Managing dependencies is more than running "composer update"

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.

Who are you?

Great real-world examples illustrating the importance of properly managing dependencies (and thus, managing risk) in your technology stack.

Nils covered a lot. The talk was structured really well and gave useful examples. It did a great job of picking up on things that developers like myself hadn't considered or may have missed. Really beneficial and clearly explained. Thanks Nils

I really liked the idea of managing risk and I've learned a lot more about being careful when it comes to dependency management. We often take these kinds of things for granted, but we probably shouldn't! Thanks Nils.

Nice approach to showing the importance of version and update management, and how to fix composer lockfile update conflicts. Good job!

I really enjoyed this talk - it gave me loads to think about when using both composer packages, and making use of other kinds of dependencies too

If only managing dependencies WAS just about doing a "composer update"!

Nils touched on the multiple aspects that developers should consider, covering the risks and how to minimise them. Well presented and engaging.

Really well structured talk covering key areas of risk and approaches to reducing this in relation to managing dependencies. Learnt a few new composer commands too, well worth attending!

Good to mention the risks and how to manage them. Some developers are all too keen to require a package without checking how actively it's developed, what license (if any it has), etc.

Good talk on things to consider around composer outside of the commands.
