Welcome to The Gradle Mastery Course !
Where you will learn the intricacies and nuances of one of the most advanced software Build Tools on the planet …
In this course you’ll learn about Gradle from the ground up.
Starting with the corner stones of Gradle; the Domain Specific Language or DSL, the Domain Object Model and Lifecycle.
Gradle relies heavily on what is called a Domain Specific Language or DSL.
For along time Groovy has been Gradles go to DSL language. So it makes sense to start there and I provide you with a good understanding in how to use Groovy with Gradle, so you can get the maximum benefit from both. Later in the course I also take a look at using Kotlin as the DSL and what IDE support there is available for this amazing programming language.
I then set the scene of how Gradle works from the inside out, by looking at the Gradle Lifecycle (… something that is often over looked!!).
You’ll get to understand that mastering the Gradle Lifecycle and associated Domain Objects is the key to getting that ‘A–ha!’ moment with Gradle. (This alone will put you streets ahead of other developers.)
You’ll learn that mastering the wide variety of Domain Objects that come with Gradle and its ‘Plugins‘ are another key that unlocks the power of Gradle.

Probably not going to be advanced enough, but we will see.

It’s a really good course, absolutely worth it. Everything clearly explained all together with some context around.
Tian Qing –
Not really, the voice is very sleepy.
Agaly Jumaklychev –
Very useful course, not too deep, but very informative and broad to get you started.

It is a very nice course. I am very confident in Gradle now after taking this course.
The gradle build system is thourougly explained. To my taste it is a little bit short. Also it will win a lot if there be some good tasks for students to perform. The examples are pritty good and well thought through.

I am in the process of trying to convert a custom maven plugin into an executable to be built by gradle. My fear was that I might have to learn groovy, but the instructor showed how it is similar to java and it gives me more confidence and reason to learn gradle.

Very clear, focused lectures. The code examples are concise and on point. The lecture videos are very polished. Some aspects of the course, however, have not aged well. The lectures are demonstrated using an older release of Eclipse. It would be nice to see the lectures updated in the future with IntelliJ as the IDE, and the focus on Kotlin as the DSL rather than Groovy. There is also a short lecture on the ‘FindBugs’ plugin, which is (according to a quick Google search) a dead plugin. The overall quality of this course is above average compared to other Udemy tech courses that I have taken. The instructor has a calm, even voice throughout all the lectures, which makes the learning process feel relaxed and stress free. A refresh of the course content to use IntelliJ and focus on Kotlin DSL would make it a five star course.

The course does not step out of the beginner level.
