In Soviet Russia, the trunk breaks youPosted: May 30, 2010
I was kind of skeptical about all the hype surrounding Git (I know, I must be the last geek to join the bandwagon). And then, it struck me: everyone says it’s awesome, maybe I should teach myself more than cloning Git repositories ? I was very pleased with my time investment; let me say my heart went pitter-patter and tears of geek-joy wrestled their way to my cheeks when I got a real measure of the power of this beast.
One of the immediate advantages is that I can now commit broken code to the trunk ! I’m often forced to do just that when I actually when to leave my desk at work, come back home and enjoy a few hours of programming from my living room whilst watching some Greek tragedy unfold (America’s Next Top Model, Rock of Love, A Shot at love with Tila Tequila, etc.) and enjoying a slice of pizza.
GIT is 100% distributed, which means that one travels with a copy of the whole repository and pushes it to an external repository when needs be. I’ll never break trunk again, I promise !
