Focus time is a precious commodity, especially for developers. What if you could reduce build and test cycles from hours to minutes, and get time back in your diary. Here’s how we did just that using Bazel and Clojure.
Where can we find more time to focus on the work that matters? At Griffin, this question is ingrained in our culture. The technology we use and how we use it plays a crucial role in helping us claw back precious time to focus on building an API-first bank. Bazel’s mechanics have helped us work more efficiently by pinpointing what we need to test and what we don’t need to test.
However, there were some challenges in using Bazel with our programming language, Clojure. I set my mind to extending Bazel so it could support our engineering needs, and as a result, we are now able to use these technologies together to reduce unnecessary distractions.
In this session, I will share my learnings with the Bazel community, including:
- How I got to grips with what makes Bazel tick.
- How I approached extending Bazel to work in harmony with Clojure.
- Tips and tricks developers need to do this themselves.
- Some sneaky shortcuts to success I learned along the way.
