The team behind Gradle have been quietly working behind the scenes to make fundamental changes to the way that Gradle works. Some of that work is already visible in current versions of Gradle, especially in the area of native platform builds. It will eventually be used for all JVM builds too. So what are these changes? And perhaps just as importantly, why are they being made?
In this talk Peter will explain the reasoning behind the changes and the impact they’ll have on your builds. It may even highlight problems of the current model that you weren't even aware of! He'll also show you how much simpler plugin development will become, using a practical example.
Check out Gradle here.

Gradle's New Model
Peter is a long time Java developer and one of the core Grails committers. He has been developing with Grails since version 0.2 (give or take 0.1). He created the GWT Grails plugin as an exercise to see whether it was possible, but it has since grown into something that can support serious development.
