If you've ever sat down with a more experienced developer for a pair programming session, you'd probably agree that it's one of the most effective ways to learn, and absorb new skills, tools, and tricks. So I am very happy to present you with a new webinar that will reproduce the same feel of a live training session. This is your chance to sit beside me as I work through a typical bug-fix lifecycle from branch creation, through code review, to the final merge, using the powerful toolset that Git brings

This guest post comes courtesy of Carolyn Van Slyck, a full-stack software developer and a newly converted champion for Git. Carolyn has recently spearheaded her team's source code migration from SVN to Git with the help of Stash and subgit. She will be sharing her learnings and wisdom with us today. Redefining what is possible I work at a large software company which is heavily invested in Subversion. In my division alone, we have 3 repositories, each with 100+ projects. I don't even know how

Happy Holidays from the Stash team!

On the Stash team, we are focused on building high-quality software. From mandatory code reviews to continuous performance testing to automated test suites, we take pride in ensuring that every release of Stash (14 in the past year and half) is the best product built in the best way. Why? We want to continuously improve the experience you – our customers – have with the product. Just as you would improve code quality by refactoring, for Stash 2.10 we wanted to focus on enhancing the existing

For the past few releases, we've been focused on delivering features for the developers and their workflows – forking, public repositories, and most recently, better branching. Stash 2.8 was all about upgrading your development workflow with tighter JIRA integration and branch features. We made it easy to create branches from JIRA, and set up a branch model that suits any development workflow. And now that we've simplified your workflows, in Stash 2.9, we're making them a breeze to manage. Try

Update: TL;DR: If you don't like speed, being productive and more reliable coding practices then you shouldn't use Git. (Please take the material below in good spirit, imagine the main voice is a grumpy friend stuck using SVN; no offense meant!) So, you've heard all your hipster friends raving about git. They say it's the latest and greatest, and you simply must try it. What's the real story here? I'll tell you. Speed is overrated You've heard that git changes the way you work; most operations

New webinar – “Git Branching for Agile Teams”

Moving to Git opens up a whole new level of agility for software teams. Freed from the clunky code freezes and monolithic mega-merges that plague centralized version control, developers can isolate work in progress and build in narrow vertical slices with ease. Branching is so painless with Git that many teams are making new branches for each user story or bug fix they implement. This model is quickly becoming the new gold standard for agile teams – and for good reason! Thursday November 21st
