p. Chariot and Sonatype present – Futures: Extending Your Apache Maven-Based Infrastructure

p. Tuesday, September 25, 2012 – 8:30AM-10:30AM

p. Join us for our Breakfast Meetup Tuesday, September 25 from 8:30am-10:30am, in Philadelphia. Jason van Zyl, Sonatype CTO & Founder and Joel Confino, Chariot Solutions Senior Consultant will be giving informal talks on the next phase of Apache Maven-based development and component lifecycle management.

p. For most of its history, software was written – applications consisted primarily of custom developed code and internally developed components with only a very small fraction of code coming from outside the organization. Attend this talk to learn practical tips for optimizing agile, component-based software development efforts. You’ll find practical tips and new tools to reduce risk and improve software quality using Apache Maven and other build tools with Nexus, Hudson or Jenkins.

p. We’ve booked a space at The Hub Cira Centre (2929 Arch Street), but space is limited to 30 guests. If you are in the Philadelphia area and are interested in attending, please register and our events coordinator Emily Blades, will save you a space and send you more details.
