Go Go Gradle Build!
Wednesday May 29th, 2013
6:30 - 8:30 PM
Gradle is a powerful flexible build automation tool. Gradle combines a clean readable declarative DSL that defaults to the Maven conventions, with the flexibility that comes with using Groovy instead of XML. Gradle's easy inline extension has resulted in it becoming the tool of choice for those developing Continuous Delivery pipleines for Cloud deployments. This presentation will go over the basics of how a Gradle build is structured, the process by which a Gradle build is executed, and then some common build examples.
Adam Roberts is a Software Engineer at PROS. His career in software development has been an eclectic mix of technologies and platforms over the past ten years.
