git standup

Written on April 21, 2017

Every work day, I have a standup meeting with folks on my team via a conference call. The standup usually consists of sharing what you worked on the day before and what you’ll be working on the current day. You also share about anything you might be stuck on.

As a developer, I’m usually scrambling a few minutes before the call to come up with a list of things to share. This usually consists of looking over a JIRA board for changes within the past 24 hours and looking over my git history using gitup.

Today I discovered a tool called, git standup and what it does is adds a standup option to git and shows your commits made within the last working day. This is nice because it filters out commits made by others and only shows your own. Helpful and saves me some time :smile:
