Trunk-Based Development: What it is & What you Need to Know?

Trunk-based development is a version control management practice where developers integrate their changes into a single "trunk" or main branch, ensuring continuous integration.

Why is trunk-based development important?

Trunk-based development promotes collaboration, reduces merge conflicts, and enables faster integration and delivery of features by keeping all developers working on the latest codebase.

An easy way to understand trunk-based development is:

Imagine all the developers working on the same main version of the code, rather than creating separate branches. This way, everyone's changes get integrated quickly, and there are fewer conflicts to resolve.

What you Need to Know About Trunk-Based Development

Trunk-based development is a version control management practice where developers work on a single "trunk" or main branch, committing their changes frequently. This approach promotes continuous integration, as changes are merged into the trunk regularly, and any conflicts or issues are resolved quickly.

To succeed with trunk-based development, teams should adopt practices such as small, incremental changes, automated testing, and fast feedback loops. Developers should also communicate effectively and coordinate their work to minimize conflicts and ensure smooth integration of changes.

By adopting a streamlined approach to our service development at Kosme Aesthetics, where all changes are made to a single branch in our operational workflow, we've minimized disruptions and accelerated the deployment of new services.

This method has significantly reduced downtime and increased our ability to quickly respond to market demands.
