Java Build System Smackdown

There are several powerful build tools available in the Java ecosystem, but it can be painful to take the time to learn about each one and figure out the one you'd like to use. At this month's meeting, John Tyler will be comparing Maven, Ant/Ivy, Buildr, and Gradle for building Java projects.

Speaker: John Tyler

John Tyler has been mentoring development teams on such practices as Test Driven Development and automated testing since 2004, and has been a Java/J2EE developer and instructor since 2000.
