6:15-7:45: A Tour of Gradle with Jim Moore
Jim will be giving a "tour" of Gradle. Instead of "Here's what Gradle is" or "Here's a bunch of plugins", the talk focuses on the kinds of things that are hard to Google for, or you might miss if you read the (excellent) User Documentation. There's enough basics and background to make it accessible to people that don't really know the tool, as well as in-depth bit-twiddling for experienced Gradle Build Masters.
About Jim Moore
During decades of working at Fortune 200 companies and startups, Jim has designed and built several very large enterprise systems (including one spanning continents and another detecting terrorist threats). A heavy emphasis on automation and testing, especially using open-source, has been an integral part of that, leading him to be a committer-emeritus for the Apache Software Foundation and the Spring Framework. He has spoken at development conferences and active in several user groups around the country, in addition to being a husband and daddy of three *very* cute little girls.
