Details

So, you've ditched SVN, Perforce or Visual SourceSafe, and all your code is in Git. What now?

Hugely successful and highly scaled software engineering companies like Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Uber choose to go towards a monolithic repository structure even in the current world of microservices and small empowered teams.

While there are tradeoffs to be considered there is obviously one right way to organize your source code, but how?

This meetup will be all about choosing the best Git practices for you and your software organization. After the debate you will know the whys, whats and hows of one vs. many Git repositories in a software organization.

Talks:

“Scaling with Git: From monolith, to poly repos, to mega repos” by Kenneth Boegh, Senior Software Engineer, Uber
Uber is currently moving from a poly repo structure towards mega repos. Kenneth will take us on a journey where he will tell about why Uber have chosen as they did. Kenneth will be sharing some of the experience they have gained from scaling the company and how it have affected their git strategy over time.

“Repositories for the rest of us” by Johan Abildskov, Continuous Delivery Consultant, Praqma
Huge companies invest massive amounts of effort into developer processes and custom tooling fit for cloud scale.
But what about the rest of us. When we don't have thousands of developers, and can't compile a custom version of Git that fits our needs perfectly.
In this talk Johan will show efficient workflows and tools for the rest of us!
