Gradle build files rely on a powerful DSL that let you define every aspect of a build. It's said that with great power comes great responsibility, after all we don't want the build to become an indomitable beast. This presentation showcases useful tips to keep the build under your control. We'll also cover useful plugins that are bound to increase your productivity. Plugins that enable you to keep dependencies up to date; obtain a license report for all dependencies, useful for licensing compliance; keep license headers up to date; generate aggregate coverage reports; create binary compatibility reports; write documentation that can access production code; and publish documentation to Github.
