Git and GitHub for SVN developers

The WebXpo Event in Sofia

  Yesterday I attended the WebXpo event in Sofia, managed by Web & Events. There were plenty of different topics to be discussed on website development, design, usability and so on. I’ve written a review in Bulgarian in my other blog. It was a great pleasure listening to the discussion of the website price. Three experts
