Gradle is an awesome and very powerful build tool. It is key to tune your build and even more relevant to achieve the promised karma of continuous integration. However, one of its biggest "shortcomings" is that in order to extract any drop of power juice, you need to know and use Groovy. Nothing against Groovy, but it is just another language and, very likely, one that you don't use very often. But worry no more! Now you can use the same language that you enjoy and use it when you write the code of your apps: Kotlin. During this workshop Jorge will start with a walk through some of the most relevant features of gradle. Then you will learn how to transform the gradle configuration of a project to use Kotlin DSL. You will finish by extending that configuration with a new functionality taking advantage of writing it in Kotlin. Join Jorge to kotlinize your gradle!
