CHANGE HISTORY
========================================================
AUTHOR            LAST MODIFIED  DESCRIPTION
========================================================
v-someone        2008-08-21       Initial Version

It’s official, we are at the end of 2008 and there are lots of good source control tools out there(some of the best are free).

You don’t need to keep putting change history comments in your source if you are using source control. If you add comments when you commit your code this will be handled for you.

  1. Amen, brother!

    And, for me, I’m tired of those habituated to Hungarian notation. We have really great IDEs in this era that make prefixing vars with their type not much more than an eyesore.

  2. I agree! The only place it might be nice to see some change comments is in SQL items like Sprocs. Actually, pretty much sprocs only. Or not at all. I reserve the right to contradict myself. :D

  3. Funny, I was going to leave an Amen, Brother but saw that somebody else already said that.

    Thanks for speaking at the user group meeting the other night. Hope your drive back wasn’t too horrible.

  4. It was fun to do the talk up at cvineta.org. The drive back was pretty slow…took about 2 hours.
