Omni Adams: Get hooked on Git Hooks

  • Aug 12, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • SoftLayer Offices

This month we're going to have Omni Adams (a two-time Lone Star PHP speaker)  on Tuesday night, the 12th at 7pm. He's going to be talking to us about a very handy feature of the Git version control system: hooks.


Git hooks allow you to do nearly anything you want them to on certain git actions such as merging, committing, or updating. You could even build a simple continuous integration system using git hooks, shell scripts, and chicken wire. This talk will cover the basics of local and remote git hooks and build some useful hooks to help your team build better software and improve your development workflow. 

Example hooks will include running PHPCS before you commit locally, running lint and PHPCS remotely when pushing to the remote git repository, and automagically creating review requests in Review Board for new commits.


We'll be at our usual spot in the SoftLayer offices on Alpha in Dallas @ 7pm. Light food will be provided. Come join your fellow developers and hear about this powerful feature of this popular version control system!

Who: Omni Adams

When: Tuesday, Aug. 12th @ 7pm

Where: Softlayer Offices on Alpha

    The presentation was awesome. Very useful to keep stable repositories and deploy production safe code.
