For February's talks we are delighted to be joined by Leszek Silwko who will be presenting on release processes and Chris Birchall who will be talking about writing sbt plugins. Here are their abstracts:

*Leszek Silwko: Drone Delivery Queue*

The presentation is about release/build process we setup in my team. The novelty here was to integrate the images building as a result of a story (i.e. not the code changes). Then the images are moved through environments – such a process guarantees the release on prod is exactly the same system as that which has been seen and approved by business. As an interesting note, we use Open Source tools released by UK Home Office.

*Chris Birchall: Writing an sbt plugin*

First I'd like to introduce sbt-explicit-dependencies, an sbt plugin I made recently. I'll explain what it does, why you should consider using it, and how it works under the hood. In the second half of the talk I'll give a beginner's guide to writing an sbt plugin, including how to test plugins, how to distribute them for public consumption and how to cross-build for sbt 0.13.x and 1.x.

Pizza and drinks will be sponsored by District4 https://district4.io/
