From 9:30am until 3:30pm Rick Martin taught a stalwart group of Clarion Developers all about Version Control! And we recorded the whole thing! Watch it in bits and pieces, lots of good information to absorb! We also had great help from Flint Gatrell and Mark Goldberg!

"This session was great. I listened throughout the afternoon (Central Time zone) on my tablet while at the non-Clarion day job. Thanks to Rick Martin for his tireless efforts in presentation and question/answer.

Thank you and Arnold for hosting and Rick Martin for being center stage! I’ve used version control previously in other flavors so I know how beneficial it can be. This was the impetus I needed to get back in to it and get it working here. Probably wouldn’t have happened for a while without the CAT.


I’ve already made the switch to SQL here but I’ll be hooking up to that one to see what more I can learn and on the off chance I can help some one.

Thanks to all for all your hard work!
