Open Source Subversion Training: SubTrain by Polarion®

SubTrain logoYour 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 you should have to "reinvent the wheel", especially when training isn't your field of expertise.

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 Training Services. 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 was born.

What do you get with SubTrain?

SubTrain gives you a predefined set of slides and side materials that you can use for SVN training classes. Currently there are two types of courses available:

  • Subversion Administration
  • Subversion User Training

Who can benefit from SubTrain?

  • Anybody who has to deliver Subversion training in his/her company.
  • Training professionals who don't want to reinvent the wheel, but instead reuse and adapt existing materials.

The SubTrain Vision: Fun and Free

Our vision is that training programs using SubTrain materials should be a unique and fun experience for all participants – students and trainer alike. Fun to use and fun to choose.

SubTrain is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution License so you are free to use it and adapt it to your needs. For more information, see Using SubTrain.

You can contribute ideas, feedback, and additions to the SubTrain project to make it even more robust and useful for the Subversion community.
