This should be good. At the up-coming UNIX users group meeting, local
snowboarder and author Mike Mason will be talking about the excellent
Subversion version control system.

Subject: [CUUG events] September General Meeting: Subversion on Unix
Date: 21 Sep 2005 19:56:54 -0600
- PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN LOCATION -
September General Meeting
Subversion on Unix
Spearker: Mike Mason, ThoughtWorks®
When: 5:30 PM, Tuesday, September 27th
The latest and greatest open-source version control tool, Subversion, is
gathering steam and getting converts across the internet. Mike Mason will talk
about Subversion and its development model, and how thanks to Apache's Portable
Runtime it's available on every system that can run Apache web server. UNIX® is
the platform of choice for "serious" deployments, and Mike will be demoing on
MacOS X to show you something a little different. Recent surveys showed around
50% of teams don't use version control at all to manage their
assets--Subversion is useful for storing code and, as we'll see, managing other
funky stuff like system configuration and website deployments.
Mike is a developer, coach and Agile/XP evangelist with ThoughtWorks, now based
in Calgary. His recent book, Pragmatic Version Control using Subversion,
was well received by the community earlier this year. Mike has been using
version control since an accidental rm -rf * toasted his homework one night,
and Unix since the early Slackware Linux days.
Please note the change in location.
