At this meetup Sam Newman will be re-examining feature branches and toggles.
During the evolution of the ideas behind Continuous Delivery, many of us came to the conclusion that having branches for features was not a good idea, and resulted in some fairly problematic issues. This was contentious at the time, with lots of discussion around whether or not feature toggles or feature branching was the right way forward.
Roll on several years, and through Git and GitHub, branches are everywhere. Is this a problem?
This talk re-examines the role of feature branches and feature toggles, and looks at them in the context of new research and technology to try and distill down some sensible lessons in a post-GitHub, but hopefully not post-factual, world.
Developers, architects or CTOs should all get a lot out of this talk, especially if you like the idea of shipping software more quickly, and avoiding the pain of source control merges.
Sam Newman is an independent consultant specialising in helping people ship software fast. Sam has worked extensively with the cloud, continuous delivery, and microservices and is especially preoccupied with understanding how to more easily deploy working software into production. For the last few years, he has been focusing in the area of microservice architectures. He has worked with a variety of companies in multiple domains around the world, often with one foot in the developer world and another in the IT operations space. Previously, he spent over a decade at ThoughtWorks and then left to join a startup, before setting up his own company. Sam speaks frequently at conferences and is the author of Building Microservices and Monolith to Microservices (O’Reilly).
