As developers we not only operate in different contexts, but also often have these different contexts interplay as part of our work. Each of the tools that we use — version control systems like Git (along with collaborative tools like Github/Gitlab), IDE's like Eclipse/IntelliJ, build systems like Gradle, Ci/Cd tooling like Jenkins, IaaC tools like Ansible, the command line — all introduce context.

To be effective developers we need to know when to operate in a certain context, combine or tease apart how these contexts interplay. Can you improve your release announcements if format your commit messages consistently? You bet! How should your build tool interact with your version control system? What does naming your files have to do with how you use your IDE?

This session will take a look at several of these contexts — it will attempt to discern between them, explore when you should separate them and when you attempt to bring them together.

With lots of examples, and lots of quizzes this session will definitely leave you thinking about a few things.
