A new way of working: SCM

A new company, a new pc (mac), a new way of working. Change brings opportunity so I decided to move some of my OpenNTF projects, lab projects and code to GitHub.

So far it works just fine and I feel kinda stupid to stick myself for a long time in the old way of working (application templates, shared drives, post code to this blog). Switching between machines/virtual environments has become much nicer.

As tools I choose for DDE, Swiper, SourceTree and Github. I have not come so far with the command line, although the Try Git tutorial on Code School demonstrates it should not be that difficult.

Next step is probably setup a package manager in combination with a task runner.  A bit inspired by Keith Strickland’s presentation at Engage.

Probably I am missing something in my setup but I am happy to read about that in the comments 🙂

    Hi Bruce, not sure what you are meaning but on OpenNTF you have the option to direct from your project to GitHub. So basically you could remove your code from OpenNTF and miss the glorious download counter. So for now I remain both.

    I meant the OpenNTF repos or your own personal ones
