Convention over Configuration: the Gradle way

A session at SpringOne 2GX 2015

Wednesday 16th September, 2015

2:30pm to 4:00pm (EST)

Groovy Ecosystem Track

We often read that Gradle is an imperative build system. The term build script is misleading. If it is correct to say that Gradle allows you to write code in a build script, it is definitely not its main focus. On the contrary, we will demonstrate how Gradle inherits from good practices like what Maven offered, but goes beyond by generalizing the concept and allowing you to define your own conventions.

Tasks, plugins, separation of concern, wrapper... all those concepts are important and are going to be explained in this session which will help you getting started with Gradle and start writing idiomatic, clean builds.
