    One thing that’s very interesting is there’s some work on “no code” build systems, where you merely give it a small text file of commands you ran locally on your computer and it traces the entire state of your computer to the best of its abilities in order to derive the optimal build graph for your program rather than requiring you to explicitly build it. I suspect it won’t scale for anything complex, but considering that there’s an absolutely huge amount of code out there that does trivial stuff badly, there’s a lot of potential in this idea. Pareto Principle and all that. 80% of the bugs with 20% of the effort. wewlad. we #webscale now.
