Scientific Series on Versioning Control Systems

Versioning Control Systems can ease your life a lot. But what exactly can you gain from it, what choice do you have and which one to choose for your special case? These are the type of question which will be answered in this talk. The speaker, Benjamin Steinwender, is not only PhD student at NES. He is also researcher and system administrator at K-AI. The company we visit with the excursion on the 17th of June.
The topic is of course of interest for professionals working with documents or software in different versions.

Here a brief summary of what to expect at the talk next Wednesday.
Indroduction into Version Control Systems: Why you should not only use Backups, but more sphisticated tools. Explaining the basic technical terms and the general workflow of VCS. Showing some tools you might not know yet to improve your daily work. The talk also includes a “Choosing Guide”.
