Version control is a tool for keeping track of all changes to files in a project. It can be used to monitor the evolution of a project, undo unwanted changes, and in the case of collaborative editing managing conflicting changes. It is particularly useful in programming projects where, for example, you may want to undo changes which caused bugs in your code, or to run code which may rely on a previous version of your project. Version control systems can also be used as a tool for distributing software.
This session will introduce the popular open source and cross-platform version control system Subversion. The session will take the form of a tutorial where those attending will set-up their own Subversion repository, and put some code they're working on under version control.
