Likelihood to Recommend

AWS CodeBuild

It is really good for building projects in the cloud. If you try to do build the project first locally and then push that stack to the cloud it could take a lot of time. In this way, it also consumes a lot of resources in the computer and in the network.

GNU Make

GNU Make is a great tool for simple builds where language-specific options are not available, or to provide shortcuts for common commands (e.g., "make build" as shorthand for "go build ..." with a bunch of flags). However, it is complementary to other build systems. It does not replace them, which is perhaps one of its greatest strengths as well (works with existing ecosystem instead of trying to do everything). GMU Make it simple to get started with, and the philosophy of understanding how sources map to outputs, as well as the dependency graph, are beneficial.

Cons

AWS CodeBuild

  • Sometimes it runs an outage and developers don't know why. We have to contact DevOps most of the time.
  • Sometimes it is slow
Manuela Jacqueline Mercado Rodríguez | TrustRadius Reviewer

GNU Make

  • No dependency management tools (but there are no cross-platform tools of this type anyway)
  • Tedious to do cross-compilation (Debug & Release builds, 32- and 64-bit builds, x86/ARM builds)

GNU Make 7.1
Based on 2 answers
In general, it is fair to say the support is sufficient although we do not deal with support directly. There are a lot of forum people chiming in with suggestions or recommendations of particular usage or issues we run into. Since it is open software, patch and fixes will be available from time to time. A lot of information is available in the web now for knowing GNU Make from learning, example, teaching, etc.

Alternatives Considered

AWS CodeBuild

AWS CodeBuild provides the option to fully implement the build in the cloud without wasting your local resources (computer and network) providing independence to developers to invest those resources in other processes. It also provides a robust platform with a lot of customizations or just a script for each language.

GNU Make

I'm a full-stack developer that has used various build tools, including Maven, Gradle, and NPM/yarn. For our C projects, I also investigated CMake and Ninja, but they seemed more difficult to learn and more tedious to work with. GNU Make is a single binary that can be easily downloaded, even for Windows under MingW32, is straightforward to learn, and works pretty well despite its age.

Return on Investment

AWS CodeBuild

  • It has a positive ROI
Manuela Jacqueline Mercado Rodríguez | TrustRadius Reviewer

GNU Make

  • Streamline the build based on a lot of existing component being done, reusable.
  • Commonly understandable, therefore, rampup effort is small.
