Homebrew: A Packagers Deep Dive
11-09, 17:00–17:20 (UTC), Room 2

A deep-dive on the interesting (both good and bad) aspects of the Homebrew package manager that will be interesting to other package manager maintainers or enthusiasts.

Based on my experience as a user (and very sporadic packager) of other OS system and language package managers I'll detail the things I feel that Homebrew does well, badly and what we plan on changing and what we cannot.

Mike McQuaid is the Project Leader and maintainer for over a decade of the Homebrew macOS (and Linux) packager manager. For work, Mike is at Staff Engineer at GitHub on the Communities team.
