Choose the Right Git Branching Strategy

Net Magazine, April 2015

net_z1_z1(3) (1)Writing for netmag is always fun, and this time was no exception. I often work with teams of various disciplines to identify and implement the right branching strategy for them so it was good to generalise some of those ideas and share. Also: netmag is gorgeous and it's so much fun to be in physical print! I even showed my parents :)

This was edition 267, June 2015.
