Nx particularly shines when it comes to scaling in a large repository, but it can even be beneficial for smaller workspaces. Continuous integration time is particularly interesting. There's nothing more annoying when you have to wait for that pipeline runs to finish so that you can finally merge your PR. This gets worse as your workspace grows and has more and more apps & libs. Nx comes with "affected commands" to help with that. In this lesson we're going to learn how we can leverage those to drastically reduce the time involved in compiling/testing/linting projects.
