Get Hooked on Git Hooks

A session at MidwestPHP Conference 2013

Saturday 2nd March, 2013

10:30am to 11:20am (CST)

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 poor man’s continuous integration system using git hooks and some scripts. 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.
