git bisect saved me many hours of frustration tracking down an extremely old and obscure bug.
The Git community was obviously working hard over the festive break, and slipped out version 2.7.0 of the control system earlier this week. The new version includes yet another array of updates and fixes, the full list of which you can peruse here. Github highlighted more flexible naming for git bisect, the tool for working …
"Now 40% more pompous, with an improved feature set including 3 new smug modes and a telecondescension mode, letting you look down on people from anywhere in the world.
Tomorrow's pomposity today, but only I'm smart enough to understand that."
Near the of our GIT/Atlassian road. Management are buying TFS becuase its Microsoft, and nobody gets fired for buying Microsoft.. (Yes, people really do still sadly believe this)
I would tell them about Microsofts continued march toward GIT underpinning TFS rather than the ancient sourcesafe engine, and they are buying an inferior version of what they already have, but they won't listen, and I'm looking forward to that warm smug feeling when yet another top down forced implementation driven by clueless individuals fails (again)
That's the irony lost on management. Microsoft are adopting GIT, infact everyone man and his dog are adopting it, including Enterprise, via GitHib Enterprise or Atlassian Stash.
Our management are followers, the worst kind, the ones that follow just as everyone discovers their mistakes and are planning their exit strategies...
Still there is plenty of work sweeping up the fallout :-)
