This class will provide an in-depth tour of the new Android build system, which was designed to elegantly deal with the diversity of the Android ecosystem and the demands of modern development practices. We will go through its concepts and features such as variant support and the latest performance improvements. The new build system is also a key component to the new Android Studio and to Continuous Integration. We will show how this makes Android Studio much more powerful than other Android IDEs. We’ll also discuss how the build system can be leveraged to build powerful CI solutions and how to integrate it into larger enterprise build processes. We will give a sneak preview of a new major version of the Gradle Android plugin which comes with another massive boost for performance, variant aware dependency management and an easier yet more powerful configuration model.
