SVN to Git

SVN to Git migration

SVN to Git

SVN was a good enough version control system (VCS) and sometimes even a synonym for VCS in everyday talks. However, technologies change and the way of developing computer software as well, in my opinion, SVN became some kind of “disturbing” or “breaking” thing in development process. It’s slow, centralized and linear. I mean it’s really slow. And when Git was introduced, usually nobody realized how it’s different to SVN and why we need it. Today it’s de-facto standard for VCS. It has a bit different logic, but you can get used to it relatively quickly without any problems.

Can’t find and install Skype (or another app) in Android Market?

I came across this issue few months ago when I bought an Android phone (HTC Wildfire) and of course I needed Skype to be there as I’m using it at work. I was aware that Skype team already released an updated Skype for Android app that supports low-resolution displays (320×240 in this case) and my device was listed on official websites as supported one. But guess what? I even couldn’t find Skype app in Market on my phone, only some chinese apps and searching it by process name returned me 404.
