The Gradle-based Android build system has been designed to elegantly deal with the diversity of the Android ecosystem and the demands of modern development practices. We will go through its concepts and features such as variant support and a completely new and powerful dependency management.
The new Android build system is also a key component to the Android Studio and to Continuous Integration. We will show how this makes Android Studio much more powerful than other Android IDEs. We will also discuss how the build system can be leveraged to build powerful CI solutions and how to integrate it into larger enterprise build processes.
We will round off the talk with other new highlights that have been introduced recently or that are currently being worked on.
