4D is on GitHub!

If you're at all involved in other projects besides 4D you're probably aware of GitHub, or perhaps you've heard of it otherwise (I mentioned it during the recent webinar about SVN and 4D).

 

GitHub is hugely popular with the Web-development crowd and, to a larger/growing extent, anyone involved in the Open Source community. It might seem strange that 4D, being a proprietary platform vendor, would get involved with GitHub (or maybe even look like band-wagoning :). That's definitely not the case though, this is really a guerrilla effort to get the 4D community out in the open in a more structured fashion. If you want access to some cool 4D tools, or have something the contribute, read on!

 

 

Most professional developers today use some form of Revision Control (RC). The primary advantage that git offers is that it is a distributed RC system. This actually isn't all that important for 4D projects (I will explain this in detail in my next Blog).
