This is part two in a series of blogs about migrating source code from one version control system (VCS) to another. Part one was about migrating code from Subversion to Mercurial, in case you missed it. This time we’re tackling something a little trickier: migrating from Visual SourceSafe (VSS) to Mercurial.
The Mercurial site has a page that describes two possible approaches, and for whatever it’s worth I found the second more direct and easier than the first. The only real down side is that you need Visual SourceSafe set up and working, which I no longer had. So here’s the high-level view of the procedure:Posted In:

So what is this NuGet thing anyway? Non-Microsoft developers can be forgiven for asking the question, but NuGet has become increasingly hard for Microsoft developers to ignore in the last few years. There aren’t many projects created in Visual Studio these days that don’t leverage one or more NuGet packages. As somebody soon giving a DevTalk on the subject of Controlling Component Chaos with NuGet and Versioning, trust me when I say that’s a good thing. I remember the pre-NuGet days all too well. I’d learn about some Great New Thing™ (GNT) that all the cool kids were using and positively cringe at the prospect of using it.

Like their competitors around the globe, most companies in Japan, Korea and China are under considerable pressure to release products faster and at high levels of quality. While the use of English language tools is tolerable for many developers in these countries, a localized user experience (UI, documentation and error messages) means faster, more productive and—let’s face it—happier contributors. Simply put, with localized products, users are unhindered from translating back-and-forth in their heads as they go.
