I’m a passionate web application developer, Ruby enthusiast and (long|snow|wake) boarder. I love travelling, especially to warm countries, which is another reason that I’m exited about Euruko 2013. But most of all I’m looking forward to connecting with Ruby folks from all across Europe to share experiences, learn new stuff and have a good time.
I’m responsible for the web development of Codeship where we’re constantly trying to make our software development more sustainable, efficient and fun. We’ve elaborated a work flow that’s simple and lets us focus on what we really love: Coding Ruby.
This talk is about how we set up a beautiful development process using Ruby, Git and Continuous Integration & Deployment.
Our team deploys new versions of our product 10 times a day or more. That’s because we develop in tiny iterations, building tiny features and release them as soon as possible. Even our designers deploy – without even noticing it. All of us develop their tiny features on their own Git branches. As soon as we are done, we push them to GitHub and let someone code-review what we’ve done. Our Continuous Integration system displays on GitHub if everything works in this feature, so the code-reviewer can securely merge the feature into master. That’s where the process ends already. Continuous Deployment picks up the new version and it is online within minutes.
Although this process is simple, we love it. It just works and it has got plenty of advantages:
Thanks, Nikos. I think I made a list of tools instead of really describing the process. I will post a new version in a bit!
Hey author! This talk looks really promising, but can you give some more examples on how you achieved all this? I'm pretty sure that by just having git, a full test suite and a CI server is not enough...
