Are you handling client communication with email, updating your clients’ sites with FTP, making manual backups when you think of it, and crossing your fingers that everything gets done and nothing breaks? I’ve been there, and I’m here to tell you: it doesn’t have to be that way. In this talk, you’ll learn how to incorporate the git version control system and a ticketing system into your workflow to bring sanity and peace of mind to your development process, and why you don’t want to work on any collaborative project without them.

Specifically, you'll learn how to:

  • track client requests in a ticketing system
  • store step-by-step snapshots of your work
  • streamline the process of deploying new code to a server
  • rapidly roll back bad code
  • identify the change that made your code break
  • work on experimental changes without breaking your stable code
