Duration: 30 minutes

With 100’s of millions of lines of code running in most large companies and billions of lines of code available in the world of open source, a significant opportunity exists to reuse code written by others in your next application. Sounds easy, but finding the right code and evaluating it for reuse can be a daunting task – one that often causes people to start from scratch.

Join Dave Gruber and Randy DeFauw as they demonstrate how Black Duck and Perforce Version Management can help you discover, track and reuse software components from both your internal code bases and the world of open source.

Learn concrete steps for:

  • Managing open source and internal components
  • Consuming or forking these components in your projects
  • And coming to grips with open source libraries hosted in public Git repositories

Who Should Attend:

  • Anyone looking for a more efficient approach to code reuse
