It’s live! Version Control for Domino Designer, Part 1 — Getting Started in THE VIEW

Note: this post has been migrated from another blog. Some links may be broken.

I’m happy that my most recent article in THE VIEW is online:

“Get the peace of mind that comes with having all versions of your code safely stored and readily accessible. Thanks to a new plug-in for IBM Lotus Domino Designer 8.5.2, you can now compare recent versions of your code with older versions and safely return to a working version of your code any time after making changes. In part 1, acquire a grounding in basic versioning concepts and step-by-step instructions for setting up your Designer environment to work with version-control software. Then, in part 2, learn to work with version control in most common scenarios.”

Included in this first article are step-by-step instructions with a LOT of screenshots to setup:

– your own SVN server
– a SVN client for Windows
– all neccessary plugins for Domino Designer 8.5.2

And beside that you learn something about the general idea of a version control system and why you can’t live without it.
