It has again been a while since I blogged - or video-blogged for that matter. I won't offer any excuses - I've been very busy over the past month. I…
If you have ever worked with Microsoft’s Team Foundation version control tools, it wasn’t easy to switch to Git. That’s not because Git was complicated – no, nothing like that at all! It was simply because you had to forget almost everything you thought you knew about version control, and then learn it anew.
There are many fundamental differences between Git and TFVC, and one of the more obvious ones to any newcomer to Git is this:
No, it’s not about the caption here. Indeed, TFVC calls individual snapshots of changes “changesets” and Git calls them “commits”, but that’s just terminology – the term in itself is not a fundamental difference. I am after something else here.(more…)
My last two webinars were a great success, and this is not only judging from my angle. Attendees were very happy with them, and the feedback I received was overwhelmingly positive. I’ve got a lot of inquiries about repeating them, and I also got a few ideas for new ones that would allow you to build on top of the knowledge gained in the first two.
So, today I am announcing the schedule for the webinars for the next three months.(more…)
I am postponing this webinar! It appears that it coincides directly with a webinar held by Arend-Jan Kauffmann, so I’ll announce different dates for this one soon.
This webinar is moved to May, please check the sidebar.
When talking about CI/CD, one word typically pops to mind: pipelines. But pipelines is just one aspect of this much wider and bigger topic. Let me just say this: Continuous integration was conceived a long time before anyone was thinking of pipelines. Continuous integration and delivery are sets of practices, a philosophy if you want, that must go through into every pore of the development process before pipelines can make much sense.
And while previous two webinars were almost agnostic of AL, and were presenting Git and related processes from nearly a pure Git perspective, this webinar has AL in central focus, and presents this important topic from the angle of an AL developer.(more…)
A few days ago I’ve announced that there will be a new series of webinars. The last webinar was a success. Apart from a few people complaining that I talked fast, and that there was too much content, I got pretty good comments. People felt quite happy with the content and that the value they received was worth the money they invested.
One thing I’ve learned was that you want to learn more about various branching models and strategies. One thing is talking about Git from the technical angle – that’s what the last webinar was about; this time I am focusing on the strategy, how to make Git work inside your organization and how to organize your repository and workflow.(more…)
