Complexity Without Chaos: Trunk Based Development at Cisco CX

Creating and launching software is a complex process that involves a lot of moving parts, especially in the large project. The good news is that complex need not mean complicated. Simplicity is the key, the simpler the thing is, the easier it is for different groups to understand.
Trunk based development is one of those simpler systems, allowing you to move faster, with greater safety and fewer complications. Paired with feature flags for control, Trunk-based development has allowed our teams at Cisco CX to move from over a thousand feature branches to less than a handful.

Join Cisco Principal Architect Alex Okrushko and Split Director of Engineering Trishala Pavagada as they explore how “TrunkDev” works and why this practice should be on your short list of core initiatives going forward.
