Webcast: What's new in Gradle 5.0


A lot has changed for Gradle since version 4.0 was released in mid-2017.

Gradle 5.0 is much faster and more memory efficient than previous versions of Gradle, has better tools to inspect and manage transitive dependencies, and can provide the IDE assistance you’d always hoped and expected through a new Kotlin DSL.

This 1-hour, live webcast on Nov 29th at 10am PST demonstrates 4 key themes of Gradle 5.0:

  • What Gradle’s Kotlin DSL does and who should adopt it
  • How to take full advantage of incremental compilation and annotation processing
  • Why unexpected dependency version X was selected and how to fix it
  • What new task APIs are available in Gradle 5.0

Each topic is followed by a 5 minute pause for questions. And don’t worry, it will be recorded so you can watch it again later.
