We meet at 19:30 at the new Memonic office at Badenerstrasse 120, Z├╝rich (this is not the Liip office!).

Distributed Version Control with Mercurial

Distributed version control tools like Mercurial are faster and more flexible than the traditional tools like CVS and SVN. Mercurial is used by projects ranging in size from a single developer up to very large projects such as Firefox and OpenOffice.

The talk will have two parts: Martin Geisler ( #mgsys ) from aragost Trifork will start by giving you an introduction to Mercurial and distributed version control.

Afterwards, Cedric Staub from Wyona will present a case study of how switching from Subversion to Mercurial allowed for greater flexibility in their development process.
