Don’t Let Ephemeral CI Kill Your Developer Productivity

Summit Producer's Highlight

Louis dives into how the standard performance optimizations that enhance developer productivity with Gradle Build Tool can be hindered in a stateless, ephemeral CI environment. He then shares which performance features make sense in these environments and walks through how to optimize Gradle Build Tool for various use cases.

About this talk

Gradle Build Tool comes with a number of performance optimizations that help reduce the work to be done for each build. However, some of these optimizations are achieved by keeping local state. While this is beneficial for local development, it can cause surprises in modern continuous integration setups where the trend is to have isolated and disposable environments. Suddenly, your Gradle build is slow!

The goal of this session is to provide strategies for getting the best of both worlds: allow Gradle to leverage its performance optimizations while running in ephemeral environments.

The session will cover different performance aspects for a Gradle build and how you can support them in such an environment.
