Liberate yourself from the monolithic build! By Mark Galpin, Senior Product Manager, JFrog
While automated build platforms for C/C++ applications is something we have been doing for years, for many people the toolset feels limited compared to what you can do with other applications. C and C++ development teams often find themselves unable to leverage more modern concepts in software delivery like dependency management, continuous integration, promotion pipelines, etc. which in turn make DevOps practices elusive. There has to be a better way.
In this talk we will discuss how to liberate yourself from a monolithic build with the power of Conan, an OSS (MIT-Licensed) package manager designed for C/C++. We will show the basics of how and why to use Conan and show how you can use Conan to drastically reduce build times, as part of true CI workflows.
