Key Gradle Concepts And Practices

Fri, 28 April, 2:00 PM GMT+5:30 |

Gradle has been described as the open source project with the most documentation that doesn't help. Key concepts, like the different steps Gradle takes at initialization time, configuration time, and execution time are not obvious, but must be understood to use Gradle effectively. This talk will cover those topics, as well as how to use source sets, IDE integration, testing in parallel, the build cache, and multi-project builds.

Other topics to be included based on the interests of attendees will include writing your own custom tasks, using and building plugins, archiving and expanding files and folders, and incremental builds for efficiency.

Recently revised to include dependency conflict resolution, lazy task creation, and more.
