if you google "git svn", my resource page is nowhere near the first page. The top results are littered with typically 3-4 year old posts with really trivial git-svn stuff. So if you want to help others find this stuff, you can help out by linking to it like this:

Check out this git svn page!
So, google-bomb away :)
