Next generation dependency management with Gradle

English session - Intermediate

Gradle 6.0 concludes efforts from the Gradle team around dependency management.

As an application of library developers in the JVM ecosystem, you have a large choice of dependencies. Come discover what Gradle has to offer to help you handle your classpath efficiently, at build time instead of runtime!
Detecting and resolving logging library conflicts? Aligning the version of multi jar frameworks?
These questions will be answered!

Protecting yourself against attacks through the build

English session - Intermediate

Organisations build software all the time, from developer machines to CI, even public pull requests.
There are security risks associated with these actions! Come discover what they are and how to mitigate them.

The build tool is about execution of modifications and thus inherently insecure. However risks can be mitigated through:
* Trusted dependencies
* Reproducibility
* Vulnerability tracking

Gradle will be used for examples
