What Will I Learn?
  • How to setup the Subversion source code repository system using Apache 2.X server as the backbone to access the repository.
  • Know how to add, move, and delete and manage files in the repository.
  • How to design and implement a new Subversion Repository to meet your needs.
  • How to successfully develop a branching and merging strategy to manage parallel development.
View Curriculum
  • You need to be able to start an administrative session (windows - command prompt, Mac/Linux sudo or root)
  • You need to feel comfortable changing directories, editing files, creating directories and know a few administrative commands.
  • A basic desire to build a development environment that you can use to explore and achieve your future goals.

This course is for people who want to learn Apache Subversion SVN and how to setup a complete development environment.

Learn Subversion 1.9x on a Windows, Mac, or Linux machine.

Covers the new features introduced in 1.8.x and 1.9.x versions.

  • Download, Install, and Configure Subversion with Apache 2.2.x Web Server.
  • Create a Tutorial Repository for practice and YOUR repository using best practices.
  • Practice with sample files how to import, create, modify, delete, and view files.
  • Learn how to probe the repository and identify when changes were made.
  • Build and configure your Subversion development environment using Perl and Python.
  • Learn all about Hooks. Program scripts that execute when a user runs a specific command.
  • Learn how to attach properties to files (both Revision and Non-Revision).
  • Learn how parallel development is done through branching and merging.

One course that covers Windows, Mac, and Linux.

I provide quality SVN training on how to use the tool by:

  • Showing you what commands to use as you add content into the repository.
  • I provide you with Perl/Python scripts that you can use that will help you develop a workflow to store and identify content.
  • I provide you with the knowledge you need to understand the concepts of parallel development through branching and merging.
  • I show the quintessential branching and merging patterns you need in order to use it for your development.
  • I provide a real working coding example of how to take code and add a new feature to the code using the branching and merging techniques.

Here's what you learn about the tools:

  • How to setup the Subversion source code repository system using Apache 2.X server as the backbone to access the repository.
  • You learn the basic and advanced commands, including how to use the import command to populate files in the Repository.
  • You learn the best-practices on how to setup a repository of your own separate from the one we use to learn with.
  • You learn how to build Perl and Python from source code we download for Linux/Mac.
  • You learn how to integrate a graphical Diff/Merge tool that is free on the internet to enhance the usability of Subversion.

My name is Bill Oliver, and what I love to do the most is build and maintain development environments. I've done this for the past 20 years for large corporations and startup companies, from designing and implementing complex build environments, setting up and configuring tools throughout the software development cycle, to managing complex development systems in source code management tools similar to subversion.
