Ever wondered how large organizations with thousands of developers and massive infrastructure migrate from Subversion to Git? In this workshop, we’ll review existing strategies for SVN to Git migration and discuss which strategies scale better. We’ll demonstrate how SVN and Git infrastructure may co-exist peacefully during the migration period and what to do if you desperately want to use Git but that’s against your company’s policy.
