Over the last couple days I took a stab at throwing my source code up into a Google Code repository. There are several options to choose from with regards to accessing your code base… “the Google” will host your code via either Mercurial or Subversion standards… quickly browsing for recommendations, I felt like Subversion was better represented. and then quickly landed on the much recommend TortoiseSVN. TortoiseSVN adds Subversion related context menus to Windows Explorer (or whatever your preferred “Finder” equivalent is). Now when I wake up in the middle of the night with an the itch to toss an idea into my current project, I don’t have to suffer through firing up my corporate Vista (ugh) laptop, waiting for a VPN connection, waiting for the remote desktop to open up… I can just pop into my VS2010 project on my main desktop (always running) and check in some code that will be right there ready to merge back into my project when I get back to my desk at work. I’ve just started using it but I’ve been back and forth a couple times and its working.
I think that’s pretty cool. Notes:
