Expect More Nuances

Ship / Show / Ask — Rouan Wilsenach | Martin Fowler:

When talking about patterns for managing source code branches, I used to think as a team, we can either be a “Continuous Integration team” (good) or a “Pull Request Team” (evil).

After reading this great article written by Rouan Wilsenach, I realized there are more nuances in that (or in life frankly), and we don’t have to pick any side. He also went ahead and suggest this Ship/Show/Ask model for anyone to use for communication with our teammates, see where we are at, and working on ways to improve (if needed).

My teams are “Mostly Asking” teams. I will try to nudge ourselves to “Showing more”. I hope to document my experience doing that here as well.
