Overview

Be a part of the first Bazel eXchange conference!

Bazel is a build automation tool originally developed by Google. Since being open-sourced in 2015, a unique community of Bazel enthusiasts has grown around the world.

Bazel is quickly becoming the go-to tool for teams who are looking to reliably speed up their builds and tests.

Bazel eXchange is a new, community-focused conference designed to offer Bazel practitioners a space to learn and share knowledge with one another. Join us to discover why companies like Salesforce, Ticketmaster, Stripe, Twitter, Spotify and more include Bazel in their tech stack.

If you're in London, you're invited to join us at our office's for the Bazel eXchange Watch Party on Day 1 of the conference.
