Strange Loop

Building a Distributed Build System at Google Scale

It's hard to imagine a modern developer workflow without a sufficiently advanced build system: Make, Gradle, Maven, Rake, and many others. In this talk, we'll discuss the evolution of build systems that leads to distributed build systems. Then, we'll dive into how we can build a scalable system that is fast and resilient, with examples from Google. We'll conclude with the discussion of general challenges of migrating systems from one architecture to another.
