As your project grows larger and more complex, its build will become slower if left unchecked. Having fast and reliable builds has a major influence on developer productivity. Faster builds make feedback cycles shorter by reducing wait times and context switches for developers. Recent Gradle releases give you new capabilities to greatly improve the speed of your Java project build.
In this session, we will discuss and use real builds to demo how you can:
- Identify performance bottlenecks
- Reduce build configuration time dramatically
- Take advantage of advanced features like compile avoidance and Gradle distributed build cache to reduce build times by magnitudes
- Track build performance over time for your whole team
