This screencast sounded promising so after checking the preview I paid $10 to watch it. 49 minutes later, and I feel like my time has been wasted. This screencast talks about a made up version control system at a very high level, and will not help you understand how or when to use various commands (as the description eludes to).
It starts out as a good idea, but would at best only be of use to a smart manager. If you want to learn how to actually use version control systems, the peepcode screencast is where you want to be.
Jim isn’t a good presenter; he sounds rather phlegmy for my tastes, and he talks down to the audience as if he’s some kind of high ranking badger. The quality of production was also very low, with very unattractive graphics. I don’t use a mac, so I don’t particularly care, but trust me: if you use a mac you won’t appreciate his awful taste in colours, shapes and fonts.
The ultimate failing of this video is that it was a waste of time to watch and a waste of money to buy.
