I gave the second part of the talk on Version Control and hg for my group (check the first part). Here you have the slides:
I am working in collaboration with some of my colleagues to write a pipeline for calculating some tests for our projects.
The idea is to use hg to coordinate the writing of these scripts. We will have a reference version of the scripts on a private bitbucket.org repository; then, everybody will synchronize its local copy of the scripts from there, uploading new changes to the same place.
Some of my colleagues told me that hg is much easier than what they thought. I am very happy of this because I was worried about it being too difficult to use. It is really a long time that I want to convince my colleagues to adopt some version control tools, and it seems that it was easier than what I expected.
