Living on the bleeding edge: Lessons Learned for Successful Migration to Bazel and Google Cloud Build
As Wix grew exponentially with more than 600 micro-services, it became obvious our previous CI solution for jvm/scala code (Maven + Team city) has been slowing us down.
We decided to switch to Google's open source Bazel build tool and Google Cloud Build. This migration process involved a radical paradigm shift and big challenges in terms of scale and complexity.
By the end of this talk you will know exactly what you need to do in order to have a successful migration to bazel and google cloud build.
You will get insight into important issues you need to address when performing such a drastic move, including: - "should I break down maven/gradle granularity", - “Do I have to have a mono-repo like Google has?”, - “Can I use Jenkins or do I need to use a Google provided CI solution”
and many more.
