You have probably heard about git and you understand that source control is a good thing. Who made this change? When? Why? How do I go back to before this change happened? Which change broke the code? How do I combine two different streams of the same code? How do I collaborate with others? How do I collaborate with my past self, who knew things that my present self has forgotten?
Mercurial answers all of these questions! Like git and others, Mercurial is a distributed version control system (DVCS). Big players like Python, Mozilla, Facebook and others use it to keep track of their source code. Many hosting services exist for it, such as Mozdev, Google Code, or Bitbucket.
During our workshop, we will introduce the basics of using DVCS and how to configure and use Mercurial to suit your needs. The presentation will be in English, but we encourage questions and discussions in French.
Just bring your laptop, we'll have power and wifi!
