The Curious case of the Monorepo
Submitted by Andrew Bestbier (@andrewbestbier) on Wednesday, 11 April 2018
I currently work as a digital consultant in London while doing my part-time MSc at the University of Oxford in Software Engineering. I mainly work with large organisations that are undergoing large digital transformations. These companies are now primarily using monorepos and I thought I would introduce the idea at the conference. In particular my talk will be structured as follows:
Advantages/Disadvantages from both a high level and code level (an example would be sharing of React components)
How projects are built, CI and dependency management
How to manage the project from a human perspective - PRs, admin
Lessons learned from using Monorepos for digital transformations
I have given this talk a few times in London and it has been very well received. I also recently gave this talk at a developer conference in South Africa.
