Hey all, thanks to those who coached today and @barisbalic for hosting us. I wonder if there is anything I/we can do to get the chat going here. Do you feel that a more private channel would be better? Also, it would be great if you can encourage the people you are coaching to join the channel.

Is there a reason for separate gh-pages/master branches?

@BRMatt not really, i've been meaning to kill master but never got around to doing it. Are you volunteering?

@barisbalic just trying to figure out a good deployment strategy. whether to tag when pushing to UAT or tag when pushing to production
using gitchangelog to create changelog files to send off to management
Baris Balic

We tag when pushing to production
Your management wants to see changelogs?
Sorry I read 'diffs' when you said changelogs, do you mean actual changelogs?

it woud be good to send some kind of a release document when we push to live, so they see whats going on
with gitchangelog u can make changelogs that are aimed at management/testers/developers etc
and just tag the commit messages properly when you commit changes
and it also takes care of putting a version number on top based on the version tag

Might be a nice practice but I think if management here were concerned with that level of detail I'd be an unhappy developer.

i feel happier to keep them in the loop instead of in complete darkness
they know i am doing something and their money is being used well

I didn't say you should keep them in the dark either, but this would be more of a debate, I think this channel is more for the tutorials/support of codebar

@developerinlondon I'm not sure this is the right place for this questions. codebar is beginners friend, about helping people new to programming. I'm not sure if someone can suggest a better place for continuing this discussion maybe?
