Sonatype’s Nexus Repository Manager is built around best practices in package and dependency management in the DevOps space. But what exactly do we mean when we say “package and dependency management,” and how does a binary repository manager fit into this integral part of the software development lifecycle?
The Customer Education team here at Sonatype is excited to launch a guide in the Educational Foundations area of guides.sonatype.com that answers these questions.
After reading Out of the Wild: A Beginner’s Guide to Package and Dependency Management, you will better understand:
The role of package managers, their corresponding language-specific registries, and universal package managers in modern software development.
The key components of an application-level package (or dependency) manager and how they work, including examples for 3 different programming languages.
How a universal package manager (i.e., binary repository manager) differs from language-specific registries/repositories and source control management repositories, and why it’s a critical piece in your DevOps toolchain.
We encourage you to read and hope you’ll share it with anyone who could benefit from a better understanding of how Nexus Repository Manager fits into the DevOps pipeline.
