JavaOne talk on how our team at LinkedIn maximizes developer productivity at scale with Gradle and Play Framework.
Overview of the talk: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/javaone-talk-play-framework-gradle-productivity-linkedin-faber
This JavaOne talk was not recorded. However, we did a similar presentation at the Gradle Summit conference in June 2017. We learned and make significant progress since the Gradle Summit but you should find the video useful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0hjJ_U-0yY
Presentation abstract, as in JavaOne Session Catalog:
linkedin.com is built with EmberJS, but under the bonnet, there are midtier services built with Play Framework, coded predominantly in Java 8 with a minimum amount of Scala code. Most Play apps in the world are developed, tested, and built with SBT, the standard Scala automation tool. LinkedIn is (finally!) using Gradle and Java to drive its production Play apps. Attend this session to learn how LinkedIn significantly improved developer productivity by switching from SBT to Gradle. It believes that it is the first enterprise to develop massive production Play applications with Java 8 and Gradle instead of the traditional Scala and SBT.
