Presentation: Advanced Source Control - The Easy Way

Track: Solution Track / Time: Wednesday 11:30 - 12:20 / Location: Lille Sal, BORA BORA

Managing a source control system to support parallel development and release practices can be a very complex challenge.
It must cover things like: handling emergency fixes without to much interruption, rolling back wrongfully committed changes if needed, propagating emergency changes to main development streamand all feature branches.
Further, the development teams are often geographically distributed and have a hard time getting answers to questions like: Do we have the latest code? Is my fix in production yet? Does my changes affect the sprint plan? etc...

This presentation will guide the audience through a development scenario using IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) (Jazz technology), to solve all these challenges as well as reducing the complexity of a parallel development strategy. The presentation will explore RTC source control concepts like development stage streams, inter-stream delivery, roll-backs, components and stream-based development flow.
