Mercurial Conference Paris 2019

Mercurial is a free distributed Source Control Management system. It offers an intuitive interface to efficiently handle projects of any size. With its powerful extension system, Mercurial can easily adapt to any environment.

This first edition targets organizations that are currently using Mercurial or considering switching from another Version Control System, such as Subversion.

Attending the conference will allow users to share ideas and version control experiences in different industries and at a different scales. It is a great opportunity to connect with Mercurial core developers and get updates about modern workflow and features.

Mercurial conference is co-organized by Logilab, Octobus & RhodeCode.
