SHAZAM IS EXCITED TO TALK WITH ANDROID DEVELOPERS AT DROIDCON DUBAI

In this talk Savvas Dalkitsis will be discussing advanced git techniques, how you can utilize different branching strategies to achieve a rapid workflow depending on the structure of your team (and demonstrating the branching strategy the Android team uses at Shazam), followed by an assortment of 'hacks', or useful tricks, that allow you to optimize the way you work and share code with others. 

Source control is an integral part of the development process, especially when working in a team. Like any other aspect of software engineering, source control has undergone many iterations, each bringing additional tools and capabilities that make the process of writing software much easier. One of the latest and more advanced iterations is git.  Some of the features that set git apart from other source control systems are: its distributed nature, the inteligent way it handles merges and the ability to rebase commits.  In this talk we will be discussing advanced git techniques, how you can utilize different branching strategies to achieve a rapid workflow depending on the structure of your team (and demonstrating the branching strategy the Android team uses at Shazam), followed by an assortment of 'hacks', or useful tricks, that allow you to optimize the way you work and share code with others. 

Savvas Dalkitsis is very excited to be presenting this talk for the first time in Droidcon Dubai. I'm very keen to meet the local developer community and get some exposure to the amazing things that are being built outside the European market. I am also thrilled to be visiting Dubai for the first time on a personal level and see the incredible architecture and other sights the city has to offer.
