               Distributed Version Control Systems and Git

 Source Code Management or Version Control is an important aspect of
 software development.  For over a decade, CVS, a centralized SCM, was the
 dominant player in software to manage a project's code history and handle
 concurrent development by multiple programmers.

 In the past few years, new version control systems based on the idea of
 distributed systems.  This presentation will explain basic concepts in
 source code management, review the history and overall themes of
 centralized systems such as CVS and Subversion, and also introduce
 distributed SCMs and their benefits over the older systems.  Git is used
 as a concrete example of a distributed SCM and a brief introduction to Git
 features not present in most SCMs will also be featured.
