    David Needham: Find that bug you made months ago with Git Bisect

    WordCamp Europe 2019Speaker: David Needham

    December 30, 2019 — You made a mistake months ago, and a part of the site is broken. No one noticed at first, but now the client is upset, so you need to fix it…and fast! But where in the code was this bug introduced? What if David told you there’s a tool hidden within Git to quickly find when a bug was committed and then fix it? Git Bisect allows you to comb through dozens of commits at once and find the culprit in seconds, even when you don’t know when it happened or what file was edited. Once you understand the basics, David will take it a step further with automation.

  • Bernhard Kau: Automated deployments for plugins with GitHub Actions

    Bernhard Kau: Automated deployments for plugins with GitHub Actions

    WordCamp Stuttgart 2019Speaker: Bernhard Kau

    November 11, 2019 — Plugin development is fun! But deploying a new version of a plugin to the WordPress.org Plugin Directory using SVN is a pain! We usually develop plugins using Git, hosting the code on GitHub. But up until this year, deploying those plugins to the plugin directory was a rather hard manual task.

    Now with the new GitHub actions becoming available for all repositories, we can utilize pre-defined automated tasks to deploy a new version of a plugin. It’s even possible to just update the readme file, which is even more complicated in the current Subversion environment.

    This talk will show you, how you can use GitHub actions to make your life as a plugin developer a lot easier and bringing back the fun to develop plugins.

  • David Remer: Understanding git

    David Remer: Understanding git

    WordCamp Stuttgart 2019Speaker: David Remer

    November 11, 2019 — When you start collaborating on open source projects or in development teams, Git is a tool you can’t evade. Even WordPress development shifts more and more towards Git.

    Git is a powerful version control system, but even for advanced users it is often quite intimidating. Understanding some of the principals on which Git operates helps a long way in mastering this tool.

    After a quick introduction into Git I will examine those principals. Along the way, we will try to recover code, which we thought was lost forever. The aim of this presentation is to gain a better understanding of Git so beginners feeling more comfortable to contribute to open source projects.

    WordCamp para desarrolladores Sevilla 2019Speaker: Juan J. Merelo Guervós

    November 8, 2019 — Git es mucho más que una simple herramienta para controlar fuentes, para convertirse en una forma de gestionar grupos de trabajo y de montar entornos de desarrollo amigables y que sigan una serie de pautas. En esta charla hablaremos de la fontanería de git, cómo se puede usar para implementar políticas de desarrollo, y cómo se puede mirar a los logs para mejorar el código o simplemente entender cómo funciona un equipo de desarrollo, sobre todo si se trata de software libre.
