One of my co-workers retired back in the Spring, but still stops by to visit on occasion. He understood the importance of software source control, but had a few struggles with it. As he was leaving after his most recent visit, we had this brief exchange
- Co-Worker: You know, I left on March 15 and haven’t had any tree conflicts since then.
- Me: That’s great! No branches falling in the back yard?
- Co-Worker: Well… at least, they weren’t trying to merge.
It’s difficult to get much geekier than when you’re making source control puns.
