Description

Selena loves Git and EmmaJane loves Bazaar. And like all good nerds they’ve spent a fair amount of time talkin’ smack about the other’s version control system (VCS).

But what really makes a good VCS? What are the questions you need to ask to pick the right VCS for your work environment? In this talk we’ll help you to learn how to weed through the smack-down-talk and choose the best system for your needs today (and in the future).

Please participate in the creation of this talk by tweeting and denting your questions. We’re keeping a running total at www.bzrvsgit.com.
