Edward and Martin talk with their old boss Eric Sink about the history of version control as he's seen it - and helped create it. Eric founded SourceGear, a company that created several version control products, and literally wrote the book on version control, Version Control by Example.

In his own words:

Eric's work in version control tools includes SourceGear Vault, which was quite popular in the early days of .NET, and Veracity, which was one of the open source DVCS tools that got crushed by Git. SourceGear today has pivoted to become a 12-step recovery program for people addicted to writing version control tools.
