PHPAmersfoort September 2022

Needs a location

As developers we do a lot of coding, but besides coding we also deal with a lot of process. Erik has experienced both sides of this coin closely and is here to share his knowledge!

SF Experience (the company Erik works for) has also been kind enough to make their location available, let's experience it together :-)

Schedule
19:00 - Welcome
19:30 - Being an Agile Developer is about Taking Control - Erik Bos

Being an Agile Developer is about Taking Control
Having worked 15 years as a PHP programmer, and with another 10 years of experience as a Scrum Master, Erik has some idea of what Agile really entails for us developers. In this talk, he will discuss:
- what is the essence of Agile?
- why does motivation play such an essential part in it?
- why flow, in its various forms, is the ultimate goal we are striving for?

What do you call it when an elephpant codes a feature...? *giggles* Trunk- *giggle* Trunk-based development! HAH! GET IT? TRUNK! *wipes tear*

We're very happy to welcome another ex-founder of PHPAmersfoort to the stage, Jelrik! He will be telling us all about *giggle* *ahem* sorry, all about trunk-based development! So come join us :-)

Trunk-based development
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.
