Version Control by Example

Free online book Version Control by Example

by Eric Sink, founder of SourceGear (maker of Vault),
software craftsman,
and creator of new version control tool "Veracity".
He also created first version of Internet Explorer.

The book describes:
  • Subversion
  • Mercurial
  • Git
  • Veracity
The book is also available as a free printed book, with free shipping!

A kind of advertising, apparently printed book could be cheaper than AdWords!
