Git and project dependencies

I'm speaking at RoadTrip 2014 Learn More »

Consider the following questions: How do you handle project dependencies with git? Our project is made up of multiple inter-dependent repositories. Currently we manage those with svn:externals. What's the best way to handle those with git? How do you split a very big repository in smaller components using git? These are some examples of the most asked questions we got at the European leg of our recent Getting Git Right tour. The topic appears to be a big pain point for many software

FishEye/Crucible 3.4: Fullscreen mode, Stash integration

I'm speaking at RoadTrip 2014 Learn More »

Software development is a fast-moving industry and we can see today that a lot of companies are doing a transition from traditional VCS like Subversion to Git. It's to support that effort that we've developed Stash, our Git development platform for teams, at Atlassian. With FishEye/Crucible 3.4, we improved the integration with that platform as well as the Git indexing performance to help people who have mixed environments. But that's not all! We implemented a stalking header to focus on the content

For many teams, some of the most pressing development questions can be addressed with a proper workflow: Are all the features completed for the next release? Are we missing any commits? Has everybody reviewed the new code? Does every team member know

The essence of branch-based workflows

Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of speaking at the Jazoon conference in Switzerland about Git workflows. One particular piece that seemed to resonate well with the audience was the idea of looking at the underlying rules when it comes to branch based workflows. Workflows A workflow defines steps that represent how your team agrees to get code into production. The workflow being used needs to support a number of different use cases. How do I fix a bug in an old release, how can I make a hotfix
