What comes after Git? or, Building a cloud-native version control system in F#
Git is 17 years old, and although it's dominant in 2023, Git's UX is challenging (to say the least) and nothing in our business lasts forever. There are multiple projects exploring what might come next.
Grace is one of those projects: a new, open-source, cloud-native version control system, written in F# and using Dapr, that aims to make version control easy to use, easy to understand, and powerful by using modern cloud services to deliver scale and performance.
Join me for a look at a blank-sheet redesign of what version control might be, including modern features that help keep you in flow and connect you in real-time to the rest of your team. I'll talk about my journey with F#, why it's a great language to use for this work, how relying on open-source has accelerated the project, and what problems I've dealt with (and rewritten code for) along the way.
