  • Project mention: Understanding Dependencies in Programming | | 2024-04-14

    Dependency Management in Other Languages: We've discussed Python and Node.js in this article, but dependency management is a universal concept in programming. Exploring how you handle dependencies in other languages like Java, C#, or Rust could be beneficial. (I think Rust's cargo is an excellent example of a package manager.)

    You should combine step 1 and 2 with CI. Just tag a version in your git, push to remote and have CI auto build a release for you.

    Use github actions or other setup for other backends.

    Or go nuts with cargo-release.
