Get your PRs merged, rebasing like a Pro

Daniel Magliola says:

You have a complex PR to submit. You've tried to keep it small, but sadly you need to make many different changes all at once. Getting there took a lot of effort and your branch has more than 30 commits with fixes and reverting of dead ends.

You know reviewing this will be a nightmare for your colleagues, and more importantly, it will be almost impossible for someone in the future to understand what happened if they ever look at the history.

In this talk we will look at how Git branches work, and how to manicure them using Rebase to build a commit history your colleagues will love you for.

The messy middle – 5 Software Engineering lessons from a 5 years startup journey

Alfredo Motta says:

These are some of the lessons that I have learned over my 5 years at a Fintech startup that went from 0 to 100k customers and grew the team from 4 to 50 people. I will present some of the software architecture tradeoffs I have been presented with and I am still puzzled about today.

When the talks come to an end we can't quite replicate the convivial atmosphere of hanging out in a local pub with your fellow attendees, but we do leave the zoom call running to let those interested chat for a while. If you have some ideas about an alternative approach, then let us know at organisers@lrug.org.


Prior to attending you should familiarise yourself with our README paying close attention to the code of conduct which applies to all attendees, even though we are all in our own little bubbles.

Secure your place

Even in a virtual world there are limited places for attending the meeting so you need to register via eventbrite. The link to the zoom meeting will only be sent to registered attendees on the day of the meeting, around about 6pm. Keep an eye out for the email and check your spam just in case.

Do prepare yourself in advance by downloading the zoom client.
