35 minutes + Q&A
As a developer, you just want your builds to work but every now and then things go wrong and you need to investigate the build. That investigation sucks up a lot of your time and forces context switching. In this talk we show how build scans can help save a lot of time when you need to find build performance bottlenecks, investigate/troubleshoot CI and build/tool chain failures, visualize your dependencies, etc. to troubleshoot/investigate build issues and accelerate your builds/tests.
From this session you will learn…
- Can I make my build faster? Build performance profiling with a simple UI: what are all the performance bottlenecks in my build, how well is my build cache working, the impact of heap, garbage, dependency downloads on my build times.
- How well is my build parallelized? Can I get more parallelization to speed up my builds?
- What’s happening in my build? View the build timeline view to see what tasks/goals are being executed in which order. You can use this to see how well parallelized is your build
- Git and CI integration for better developer workflow
- Go from your CI job to your build scan and back
- Go to the Git source repo, git commit id, show me all the builds on this git commit id
- Troubleshoot CI failures way faster with a build scan by viewing failed tasks/goal in consol log.
- Build scans pull out all the details pertaining to your failure out of the consol log so you don’t have to parse through thousands of lines of logs
- Dependency Search: view, search through your projects dependencies and their versions in a few clicks
- Triage Test failures faster: The test dashboard sorts your projects test failures by failure count with a nice UI. With a few clicks you can see which test classes failed the most, sort by your longest tests, test methods with the most test failures, link to your test report
- Tool chain and build related failures: What’s breaking my build?
