Are you someone who is constantly searching the globe, looking for clues on how to get maven to do your bidding? Or perhaps you just toss a coin and hope to strike it lucky this time? Maven works OK, but there's a new tool in town that goes beyond maven: Gradle. It's fresh, almost aerodynamic. Once you discover it, you'll feel like your'e 'doin' it right' when building a project. We kid you not, it's an instant crush for those that have been following the path of Maven. You are in your prime as a developer, so make the most out of it by leveraging the best tools. Oh Yeah.
