Episode 56. Let's have a frank talk about Unsafe! and why you shouldn't (or should) use it

Episode 55. Let's get GIT-it With it!

Source Control, it's one of those tools that professionally we MUST need to master. In today's episode we cover one of the "hottest" source control system out there (Git). Created by Linus Torvals, it's quirky and weird when coming from Subversion (or gosh forbid, Visual Sourcesafe). But not to worry, if you have always been wondering about Git, and how it really works (or more importantly, how to use it), this is the episode to listen to!
