Why Jub Jub has been using Mercurial (hg) for Source Control for a few years.

Posted April 23, 2010  |  By Robert Wallis, Senior Developer  |  Filed under: Web Programming

Good websites are software. Software needs source control. Historically developers used CVS and Microsoft Visual SourceSafe (VSS) among others.

We looked back on all the bad times with VSS and CVS and were so impressed. So impressed and proud of ourselves for learning something new that we didn't even see the problems. But someone did.
