Microsoft is open-sourcing .NET and creating the CLR for Mac and Linux .Net core5 is the new framework for 5, you can ship your own version of the app.
There is now a free version of Visual Studio — Visual Studio Community for open source developers and students. In fact, it is all happening out in the open on github.
Emma Jane is a long time listener of ADO! She has been teaching version control for many years with specific emphasis on the communication behind version control in teams. She has since switched to distributed version control such as git. Her aim in her teachings is to create resources that make git ”less painful” than it currently is.
Matt: Many people hold the theory that you cannot have “The DevOps” without distributed version control. It implies communication through teams, so what is the validity of that statement.
All kinds of people are interested in learning git. But mainly:
In order to identify how your team will most efficiently use git, draw out your team flow and identify where efficiency is being blocked. Is re-basing causing problems? Is a PR sitting out there for too long? Use those as discussion points with your coworkers.
You cannot introduce creativity when you are just told to memorize commands.
Emma Jane: - Use Interactive Add! It allows you to split up your diffs into different commits. So you don’t end up committing a huge chunk of features that should most-definitely not be committed together.
Look for the right git-flow based on the type of deployments you are going to be using to release the software. Are your deployments feature based? or time based? How important is a rollback?
Your code should always be deployable in a CD framework. You are only rolling forward, you have one master branch, and feature branches, how can you have correct and fast CD if you have multiple branches before the CD process starts.
Your git setup should be directly related to your infrastructure. The git releases and flows of a team of 1 is going to be massively different than the git flow of a large team for a Could Provider.
