Version Control By Example

Eric Sink from Source Gear just published a great book called Version Control by Example you should check out.  I was fortunate enough to have been able to be a reviewer on the book.  To my delight he sent me a signed copy and listed my name as a reviewer.

I was also recently selected by Microsoft Research to participate in a toolbar UI study in which I was able to review new features for toolbar management and UI layout in Visual Studio.  This was a good experience and Microsoft provided me a fee copy of Mac Office 2011 for my participation.

If you have an opportunity to be part of these types of reviews and projects I encourage you to participate!

Be sure to get Eric’s new book at or buy here
