Scaling Git for the Enterprise

Due to its ease of use and distributed repository infrastructure, Git is quickly becoming the version control system of choice for many. Getting started takes only a few minutes, and available online tutorials explain Git basics and more advanced features including branching. As easy as Git is to implement, many developers find Git challenging to scale for large enterprises. Some go to Cloud-based Git service providers; others implement tools such as Stash and gitflow for effective branching patterns and variant management. Integrating Git with other tools including workflow automation, continuous integration, and continuous delivery all come with their own challenges. Bob Aiello “gits” you started with understanding how to implement and maintain a flexible and scalable Git infrastructure that can support your agile development efforts including continuous delivery and DevOps. Git is a great tool, and scaling Git for the enterprise is very doable—if you implement the right tools and processes.
