Getting software from a developer's machine to a production environment without a fully automated process is time-consuming and error-prone. Continuous Delivery enables building, testing and deploying of software through build pipelines with well-defined quality gates. In this session, we will discuss how to build an exemplary pipeline with the help of Gradle and Jenkins.

With Jenkins as the centerpiece of our build pipeline, we'll model our way from build to deployment. We'll start by introducing a case study application and learn how to build it with Gradle. Step by step, we will touch on topics like developing unit, integration and functional tests, incorporating popular OSS code quality tools as well as packaging, publishing and deploying the deliverable.
