"version control with subversion" gently and quickly took me into using Subversion. I needed to read the first few chapters twice, after that I downloaded and installed the code, and viola, my code is version controlled with minimal effort.
Subversion linked readily with my IDE, Netbeans, although subversion with different IDEs is not really covered in this book.
Thanks to this book, I did not have take my mind of my main project for long.
I read the rest of the book (skim reading some sections) and it provides clear instructions on other possibilities, and how to set up more complex and tailored systems.
A good read, presenting good knowledge, and good instruction.
My evidence is that I am now using Subversion well, whereas two weeks ago I had no clue.
I'm glad I did. The book assumes you have no background in source code control systems and walks you first through the concepts of source control in general and then carefully maps them into the Subversion tool. Although this is probably an essential handbook for anybody who is going to administer a Subversion repository - and includes a ton of information specific to repository administration - I think it would be useful for the general Subversion user as well, even somebody with a good background in another source control tool like CVS or ClearCase. Subversion has its own, unique, means of managing branches and tags and I must admit that before I read this book, I wasn't that clear on how Subversion's branching and tagging facilities differed from the other tools I'd used.
I've been disappointed in the past by technical books written by the people who maintain the software, but in this case, the authors do a good job of setting aside the product cheerleading and explaining how to use the tool for your day to day work. Definitely recommended for anybody working with Subversion and a must-have for a Subversion administrator.
