This week we chat with Pablo Santos, founder and chief engineer of Plastic SCM, and SemanticMerge.

Pablo talks to us about how the "full stack" version control system he created at Plastic SCM differentiates itself in the age of GitHub, how times have moved on for VCS systems (largely driven by GitHub), and how it might even be being used outside of software projects now.

We also chat about SemanticMerge, which can automatically - and accurately - merge far more cases than the traditional text-only merge tools, and what this means for coders.
