Git Branching For Success and Profit

Lorna Jane Mitchell

Lorna Jane Mitchell

Git is not so new, and with adoption growing all the time, most developers have a good handle on how to get through their day-to-day work. Are they making the best use of the tools, though? This session is an in-depth examination of branching, merging and rebasing; we'll cover not only what the technical aspects are and which commands to type, but perhaps more importantly when and why to choose one approach over another. Expect lots of code examples, big concepts, and little git tips as we go along!

Get Hooked on Git 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.
