Andrew L. and Dmitri N.


The GitHub code base is growing at over 25% every year through contributions from over 1000 engineers, clocking in at 1.7+ million lines of Ruby. In this talk, we’ll share how we use linters to keep our codebase healthy by ensuring best practices are applied consistently, feedback loops are as short as possible, and code reviews bring the most value, all without creating too much friction.

Joel is a staff engineer on the Design Infrastructure team at GitHub, where he works to help engineers build consistent user interfaces in one of the largest Ruby code bases in the world.
