Make For Non-C Programmers
Presented by: Eric Smith
GNU Make is a robust, proven, and free tool that's been available for decades for automating virtually any task imaginable. Yet it's rarely used by non-C programmers, because its documentation was written for...C programmers.
In this talk we'll approach Make from a beginner's point of view, and demonstrate how it can be used to easily automate tasks from CI to monitoring, covering a ton of the poorly documented "gotcha's" along the way. After this talk you'll finally be able to use one of the most ubiquitous tools in the software engineering field, rather than writing yet another automation solution.
