Git for Subversion Users


Comments are closed.

A good abstract talk about using git with it's most useful features. Too bad Stefan did't use any graphics to emphasize what he explained. An image says more than a thousand words.

Also, try to slow down a bit. It looks as though you're nervous. You know you can do it, so relax and imagine the audience na… err, sleeping :-)

All in all, clean, to the point and the talk for anyone starting with git.

Nice introduction, maybe the presentation can be enlightened by examples. But that probably makes the session much longer. I currently only have subversion experience but certainly give git a try.
I also had the idea you were a little nervous. Overall good job.

More graphics will indeed help to better understand git, but it is anyway a presentation that makes you look up for more information about git - which I think is a good thing.

What I would like to see in the talk like this are THE advantages of git over subversion. Sure, it's distributed, but that result in more overhead by pushing and pulling from and to other repositories. But what else?

Why as a hardcore subversion fanboi would I want to convert everything to Git? That question isn't really answered. Maybe talk a bit more about the differences instead of the similarities. Things like git stash, cherry picking, bisect etc. You don't need to go into details about how it works, but what you can do with it and why these functions are so nice (maybe with small examples).

I'm sure git has enough advantages that would make svn-users want to convert, but I haven't really heard them :)

(also, try to avoid the word "basically". A lot of dutch speakers (myself included) use it too much..)
