Justin Kaeser: Taming the Beast - Better Bazel in IntelliJ.

Like this conference, over time Justin Kaeser has moved from Scala to Scale. Previously focusing on build tool support in the IntelliJ Scala plugin, these days he leads a team at JetBrains devoted to improving support for Bazel and large projects in IntelliJ IDEA.
