  • Philips Respironics 4420 Bayard Street Pittsburgh, PA, 15213 United States (map)

Developers rarely consider build performance an issue of concern until their builds have already passed the threshold of what they consider to be optimal build times and at that point its often a large undertaking to remedy. With today's complex front end application builds consisting of running unit tests, typescript and sass compilation, bundling modules and many other steps, what is the solution for attaining fast yet consistent builds? With Angular 8 comes the bazel opt-in preview which allows for incremental builds, only rebuilding and testing the code in our application that has changed since the previous commit. In this meetup we will look into how to set up a project using bazel and the advantages that come with it.
