Expanded Training Program
The free Gradle Build Tool training journey has been expanded to 11 training sessions at 3 proficiency levels, from beginner to advanced. Several courses have been split into smaller ones, and the advanced courses have been expanded.
If you are starting with Gradle, the introduction course is now split into two shorter courses. Here you can first learn how to interact with it as a software developer in the Introduction to Gradle Build Tool for Developers, or jump straight into the fundamentals of build authoring in the Introduction to Gradle Build Tool for Build Engineers.
Previously, caching and dependency management topics were covered mostly in advanced courses. We now offer new, dedicated intermediate-level courses about Incremental Builds and Build Caching and Dependency Management. If you are an advanced user, you can sign up for Gradle Build Cache Deep Dive and Advanced Dependency Management, which cover those topics in greater depth.
Several new sessions will become available in August 2023, which you can find on our training and events page. We hope you’ll join the thousands of software professionals learning from Gradle training courses.
