How-To's IntelliJ IDEA LiveStream Webinars

Live Stream Recording: Version Control with IntelliJ IDEA

An exciting new recording is now available on our YouTube channel.

Getting familiar with version control systems (VCS) can be very time-consuming, so to make this process quicker and more convenient for you Dmitriy Smirnov has prepared a step-by-step guide on how to work with a VCS in IntelliJ IDEA.
Dmitriy led the audience through an example task to show how a VCS works with IntelliJ IDEA.

There are many different scenarios for using VCS with IntelliJ IDEA, but to demonstrate the tool to the broadest audience, Dmitriy covered a common simple scenario. It provides an opportunity to see how the essential workflow looks and how to make, review, and redo commits. Newcomers might find the presentation useful for their future work and a good entry point for further exploration into the many small features packed into the IDE.

Those who work with the command line every day will appreciate the IntelliJ IDEA integration with the version control systems that provides a better user experience with annotations, diffs, and merge tooling (resolving conflicts) all at your fingertips.

During the presentation, Dmitriy mentioned the future development plans and what the next integrations for the IDE are likely to include. The live stream was packed full of tips and good practices that you can take away with you and apply to your coding. We hope you enjoy the content!

Please keep in mind that while the JetBrains team creates solutions, one of our main goals is to make things as intuitive as possible. Getting your feedback on how we are doing is highly appreciated. If you have any issues, please create a ticket via YouTrack or use IDEs support.
