The Power of Modern Version Control

Version Control Systems have been around for a long time, however in the last decade advancements in VCS and other powerful tools have drastically increased the size of any community that can collaborate with ease. In this talk I will focus on the combination of Git and GitHub, demo some advanced tools available in Git, and clarify some details on contributing to Open Source using GitHub.

Chris has been a PHP Developer for 10 years and has worked with many systems including Symfony2, Zend Framework 1 and 2, and Magento. He currently builds bespoke web applications with ZF1 and ZF2 and is a self-confessed Version Control Zealot. Chris is an Open Source believer and has made contributions to Open Source.
