Remove the Pains of Package & Environment Management

Webinar - Make Open Source Suck Less in 2024

If you haven’t experienced dependency conflicts, corrupted environments and “works on my machine” issues, you’re probably doing something wrong. Or else working around your ecosystem’s best practices. If you’re frustrated and/or confused by the status quo, or concerned about secure environments in your organization, you’re not alone. But there is something you can do about it.

In this webinar, we’ll explain how standard open source package and environment management tools (like pip and venv for Python) fail at key tasks like reproducibility and dependency management, and discuss how you can eliminate these distractions so you and your team can focus on coding quicker and safer.

Whether you’re a frustrated veteran, confused newbie, or security conscious leader, you can benefit from our discussion, which will highlight:

  • How to juggle multiple virtual environments without the overhead
  • How to manage dependencies without swearing
  • The security implications of inconsistent environments when it comes to software supply chain attacks
  • How to create reproducible environments across your entire team, no matter which OS they work with
  • Technical Demo: Using Python as an example, we’ll show how your team can take the pain and guesswork out of managing your project’s dependencies and environments.

Whether you’re working with Python, Perl, or other open source languages, learn how you can get out of “dependency hell” and empower developers with secure, shareable environments at scale.
