Principal Engineer @ Gradleware
Luke is the lead of the Geb project (a productivity focussed Groovy browser automation/web testing tool) project which he created in 2010. You'll also find Luke contributing to other Open Source projects such as Grails (a Groovy web development framework), Spock (a next generation testing framework for the JVM) and anything else that catches his attention.
One of the key aspects of a well oiled development workflow is the effective integration of different fit-for-purpose tools. While Gradle offers a lot out of the box, there are many great tools out there that can help you and your team at build time with many different kinds of tasks. Fortunately, Gradle is an extensible kit and offers many ways for you to leverage such tools easily.
We'll look at the techniques and APIs available for integrating tools such as code generators, web browsers, language runtimes, and even other build systems. Using embedded libraries, external processes, external Java processes, Ant tasks and even forked workers, you'll learn how you can extend Gradle by integrating your favorite tools.
