Developing applications for distribution usually involves the use of a build tool. In the Java world, this is likely either Gradle or Maven. In this workshop, we'll explore the basic use of Maven as a tool to compile, test, and package your application. We'll cover the standard directory layout of a Maven project, the Project Object Model (POM), and dependency management with Maven.
I spent six years teaching introductory and advanced computer science to high school students in Omaha and Chicago, and have also worked as a full-time Java developer. As a teacher, I continually strive to support students in removing all perceived and actual barriers to learning highly sophisticated material.
I enjoy running and yoga, especially outdoors in the beautiful Chicago summer weather.
