Work Flow for Solo Developers and Small Teams

A session at CMS Expo 2013

Wednesday 15th May, 2013

3:30pm to 4:30pm (CST)

Problem: Developers face a steep learning curve when they choose to adopt version control.S
Solution: There is a version control strategy to suit your workflow, even if you've always thought it was too hard to bother.

Is your project folder filled with files like this: page.old.2.bak.php? Does Git make you angry inside? Do you resent that everyone except you regularly visits the magical place referred to as "The Command Line"? Are you afraid of the vagrant who stole your puppet? In this session you will get a gentle introduction to working efficiently as a developer in small teams, or as a solo developer. We'll focus on real world examples you can actually use to make your work faster and more efficient.

Yes, this is an introductory session. This is for people who feel shame that they don't know how to "just cd into yer root durrr" and get mad when people say "just diff me a patch" as if it's something as easy as making a mai thai even though you have no rum. No, you don't have to have git installed to attend. You don't even need to know where the command line is on your computer.
