Git-Flow – Updates – Ideas

March 14, 2011 1 comment

As some of you that follow me may have seen, I’ve been quiet in the last week.  This is/was for good reason.  I’ve been a bit busy doing quite a number of things including writing more articles, some of which are more around the grey areas in development like Architecture, Methodologies of Development, Design Practices and so on.  I’ve also been busy trying to get my Code Project articles completed, which I’m hoping to publish very soon.  It’s been a bit strange putting these together and even though I’m going to take a while to publish all of them, they did get me to read a lot about various things and they also got me thinking about things that I’ve always done and re-evaluating those principles that I have and that most of us developers like to talk about.

So, hopefully I’ll get those done and hopefully they will get people talking a bit and I may even have some of you challenge my thoughts on some of the concepts that I’ll put out there, even though there won’t be too many new things.  The idea is to start having the discussions in an open platform where everyone is on the same foot and all the different paths can be explored in an honest manner.  Anyway, I’m not going to go too much into it right now… 🙂  Just know that it will be coming in the next month or so and it should be interesting to hear what some of you say…

In the meanwhile I’ve just finished my article on Git-Flow called “Getting Started – Git-Flow” and I hope you’ll enjoy it.  Git-Flow is a very interesting concept that builds on the powers that Git gives you, even though it can be implemented on just about any and every other Version Control System there is.  So, if you were looking for a good Branching Strategy or a good process to implement for when your company/team is doing development, try it and give me some feedback to say where I can help you adopt it or where my explanations are lacking a bit. 

In the meanwhile, I’m going to continue writing those other articles which will hopefully take me a bit more into the code and a bit less into the environmental things that makes our lives easier by giving business the visibility they need.

Have fun!!!! 🙂
