Git versus Subversion

Comparison, Advantages and Disadvantages (Git-WS4)


You are planning to migrate your version control system onto an up-to-date open source tool. The distributed system Git, and Subversion with its central repository approach, are the most popular tools at present.

Subversion is a powerful tool with a multitude of functionalities. Users of other version control systems will notice many similarities, but will also need to approach some concepts differently to get the most out of Subversion.

In recent years, Git has become one of the most popular version control systems around. Its distributed nature allows for rapid and flexible development and experimentation, notably even at times without direct access to the (corporate) mainframe. Nevertheless, centralized forms of organization are still possible with Git, without giving up the benefits of distributed version control.

This workshop outlines and compares the advantages and disadvantages of both tools. You want to know more about basic concepts and architecture of Subversion and/ or Git? You have specific questions regarding both tools: How do I generate a repository? How do I solve update conflicts? What are the essential differences between the concepts of the two tools? Can I use both tools together and how? The workshop will answer these questions, and more.

After a theoretical introduction there will be practical experience with exercises for Subversion and Git.


  • Solid knowledge of architecture and functioning of Git and Subversion
  • Knowledge and effective use of the features provided by Subversion
  • working collectively and in parallel in software projects being managed with Subversion
  • insight into the functioning of the object database of Git
  • working with git on the command line
  • comparison of both concepts
