How the Micronaut Team Practices Developer Productivity Engineering Using Gradle Enterprise


The Micronaut project is a modern, JVM-based, full-stack framework for building modular, easily testable microservice and serverless applications. Get the Lowdown on how the Micronaut project teams do Developer Productivity Engineering (DPE) with Gradle Enterprise. In this Webcast we chat with Cedric Champeau, a Consulting Member of Technical Staff at Oracle Labs, and Sergio del Amo Caballero, a Micronaut Product Development Lead at Object Computing Inc. about their experience setting up Gradle Enterprise for 40+ Micronaut projects to improve developer productivity. Cedric and Sergio will share their DPE wins and the productivity insights gained using Gradle Enterprise to improve  build times by 50%.
