In this episode, we talk to Kirill, a proud member of the VCS team, here at JetBrains. This is the team behind all your git support in your IDE. This is an interesting conversation, because the world of Version Control was not always so uniform. A decade ago there were many competing applications, but most recently, git has come out victorious. Kirill talks about how the initial version control program in IntelliJ came to be, and how it supported both distributed and centralised systems.
