In 2008, only Linux kernel committers and other early adopters used Git. Almost everyone else used Subversion. Ten years later, Git is the most popular product. Which makes me wonder: what will we use another ten years from now? And what would YOU want from your version control software in 2028? More speed? Better collaboration support? No merge conflicts ever?
In this talk I’ll discuss a few post-Git products, including Fossil, Veracity and Pijul, and their support for the features we so dearly desire. I’ll also try to predict which one will be ‘the top dog’ in 2028.
So attend this session if you’re excited about the future of version control and if you want to have a shot at beating even (!) the early adopters. Now if it turns out I was right, remember that you heard it here first. ?
