Welcome to Gradle for Android and Java!

  • 0:00 - 0:02
    You might already be
    familiar with Gradle,
  • 0:02 - 0:05
    as the magic that happens when
    you hit run in Android Studio.
  • 0:05 - 0:07
    >> Or you might be familiar
    with other build tools and
  • 0:07 - 0:09
    are just looking to ramp up on Gradle.
  • 0:09 - 0:12
    These days it takes a lot of work
    to turn a pile of source code and
  • 0:12 - 0:14
    resources into a shipped,
    tested and functioning app.
  • 0:14 - 0:18
    >> In this class, we'll learn to use
    Gradle to automate these processes,
  • 0:18 - 0:22
    which makes software development so much
    more fun and so much more productive.
  • 0:22 - 0:24
    >> Anyone serious about making
    a business in Android or
  • 0:24 - 0:27
    Java development should understand
    the complexities that development will
  • 0:27 - 0:29
    kill you if you don't automate.
  • 0:29 - 0:31
    Welcome to Gradle and Android for Java.
  • 0:31 - 0:33
    I'm Mark, a Core Engineer at Gradle.
  • 0:33 - 0:36
    >> And I'm Jeremy,
    a Course Developer at Udacity.
  • 0:36 - 0:39
    >> In this course we'll be focusing
    specifically on how to build your app.
  • 0:39 - 0:41
    And we'll assume you're familiar
    with writing simple Java and
  • 0:41 - 0:42
    Android applications.
  • 0:43 - 0:46
    >> If you're just starting on your
    Android journey, Udacity also has
  • 0:46 - 0:49
    a developing Android apps course, which
    you might want to take before this one.
  • 0:50 - 0:52
    >> This course is divided
    into four lessons.
  • 0:52 - 0:55
    First we'll learn the basics of
    Gradle and Gradle build scripts.
  • 0:55 - 0:58
    >> Then in lesson two, we'll learn to
    use Gradle to build Java projects.
  • 0:58 - 1:01
    >> In lesson three, we'll learn how
    Gradle interacts with Android Studio,
  • 1:01 - 1:04
    and how to create app with free and
    paid flavors.
  • 1:04 - 1:07
    >> Finally, we'll learn how to use
    Gradle to automate a whole raft of
  • 1:07 - 1:11
    useful Android tasks, like dependency
    management, unit testing and sign-in.
  • 1:11 - 1:13
    It will be a bit of a whirlwind tour but
  • 1:13 - 1:17
    we'll do our best to call out any
    topics where you can dig in deeper.
  • 1:17 - 1:19
    There's nothing magic about
    the App Build process but
  • 1:19 - 1:21
    it can get pretty complicated at times.
  • 1:21 - 1:22
    >> All right.
  • 1:22 - 1:23
    I'm ready.
    Let's build something.
  • 1:25 - 1:26
    >> Sounds good Jeremy.
  • 1:26 - 1:28
    Let's dig into the Java and
    Android build process.
  • 1:28 - 1:28
    >> Yeah.
