What is Git?
Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency. Git is easy to learn and has a tiny footprint with lightning fast performance. It outclasses SCM tools like Subversion, CVS, Perforce, and ClearCase with features like cheap local branching, convenient staging areas, and multiple workflows.

Has a good automated deployment process and good scalability options

Pros and Cons

  • "The features I am most impressed by is the automation."
  • "I would like to see an improvement in the way the product owner can review changes."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others would be to implement it correctly and do whatever your unit test brings back in terms of an approach. Fix that first and then start with your coding. That is how you ensure quality. I would say that you should start afresh. Instead of trying the squad branching, do the release branching, and work from there. Don't be wary of actually starting on DevOps. Sometimes people are wary of the unknown but it adds a lot of value if you go with the CDCI approach. It is a great product and my rating is eight out of ten.
