Free webinar showcases groundbreaking capabilities of uberSVN

Leading industry expert Adrian Bridgwater hosts webinar demonstrating how WANdisco's uberSVN has transformed Apache Subversion into an open extensible platform for ALM and given it a social coding environment for the first time.


WANdisco, a leading provider of Apache Subversion-based software and services for the enterprise, has announced an exclusive webinar taking place on June 1. During this free one hour session, attendees will learn how WANdisco's uberSVN has transformed the world's most popular SCM into an open platform for application lifecycle management (ALM) that's easy to install, easy to use and easy to extend.


The initial reaction to uberSVN has been amazing, We knew this product would create quite a buzz because of the new capabilities it gives Subversion users," said David Richards, President and CEO of WANdisco. "I am delighted that Adrian Bridgwater has agreed to host this webinar. His expertise in software development and application lifecycle management will provide powerful insights for development organizations looking to maximize Subversion's potential."

Thousands of free downloads of the easy to install, easy to use platform were logged within hours of WANdisco unveiling uberSVN last week. This webinar, hosted by popular industry expert, Adrian Bridgwater, will show how this open ALM software empowers developers by giving them the widest choice of toolsets to use simultaneously with Apache Subversion.

During this 60-minute webinar, which takes place at 9am PDT on June 1, Adrian and WANdisco will explain how uberSVN gives Subversion users:

  • Freedom to choose – no vendor lock-in: Choose the best open source and closed source applications for defect tracking, project management, build management, and other ALM functions and replace them any time.
  • Easy to use web interface and model configuration: uberSVN includes rich Subversion system and user administration capabilities and a model configuration that take the hassle out of managing and deploying Subversion. Expert users can change the configuration anytime.
  • The first ever integrated social coding environment for Subversion: uberSVN is organized around development teams and their activities. Each development team has its own home page that profiles the team members, lists the projects they're working on, repositories they're using and their latest activity and status. Team members can see each other's real-time progress by subscribing to Twitter-like feeds.
  • A solid foundation built on top of WANdisco's pure certified Subversion binaries: These free, certified, fully tested Subversion binaries undergo the same rigorous QA and WANdisco's Enterprise Subversion solutions that support the world's largest deployments.

About Subversion

Apache Subversion (SVN) is a version control system initiated in 2000. It is used to maintain current and historical versions of files such as source code, web pages, and documentation. Its goal is to be a mostly-compatible successor to the widely used Concurrent Versions System (CVS). In a 2007 report by Forrester Research, Subversion was recognized as the sole leader in the Standalone Software Configuration Management (SCM) category and a strong performer in the Software Configuration and Change Management (SCCM) category. Subversion is released under the Apache License, making it free software.
