Session Name: Releasing Fast, Easy, and Consistently
When a project has reached that stage when it’s a good idea to post binaries, new questions arise such as where should they be posted? How do you make it easier for users to install and discover binaries? Where should releases be shared? Most importantly, can it be automated? There are so many requirements and considerations depending on the distribution channels -- wouldn't it be great to have a tool to make it easier? We'll have a look at GoReleaser and JReleaser, two tools that provide answers to these questions and more. These tools may be used to create GiHub/GitLab/Gitea releases and publish binaries that can be consumed from different distribution channels such as Homebrew, Snap, Scoop, and more. Once published, the release cab be automatically announced on Twitter, Slack, Gitter, Discord, and other communication channels.
