Overview: Rather than working within a single monolithic development branch for the entire product team, you are now able to support small team collaboration within feature branches. This talk will cover the improvements the Bungie team made to their build and data caching infrastructure to support the scale of this development paradigm. Additionally, the talk will go over the technology that they built to support semantic content merging and interactively address content related conflicts. Lastly, the talk will dive into the pipeline that they built to automatically merge the changes around their branch ecosystem and provide developers a means for dealing with conflicts and functional failures on an automatically pre-staged machine.
