Ready to upgrade your dependencies?

If you are a seasoned developer, you have probably made it into a second nature to pin the versions of all your dependencies, and you make sure that no library, SDK or other alien code can sneak up a quiet version upgrade into your production bundle without a lot of red flags rising up.

Odds are that you have experienced first hand the horrors unleashed by letting versions float freely…

And if you haven't, let me tell you about this little adventure we had today at Gofrendly. Bare with me. Be ready for pain. And tears. And crushed kittens.
