Git Ready! Workflows


Published on

How do you choose a git workflow that increases productivity and reduces the friction of your team? What are the battle tested practices of successful teams that moved to git? How is git used inside Atlassian?

As you might have heard git has many compelling features and has gained incredible momentum in the industry at large. Yet understanding how an enterprise team can adopt it can be daunting. The presentation aims to help answer these questions and more:

- Available collaboration models when using a distributed version control system like git
- Branching models that foster and enhance parallel development
- Emerging code best practices and choices that can be safely adopted when migrating to git
- How Continuous Integration changes when your team embraces git

Git Ready! Workflows

  1. 1. Ready! Workflows
  2. 2. Question time at the end Submit your questions
  3. 3. Nicola Paolucci Developer Advocate / Git Evangelist @durdndurdn.comI come out nice in pictures, I know :-).
  4. 4. Cheap local branching Full local history Speed Staging area prominent in Open Source Huge community You heard has Feature based workflow 10x the speed of svn Distributed cryptographic integrity
  5. 5. ground breaking paradigm is ground breaking
  6. 6. Workflow building blocks
  7. 7. 1 Common Practices 2 3 Collaboration model We’ll cover how to choose: Branching model Continuous Integration4
  8. 8. Which collaboration model?1 Easy, right?
  9. 9. Fully decentralized Anarchy I do my thing I do my thing, too ANARCHY here’s mine, who tells john? look ma, a goat!
  10. 10. Blessed repository with Gatekeeper He is cool Gatekeeper To have your work accepted, talk to him
  11. 11. and Lieutenants Dictator long live the King! Lieutenants guard the King Blessed repository
  12. 12. Shared common repository we share “everything” luckily no goats here Centralised
  13. 13. More on Collaboration models
  14. 14. + = Centralized Enterprise
  15. 15. Centralized allows fine grained ACLs Branch & Repo permissions
  16. 16. Integration with your Issue tracking and CI
  17. 17. Which branching model?2
  18. 18. Product Releases1 Continuous Delivery2 Two common Branching Models
  19. 19. for Product Releases2.1
  20. 20. One Central Repository1 One Branch per Feature One Branch per Bugfix 2 3 Time master feature branches PRJ-123-description
  21. 21. One Central Repository1 One Branch per Feature One Branch per Bugfix 2 3 Time master bugfix branch PRJ-123-bug-description
  22. 22. Stable Branches4 master is alpha / RC5 Pull Requests6 Before merges Long running Time master stable branch PRJ-345-bug-description bugfix 2.2
  23. 23. 2.2 for Continuous Delivery
  24. 24. master is in production1 staging is the next version new features off staging 2 3 with branch names like: username/ISSUE-KEY-summary promoted from staging, can receive hot-fixes
  25. 25. Common Practices3 turbo boost!
  26. 26. What is a Pull Request?
  27. 27. Hey I have some code I want to merge here, take a look? Low friction collaboration Pull Request I have some code here! Can I merge it here?
  28. 28. Single Repository vs Remote Forks
  29. 29. Complete visibility1 No per Dev remotes required KISS 2 3 Pros of a Single Repo All feature branches available
  30. 30. Forks Are Great too BTW
  31. 31. Every one has their remote repository With Forks Full remote copy, each has one Integrator, Gatekeeper, Tech Lead, etc.
  32. 32. Manage codebase maturity1 X department and 3rd parties Dev to Dev interactions 2 3 Read “Cross”
  33. 33. Continuous Integration4
  34. 34. What happens to CI with git?1 An explosion of branches2 3 Performance degradation of build sys
  35. 35. Building everything is expensive1 Automatically build stable and master2 3 Manually trigger feature branch builds
  36. 36. Less Friction and Automation5
  37. 37. Code Quality via pre-commit hooks
  38. 38. Branch from green builds
  39. 39. Automatic merges for the win!
  40. 40. Time master stable branch PRJ-345-bug-description bugfix 2.2 stable branch 2.1 Automatic MERGES!
  41. 41. Ripple merges1 Server side update hook2 3 Or tool support

  43. 43. In Conclusion: the recipe
  44. 44. Branching Model Adopt Git Practices Automation & CI setup Conclusions Product workflow Continuous delivery workflow Embrace PR Build automatically, but leave knobs! Single Repo or Forks Collaboration Model Centralized Hooks, hooks everywhere
