Summary

This chapter barely scratches the surface, but I think it'll be useful to get a sense of the topic. If you have wide Subversion repositories, you will probably need better training before starting to convert them to Git, but for small to medium ones, now you know the fundamentals to begin with.

The only suggestion I want to share with you is to not be in a hurry; start by letting Git cooperate with your Subversion server, reorganize your repository when it's messy, do a lot of backups, and finally try to convert it; you will convert it more than once, as I did, but in the end you will get more satisfaction from doing that.

In the next chapter, I will share with you some useful resources I found during my career as a Git user.
