What we're about
Upcoming events (1)
After the great 2023-kickoff we had in January, we'll continue with another interesting talk in March. In our upcoming meetup Jelrik van Hal will talk about version control in a different manner than we all know: 'branchless' Git!
One branch. That's all. No git flow. No feature branches. You commit your work onto the main branch, and push it right away. Sounds like a problem? I'll tell you why it isn't.
Traditional branching models encourage technical solutions to a human problem. Pushing the messiness of working together with other humans away from those humans, and coming up with complex steps to type into your terminal window. Ever been in merge hell when your branch and the target branch diverged badly? Ever waited hours or days for a pull request review and had to switch away your focus (losing precious productivity) because of it? I know I have.
Trunk-based development gets rid of complicated branch and commit juggling. It provides a human solution to a human problem. I'll walk you through the benefits and risks of trunk-based development. I'll also give you some handholds on how to start trying it out.
