Using Git for PLC Workflows: New Approaches
Originally Recorded September 01, 2022 | 2 - 3 PM ET
ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
Until now, code development for industrial automation has not been able to take advantage of modern DevOps processes that have transformed traditional software development, due to the visual nature of PLC programming and the variety of development environments. New solutions are aiming to change this, with tools tailor-built for controls and automation engineers. Applying Git capabilities directly to PLC workflows brings several benefits that lead to increased ROI in operational uptime, by delivering proven version control, simultaneous collaboration with branching and merging, and streamlined code review and approval processes.
In this session, you will learn:
- Git-based version control and its benefits for PLC programming
- The advantages of adopting modern workflows vs. outdated, impractical, and unreliable methods like copy/paste/rename with archive folders
- How embracing proven best practices helps increase efficiency, shorten timelines, and improve quality across your PLC projects
