on the topic:
Migration from bespoke SCM to Git
Joint solution for Josra members
Volvo Truck corporation
Entrance through the B-Gate
Street address is Gropegårdsgatan
The meeting is limited to 14 persons.
The members of the Joint Open Source Roadmap Alliance who are working in bespoke IBM SCM systems (ClearCase, CM Synergy) gathers to explore common ground for collaboration when migrating or bridging to Git
On initiative from Grundfos and Volvo, Praqma is facilitating a full day workshop and unconference in which we will try to establish common ground for a joint effort in developing tools, support and techniques for migrating from centralized SCM systems to Distributed VCS systems such as Git.
We’re encouraging more Josra members to join the gathering.
The Git processes and workflow and comparable migrations from Subversion are well established elsewhere in context of Josra members: Atmel, Novelda and Yxlon International.
We will discuss how it is possible to become part of the same automated git flow and what strategies can be used to either migrate or bridge ClearCase or CM Synergy to make a smooth transition.
