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 🙂

Use SourceTree for better XPages Source Control (some sort of transcript)

I bet everybody enjoyed David Leedy’s Use SourceTree for better XPages Source Control video-tutorial. At the time I was looking at SourceTree so David’s guidance came in the right time.

To assist my fellow colleague developers I wrote a document or some sort of manual on using SourceTree for source control and I used David’s tutorial for a transcript.

I hope you enjoy reading it.
