About This Title

In Pragmatic Guide to Subversion, author Mike Mason shares the features and practices that have made Subversion so successful. Each of the 48 tasks selected for the book is presented as a quick two-pager, with a succinct description on the left side and a quick reference on the right. The book is designed for experienced developers—you want to get straight to the tricks and traps you’d otherwise learn by trial and error.

Subversion started life as a command-line tool, but graphical clients are now extremely popular and can offer a lot of extra power. For every task in Pragmatic Guide to Subversion, you get to see how to carry out the task via the regular command-line client as well as the TortoiseSVN graphical client for Windows, and the Cornerstone graphical client for Mac.

Whether or not you’ve used other version control tools, you’ll learn Subversion’s popular way of working—how to access your source code, make changes, and share them with your team.

You won’t find a more practical approach to learning Subversion than Pragmatic Guide to Subversion.
