Git with the Flow: lessons learned from adopting Gitflow one step at a timeBill Schneider

Source control is an unglamorous but important part to an effective agile team. Distributed SCM like Git is (still!) new and unfamiliar territory for some teams, yet it can be the gateway to new modes of collaboration and workflow.
At this talk I will share my experience of adopting Git, and Stash, on my teams, one small step at a time. As the teams got comfortable and built up their confidence, they made their way from a centralized Subversion-like workflow, to full-blown Gitflow, in just a few months.
So why does a talk about SCM belong at an Agile conference? The answer is: this is not about a particular SCM tool. It's about people, collaboration and the learning process. It's about how SCM tools enabled us to work together as a team more effectively, with better transparency and discipline.
