For the past year in e-conomic, we have slowly, but steadily worked on replacing SVN with Git as our primary Version Control System (VCS) tool. Finally, we have reached our goal – we are now a pure Git organization!

So, I think this is a good time to take a step back and share some of my experiences and thoughts on moving from SVN to Git.

On my blog I’ve published a retrospective covering the move from SVN to Git and the steps we went through in the process: From raising awareness about Git, through planning and execution, to the different challenges – technical and otherwise – that we faced.

You can also read more about Git on my blog, including posts on how to start using Git and the benefits of moving from SVN to Git.
