"Choosing Git Workflows that makes sense", with Tim Cunningham

  • August 16, 2012 · 12:00 PM
  • Online meeting via Adobe Connect

Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday Aug 16 will be "Choosing Git Workflows that makes sense", with Tim Cunningham.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

Git is awesome, this is known. Git doesn't restrict how you do things and that can be a two edged sword. If you are working by yourself you can get away with working however you wish. If you are collaborating with others there needs to be some sort of method to the madness, this is where workflows come in.

Work flows a common template of branching and merging code. It is not something you install, rather it is a way of working. In our discussion we will discuss two of the most common workflows:

Github flow

After discussing these you will be better able to decide for yourself which would work better in your organization or adapt the model to fit your needs better.

LOGGING IN: When you login to the Connect room (the experts.adobeconnect.com/cfmeetup link above) to view the meeting, PLEASE USE THE "LOGIN AS GUEST" option, and USE YOUR NAME (not "guest", please). Do NOT attempt to login, either with a Connect account or your meetup.com username/password. Just sign in as a guest.

RSVP, but only if coming: We do appreciate folks RSVPing if they plan to come (using the link on this email or at the meetup site), though it's not mandatory and it's not a commitment. But there's no need to RSVP if you can't make it let alone explain why you can't. With nearly 3,000 members, no worries. :-)

FEEDBACK/MEETING DISCUSSION: Members will receive an email after the meeting or can click a link on the event page to offer.

ADD THIS TO YOUR CALENDAR: Want to add this event to your own personal calendar? After logging in here , you'll see an option at the top of the event page, just below the event title,  saying, "Export", which offers calendar downloads for Outlook, iCal, Google, and Yahoo calendars. (Note that the calendar entry created will show the event taking 2 hours. That's a default that meetup.com has chosen, which I can't change. The meetings are generally about an hour, though often go as much as 30-45 minutes longer with Q&A and chat.)

    Note: Someone during the presentation asked about printing out your git history. I just blogged about a way to export your history to json, so you can then format it how you wish: http://cfmumbojumbo.com/cf/index.cfm/coding/convert-your-git-log-to-json/

    Tim is an amazing addition to the Adobe and Coldfusion communities. His presentations are very informative and easy to follow. This one was no exception. He shared his knowledge and experiences with choosing, implementing, and using a Git workflow within his company. The presentation along with multiple questions from attendees made this meetup a great success.

    Note: Several have asked me to share my method for deploying to production websites using my home grown combination of bash scripts and CFExecute. I blogged about it for you: http://cfmumbojumbo.com/cf/index.cfm/coding/how-i-deploy-websites-using-git/
