uberSVN fans may remember that we announced our codenaming strategy for uberSVN last month. For those not already in the know: Apple name their releases after big cats (Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Lion) and Google name their releases after desserts (Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich) but since uberSVN is developed entirely in Sheffield, UK, we decided to show our support for the local area, and name our releases after all our favourite Sheffield pubs.
The current release of uberSVN is codenamed Blake, after the Blake pub in Walkley, Sheffield, and to commemorate the release, we had a great night out at the Blake just before the holiday season. But, after the success of uberSVN Blake (we’ve now had over 50,000 downloads!) we felt we had to do something extra special, so we nipped back to the Blake and presented the owners with a very special, uberSVN plaque, as a “thank you” for letting us use their name.
Check out this photo of Kevin Walke, head of support at WANdisco, presenting the Blake staff with their uberSVN plaque (just before it took pride of place behind the bar!)
We’re looking forward to the next release!
