Hi and welcome back to Weekly Dev Tips. I’m your host Steve Smith, aka Ardalis.

This is episode 59, on versioning and semver, with guest Jon Skeet.

This week I'm excited to introduce Jon Skeet, who works for Google and is renowned for his Stack Overflow reputation. Jon's going to share some of his knowledge about versioning software, which can certainly be tricky business. I'll let him take it from here.

"Versioning is all about what you do guarantee for future versions and how they relate to previous versions."

# Back to Steve

Thanks, Jon! I definitely learned something from that, and I'm sure many of my listeners did as well. I've added a link to your book web site and twitter profile to the show notes.
