Building Enterprise Software on GitHub

A session at USENIX Release Engineering Summit (URES ‘14)

  • Andrew Thompson

Friday 20th June, 2014

2:15pm to 3:00pm (EST)

At Basho, we develop and package Riak, a distributed key-value store, and Riak CS, an S3-API compatible object store. Many large companies rely on Riak and Riak CS as a critical part of their infrastructure, which means that any packaging or release mistakes are costly and disruptive. This talk describes how we build reliable software on the Github platform, using both the tools and API that Github provides, as well as home-grown tools we’ve made to augment GitHub for working with multiple repositories that, together, form our releases. Our tools help address areas such as issue tracking, unit and integration testing, and automatic build results triggering automatic branch merging.
