First I'd like to introduce sbt-explicit-dependencies, an sbt plugin I made recently. I'll explain what it does, why you should consider using it, and how it works under the hood. In the second half of the talk I'll give a beginner's guide to writing an sbt plugin, including how to test plugins, how to distribute them for public consumption and how to cross-build for sbt 0.13.x and 1.x.
