Git for Organisations

Git for Organisations

Course Level: Intermediate (6 hours)

Git is perfect for working collaboratively. However, when you’re working together in an organisation, it’s important to have rules and processes so you all know how to work together. We’ll share what works for us at Jumping Rivers, and then guide you through the process of coming up with your own rules and processes for git, such as choosing a branching strategy and formalising your code review.
