Semantic Versioning (SemVer.org) allows you to communicate changes to your software to users through your version numbers. But how do you use it with the GitFlow branching strategy, pull requests or continuous delivery? What about easily creating alpha/beta packages? Do you need a nightly/CI feed? Don't know how all these bits fit together? You want to see this talk then and get a holistic view of what it means to Semantically Version your software.
I will show you what SemVer is, the problems it solves, new ways it can be used (customer facing apps/sites?). I will cover the GitFlow versioning strategy, and the much simpler pull request model. When to use each, and how you can take advantage of conventions in these workflows to make Semantic Versioning an integral and easy part of your workflow from writing to releasing and maintaining your software! This is a practical talk where you are guaranteed to leave with something you can use in your job.
