A conversation about trunk-based development

I talk with Jason Adam about trunk-based development and related topics.

The Tiny DevOps podcast is back!

I’m joined by Jason Adam who is a software developer with a non-traditional background in biology, business development, and data analytics. Now he’s active as a developer, and on the lookout for proven practices he can introduce to his team.
