Git has become an essential tool in modern software development workflows, providing a robust and flexible foundation for version control and collaboration. But, it’s not limited to just code. It is also used for versioning and tracking changes in various types of files and projects, including hardware development.
Our co-founder Kyle Dumont joined Chris Gammell in episode #505 of The Amp Hour Electronics Podcast to talk about revision control for hardware projects.
Need to organize schematic, PCB and supporting files? Here are some ways to do so more easily by setting up your Altium project on Git.
I was always quick to utilize digital design tools to augment my hardware designs. Programming classes were a big part of my undergraduate program, so even starting as an intern, I was given a lot of coding work that hardware engineers didn’t want to do (usually automating test fixtures or scopes).
In the world of software development, Git has etched its name as the go-to version control system. Git’s advantages to productivity and focus on continuous improvement have helped spawn entire industries. But what about its application in the realm of hardware?
We live at the dawn of a golden age of hardware development. The tools being built are powerful, fast, and focused on saving money and time but not necessarily with an intuitive user interface. Git has a reputation for being clunky and severe, but everyone participating in the tool-building ecosystem has taken Git a long way from its command line only roots.
We’ve been asked the question, “How can I best manage large complex projects with multiple PCBAs?” Here’s an overview.
Git was created as a result of controversy. Before its launch in 2005, the Linux kernel’s continued development was revoked of its free, open-source status. A proprietary DVCS called Bitkeeper set out to control the market. By being too little too late, the end result was the rapid growth of Git in software that continues today.
I sat down with our co-founders, Kyle & Valentina, to understand their relationships with customers and how they shape AllSpice’s product roadmap.
Hardware project management is one of the most important facets of delivering reliable hardware under budget and on time. It is critical to be able to capture all of the things your team wants to work on and schedule who works on what and when.
