Gadget: The Ultimate Code-Checking Machine

Brujo Benavides
CTO @ Inaka

There are many tools around to check your code and help you improve it: dialyzer, xref, erl_tidy, tidier, elvis. But running them all by hand is a tedious and, sometimes, cumbersome process. Gadget will automate all that for you, as long as you have your code hosted on a public github repository. He'll interject your PRs, check your code with all the tools you want and write comments on the lines you need to review.

Talk objectives:

- In this talk we will learn how Gadget is built, how you can use it, what does it do for you and how you can help him grow and be smarter.

Target audience:

- Erlang developers, especially those working on open-source projects.
