Open Source Subversion Training: SubTrain
company has decided to switch to Subversion. Migration was
successful and you are ready to kick start your new projects in a brand
new Subversion repository. Then you realize that not everybody has
spent as much time with Subversion as you have. As a matter of fact you
realize that you are almost the only one who is familiar with
Subversion. You might be surprised at how often we encounter people in
just this situation!
Understanding that your colleagues have to
learn how to use Subversion (and soon), you roll up your sleeves and
put in another long coffee and pizza night preparing a bunch of slides
that you hope will help get your teams up to speed with Subversion. Not
that pizza or coffee are bad things – we just don't see why
have to "reinvent the wheel", especially when training isn't your field
At Polarion, not only do we have a great
deal of expertise building tools and solutions that leverage Subversion
in innovative, ground-breaking ways, we also have a great deal of
expertise in training, and we built a pretty nice set of materials for
our expert Subversion
But our Professional Services team isn't big enough to deliver our
training programs everywhere, so we thought, "Why not use the open
source concept for our training materials!" — and SubTrain
