Writing software is an absolute joy. Getting software to build is a chore. Thus, build systems emerged as a solution to automate this chore. At some point software engineers either use or hear legends about make and makefiles. While perhaps being the historically known tool, a great deal of thought has gone into approaches to build systems since 1976 when make was introduced.

In today’s episode, we focus on a build system called Pants.  Pants is a scalable, software build system.  It can help you support all the modern challenges of a build system such as dependency resolution, testing, linting, and packaging.  In this episode, I interview Benjy Weinberger, co-founder at Toolchain and contributor to the open source project Pants.
