Git Scales for Monorepos with Derrick Stolee

In a version control system, a Monorepo is a version control management strategy in which all your code is contained in one potentially large but complete repository.  The monorepo is in stark contrast to an alternative approach in which software teams independently manage microservices or deliver software as libraries to be imported in other projects.  The monorepo strategy has been followed by noteworthy companies such as Google, Facebook, and Microsoft.

Derrick Stolee is a software engineer working at GitHub.  He joins us today to talk about strategies for monorepos and innovations to the way git works in order to better support this style of the repository.

Today’s episode of Software Engineering Daily is sponsored by DevOps Loop at VMworld. DevOps in the age of Kubernetes is about more than shiny bells and whistles. It’s also about building on the skills you already have. And that’s exactly what’s on tap at this year’s DevOps Loop at VMworld, October 4th. Join your friends from the community for a full day of talks focused on how to apply core DevOps principles in the world of modern apps, multi-cloud, and Kubernetes. It’s all online, it doesn’t cost a thing, and it won’t be the same without you. See the full agenda and speaker lineup for yourself at softwareengineeringdaily.com/devopsloop.

What if you could mimic your entire production database to create a realistic dataset with zero sensitive data? Tonic.ai does exactly that. With Tonic, you can generate fake data that looks, acts, and behaves like production because it’s made from production. How does Tonic do it? Connect to any database, anywhere, and have Tonic automatically de-identify and mask your data to create the perfect test dataset. Sleep better at night knowing that if your test data is compromised, your sensitive data can’t be reverse-engineered. And everyone has the data they need to focus on what they do best: building features without the security risk. Visit softwareengineeringdaily.com/tonic to sign up for a free trial.
