During Summer 2019, two excellent interns (Ryan Slama and Matt Dwoncyzk) came to Slack to help us build a tool to scan for insecure, out-of-date open source dependencies. But this talk (mostly) isn’t about their tool - it’s about what happened after they wrote the tool and returned to school. We’ll tell you about how we took their awesome proof of concept and integrated it into our daily operations at Slack to help tackle the difficult and ongoing issues around including open source components in enterprise grade software. Along with the specifics of our situation, we'll also reflect on general lessons learned about integrating tooling into reality.
