Thanks to Mr Aaron Bartell (of Krengel Technologies) for this excellent article on using GIT for controlling source code changes on IBM i.
I've been doing this for a while on source code for PROJEX4i and have kept meening to write a little blog about it. Aaron's article nicely touches on the high level concepts of GIT, it's ease of use and nice documentation techniques. Perhaps I will follow this up with another blog talking about GITHUB and it's lovely windows GUI for GIT'ting things

In a previous article, we learned about Ruby methods and encapsulation. During the various exercises there were many code changes made and we didn't really have a simple way to keep track of how the code changed from one version to the next. That's where source change management (SCM) tools like git come into play and is what we will be diving into with this article.
