What would you like to do?


Make an ansychrous workflow that allows the team to collaborate seemlessly, on their terms.


What we had

Git Flow

  • You've probably used to it.
  • Focuses on local branches and workflow.
  • Doesn’t focus on team collaboration, code review, or continuous deployment.


Lots of distrbuted tools like Jira, Pivotal Tracker, Trello, Email.

Information is everywhere. No one has the whole picture. Its hard to collet and stay up to date.

Move to GitHub flow

  • Focuses on team collaboration by heavily leveraging GitHub and its tools.
  • Allows for a highly visible and transparent code base through code reviews.
  • Allows you to constantly deploy

GitHub Flow

Essentially boils down to:


Taking it a step forward:

Consistent git commits

  • feat(folder/file): what you did
  • fix(folder/file): what bug you squashed
  • docs(folder/file): what you learned
  • test(folder/file): things that won’t break

Rebase workflow

rebase1 rebase2


  • Clear linear git history
  • Git history shows a meaningful increment of completed features and functionality.
  • Indispensable on live products since you’ll be able to safely rollback deployed changes if there are bugs.

Release Check lists


Sprint planning via milestones

Issue triage via labels
