network throughout Alaska, the Lower 48, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico. Known for
embracing innovative technology to improve the customer experience, Alaska
Airlines has won numerous awards for its frequent flyer program and eCommerce
For years, Alaska Air used a file-based branch and label SCM tool that
required a lot of manual processes to prepare source code for deployment. The
processes worked but were time-consuming and were unable to support the
company's plans to move to Agile. Alaska Air conducted a thorough assessment
as it evaluated 18 SCM tools, six of which were brought in for more extensive
demos, and two finalists were invited in for pilot programs, one of which was

Are you frequently called on to perform the daunting task of ‘the merge’?
Does tension mount and do groans grow louder when it’s time for a merge?
Are only a select few are willing to stand up and do the work?
Maybe these stages describe your merge process:
Denial: It’s never going to work (in a timely manner). Anger: Why do I have
to do the merge? Bargaining: I’ll work on maintenance and support if I
don’t have to do the merge. Depression: How many compiler errors? Why
won’t the jsp work with firefox? Acceptance: Not really, it’s compiling
and (mostly) passing tests.
Before we try to get you through the 5 stages of merge, let’s a take a look

Git is increasing in popularity among developers working in small groups or
collaborating on open source projects. It’s fast, flexible, and full of
developer-friendly features. Git is a great tool for these smaller and more
social types of development projects, and based on discussions about Git with
customers, prospects, and analysts, it’s clear that there are more cas... (more)
