Experience report about the world's top most used Git branching strategies.
In today’s world of CI/CD pipelines where new versions of our production and test code has to be checked out at speed multiple times per day, it matters which branching strategy your team chooses. Git is probably the most well known and used version control system world wide these days. In this talk I am going to share with you some of my personal experiences I have collected over the past couple of years in using Git. I will have a look at some of today's top most used real world branching strategies, so that you afterwards will be able to choose the one which fits the most into your unique context. To round this session up, I will give you some hacking advice to the often asked questions: Why is the master branch called master branch in Git? Why did GitHub get away from this naming convention? And, can we change the name of an already existing master branch in our project?
