Splunk: Why we dumped Perforce for Atlassian's Bitbucket of Gits


Re: I really hate GIT

In a former life I made a living automating merging and testing of changes in a company that relied on P4. I, having no previous experience of version control systems, found it very easy to work with and pretty much self-explanatory. I've since tried to use git and simply cannot get my head around it. Nothing I used to find obvious with p4 seems even possible with git.

All that said, I have it on good authority that everything I made a living writing millions of lines of Perl to accomplish, comes as standard with git. But I wonder if any of that is worth the pain of learning it in the first place. I've gone back to good old SVN.
