Surviving Dependency Hell - Dependency conflicts come in many different forms and have different impacts on your applications. This presentation examines common causes of a dependency conflict, how you can mitigate it as a library developer, and how end users can resolve it. Join this session to see common issues Ray has observed from working with customers, and Robert’s advise on how to detect issues early. It also covers what Google has been documenting in terms of best practices and what tools it has created to help, based on its learnings.

Since then he has been one of the most active committers on the project and has been the chairman for the last 3 years. On behalf of the Maven team, he was a member of the expert group of JSR-376, better known as Project Jigsaw and has done most of the work to make Maven work properly with the Java Platform Modular System.
Robert has spoken on several well-known Java conferences to talk about the faced challenges. In 2017 Robert started his own company called Sourcegrounds, which focuses on support for continuous integration related topics with an important role for both Maven and Java.
