Jeroen Mols refocussed his master in Electrical engineering to become an Android developer. Starting off with highly technical prototypes for Wi-Fi connected products, he build his own file sharing platform (Wi-FileTransfer). One thing led to another and currently he drives the innovation for the official Philips Hue Android and iOS apps.
Thanks to Gradle, reusing other people’s code has never been easier. Sharing your code on the other hand is still a complex, poorly documented and challenging process. Which Maven repository should you release to: JCenter, MavenCentral or JitPack? Is there a way to just distribute within your company? What are the steps to setup all accounts and automate everything using Gradle? How do I ensure each version is unique and stays available forever.
The past year, Jeroen created a complete overview for library distribution, both to the entire community or just contained within your company. Besides some obvious solutions like JitPack, you’ll learn about the advantages and disadvantages of all alternatives. Jeroen will even show how you can use BitBucket/Github as a Maven repository! Gradle scripts will be provided and important aspects like security are taken into account.
