Join us at the OrlandoJUG This April for a presentation on Git, the version control tool and Gradle, the build tool. Jim Moore will give the presentation.
This session will talk about the evolution of code-management tools, specifically build-management and source revision support. We'll briefly look at the "old school" tools that developers in the Java community are usually familiar with, such as CVS, SVN, Ant and Maven. Then we'll see what the current generation of those kinds of tools (specifically Git and Gradle) do. Besides obviously being very powerful open-source implementations of these kinds of tools, one of their most important uses is to change and expand how we think about many of the issues around the development process. (Note: This will be primarily a demo-driven talk.)
Jim Moore is the Executive Director of Platform Engineering at Canoe Ventures. He has many years of experience with delivering solutions at all layers of the software stack, from code-monkey to tech-lead to consultant to executive management (and still tries to be a code-monkey when possible). He's repeatedly learned the value of tools that support developers, instead of trying to make developers conform to the workflows of the tools.
Please RSVP so we'll know how much food to order, And, please feel free to invite a friend using the Codetown Invite feature. We're looking forward to seeing you!
