Git tags vs branches: Differences and when to use them

Version control systems are valuable tools for tracking and managing changes to software projects. They record every modification to software code and store the complete project history in a database, enabling developers to collaborate, experiment with new features, and roll back changes when necessary. Git is the most widely used version control system today.


Automate GitHub stats reporting with scheduled pipelines

Release notes provide essential documentation when a new software version is released. For release notes to be most effective, dev teams must consolidate all of the work that has been done since the previous release. It is a hectic task that requires a lot of effort and time sorting through weeks or even months of software issues and pull requests. Why not make the life of the release team easier by automating the creation of release notes?


Dealing with Difficult Stakeholders or Clients

Most of the time, working with clients to create, improve, or enhance software is a great experience. You get to put your skills to the test and create unique solutions that improve people’s workflows and quality of life. However, there are occasions when working with a client can get out of control. For example, a client might make a last minute request that derails project timelines and stretches the scope beyond what was agreed on in the beginning.

7 Things You Need to Know About Github's Sponsors-Only Repositories

Open-source software is driving some of the most exciting innovations today. According to The Linux Foundation, open-source constitutes about 70 to 90% of all modern software solutions. But it isn’t all fun and games: open-source software is free, which brings about operational inefficiencies due to a lack of financial support for their developers. Platforms like Switch and SubStack started incentivizing paid subscription models to solve this problem.
