Building Scala with Bazel

Session Recording

About this Session

Compilation of very large Scala codebases can be quite slow, Enter Bazel - an open source build tool from Google that allows for very fast build times while maintaining correctness and reproducibility.

In this talk I will share with you the story of how at Wix we have embraced Bazel and managed to dramatically improve our build times.

I will also talk about "Rules Scala" - the Scala plugin for Bazel that has cool features such as "strict deps" and "unused deps" that help keep your build configurations clean and up-to-date.

Required Knowledge

Basic knowledge of build tools such as sbt and basic jvm knowledge such as .class and .jar files.
