Trunk Based Development

October 27, 2014 16:11

Are you sick of Merge Hell? Do your feature branches go rogue? Do you spend more time fiddling with your Version Control System than doing actual development work? Then Trunk Based Development might be for you. Facebook does it. Google does it. Instead of messing with multiple branches, just use your master branch. Always. In addition to giving you an overview about how Trunk Based Development works, where it shines and where the pitfalls are, this talk will also cover the necessary techniques to succeed with it, such as Branch By abstraction, Feature Toggles and backwards compatible Database Migrations.
