It isn't new, and it isn't sexy but Trunk Based Development is key to delivering value at the ever increasing rate that customers demand.

The basics are simple: Distance (from master) is dangerous. Never break the build. Release behind a feature toggle

In reality very few, if any of us follow these practices perfectly. We will talk about some common scenarios when it makes sense to bend the rules. We will also talk about the scenarios that do not justify breaking the rules. Every company and code base is unique and each has different factors that contribute to picking a branching strategy but the trade-offs for breaking the rules are universal. We will talk about them.

After this presentation you will be better able to look at different branching strategies and understand the trade-offs being made. With this knowledge you can then determine if your project is using version control in the most effective way to help you realize the goals of your project. [166]
