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.

          - PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE IN LOCATION -


September General Meeting
Subversion on Unix
Spearker: Mike Mason, ThoughtWorks®
Location: SAIT
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, 
(http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/titles/svn/index.html)
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.
