GitHub Centric Continuous Deployment

A session at GOTO Copenhagen 2015

Monday 5th October, 2015

11:30am to 12:20pm (CET)

Did you know that GitHub kicks ass?

At Debitoor we have gone from 14 day sprints to Continuous Deployment. We deploy to production ten times a day or more. Git and GitHub has been instrumental in our transformation. Not just GitHub, but the whole ecosystem of 3rd party tools and add-ons that have grown around GitHub. You can rent a complete set of integrated web-based tools for all your teams software development needs.

I will explain our git branching strategy, with only one long lived branch and feature branches. Feature branches are not evil, they are great, if you use them like we do.

I will also be talking about how GitHub and Pull Requests rule our world. Our Continuous Integration automatically runs our test suite on GitHub Pull Requests. We have no need for an AD, we use GitHub auth instead. Our Kanban board has no database, it's just a layer on top of GitHub. Provisioning parallel staging environments is based on GitHub Pull Requests. And our company chat system is just a layer on top of GitHub.

How many times did I just write GitHub? I really like GitHub.
