You've used Composer so many times now, but how deep is your understanding of your dependencies? Can you get yourself out of every tricky situation?
This talk will cover a broad range of dependency management subjects: From assessing the risk, e.g. through BC breaks, introduced into your business critical code by third party software, all the way to hand-on tips for working with composer in the real world, e.g. what to do if composer.lock conflicts during a merge, when your colleagues and you modified dependencies in different ways.

Great talk! Complex topics were illustrated using the most bare-bone and to the point examples. Enjoyed it!

Didn't meet my expectations, I was looking forward to problems faced by programmers and technical solutions to them. Solutions to problems like different s/w requiring different versions of a library/application. IMO, the presentation was more focused on dos and don'ts functionally

It was a interesting talk about dependencies but more a do's and don't i was hoping to get more information about managing large amounts of deps and maybe some tools that can help you monitor that.

Good talk, well delivered. I think we take a lot of the dependencies we use for granted, and getting some large scale screwups from other languages should make people rethink their strategy.

I do agree with some of the other comments in that I expected a little more "help" when it comes to actual problems that can occur (like solving version dependency mismatches or the ability to use your own fork while you're waiting for a package maintainer to merge your PR). Still a very recommended talk.

Clear and interesting talk about choosing dependencies, whether or not to update them, what to look out for, and some background and tips for working with composer.

I also would have loved some more specific use-cases/problems/tips about the use of composer.

Great talk about actual real examples on how to fix conflicts and what to look for when choosing dependencies. little disappointed about the solution of just forking repositories.

@Dragem Forking repositories wasn't my solution, I said some people do that. I would recommend a private Composer repository, e.g. Private Packagist for that purpose.

Hi Nils,

Great talk. Very non-technical approach to managing dependencies!
Would you be so kind to make the slides available? =>

Greetings, Marc
