A reminder for the Wellington Java User Group meeting for January 2015.

Gradle: The Better Build Tool

Wednesday, January 28: 5:00 for 5:15 - 6:30pm

With build systems, as with all else in Java land, we are spoiled for choice. We have been well served for many years by the mainstream tools: Ant and Maven, as well as a number of lesser-known and commercial build tools.

But there is a new kid on the block: a powerful, flexible, modern, ployglot build tool that really shines in today's complex software build environments.

This talk will introduce Gradle, give an overview of most of its basic features, a bunch of examples, discuss some best practices from experience with Gradle, and show a little bit about writing your own Gradle plugins.


John Hurst is a Wellington Developer who started with Java in 1996. He develops mostly with Java/Groovy/Oracle at present. He has been using Gradle on a variety of projects for more than 3 years.


1/181 Wakefield St
