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. This 60-minute Webinar examines new solutions that aim 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.
An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
