Source Control Walkthroughs

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Visual Studio .NET provides integrated source control services. You can use the most common source control commands on your files, projects, and solutions without leaving the Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

These walkthroughs are designed to help you set up and use integrated source control services effectively. They build on each other, introducing concepts and suggesting best practices to help you better understand and handle some of the more complex source control scenarios. For this reason, it is important to work through them in the order that they appear.
