NYJavaSIG - Rocking the Gradle
Wednesday, December 19, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EST)
New York, NY
ROCKING THE GRADLE
Tired of dealing with the rigidness of Maven? Need something more modern and flexible yet compatible with Ant and Maven?
This presentation introduces the power of Gradle through many real-world examples with heavy usage of demonstrations. By the end of the presentation, you'll understand how Gradle helps to elegantly solve the challenges that we face in our daily builds. We'll go through such powerful concepts as: advantages of declarative over imperative build systems, convention over configuration without rigidity, the Gradle plugins, deep multi–project support, performance optimizations through partial builds and incrementalness, harvesting existing functionality through Ant and Maven integration, as well as migration strategies for migrating from these build tools. We will demonstrate many of the innovative goodies that come with Gradle out–of–the–box, like the Gradle Daemon, the Gradle Wrapper, easy administration of your build environment, building Android apps and libraries, Eclipse integration, and other new plugins.
Closing the year out with Holiday fun with Gradle!
