Git and Stash in Software Development: An Introductory Interview

Atlassian’s Stash is a centralized system for the creation and management of Git repositories, within which the entire distributed code comes together. Since only very few projects consist of one single repository, Stash offers an easy-to-use project structure that offers quick and simple access to repositories so that you can organize and manage them.

The most important questions and answers on Git and Stash

For experienced developers, these concepts are surely known. To help our less technically-experienced readers – who perhaps do not participate directly in software development – have a general understanding of these concepts, we conducted an introductory interview with Jens Schumacher, a product manager at Atlassian.

What is Git exactly and what advantages does a distributed version control system (DVCS) offer for software development as compared with a classic central version control system? What are the advantages of Git and for Mercurial? Which challenges do you see regarding the management of repositories, particularly in regards to larger projects? What kinds of possibilities and advantages does Stash offer? And when is it actually the right time for a team to begin to learn how to work with Git and Stash?

In this in-depth interview, Jens answers the most important questions on Git as well as on the Git repository management system Stash. The following playlist contains a short overview of the interview as well as the approximately 30 minute interview.
