Creating better builds with Gradle

Would you like to build a project that follows the typical Maven conventions (such as publication to Maven Central) but you don’t know how to structure your Gradle build to generate docs, distribute it or perform code analysis?

Join Andres Almiray, Developer Advocate at Gradle Inc, to learn about the Kordamp Gradle plugins, a project which provides a set of Gradle plugins that define a conventional structure and many features commonly found in Maven builds.

You will learn how to create a powerful but familiar structure to leverage the features found in the Gradle Build Tool. After the workshop you should have a clearer picture on how to build, document and distribute a project.
