Book Review: Software Configuration Management Patterns - Effective Teamwork, Practical Integration, by Stephen P Berczuk and Brad Appleton
I didn't learn much from this book, but that's not actually such a bad thing, because it confirmed that I have the right ideas on this subject, broadly speaking. Which is just as well, as I do seem to be heading in this direction as a not-unwelcome sideline at work. It is perhaps a little disappointing that I didn't feel I've picked up much, and the book does feel a bit dated in places (published 2003 - SVN is listed as "forthcoming"). It also suffers from occasionally careless formatting gremlins and one place where a referenced author's name is spelled differently twice in the same paragraph. But it did have one or two hints, and as with any book on patterns, it's useful even with hindsight to be able to hang a label on the way you've been working.
