With Agile methods making their way into the mainstream and distributed version control systems (DVCS) like Git becoming increasingly popular, we are resurfacing some questions that were put to rest years ago. Suddenly, with the increased power and flexibility of DVCS we have a number of seemingly viable alternatives for an Agile team to integrate their work within and between teams. This presentation will discuss the relative benefits of a number of parallel development strategies such as private branches, trunk development and feature branches as well as how do these approaches fit in with the related practice of continuous integration.
