It Depends On You1:15 with Craig Dennis
The future **depends** on you.
- Twitter has a few APIs that you can grab relatively easily.
- Can you use it to tweet out of an app? What about making the Sup App from Build a JavaFX Application course. Send me a Sup!
- Use the HoseBird Client to watch all Java Content, have it write out stuff you are interested in.
- Spark is a micro web-framework. Can you get it up and running?
So, there you have it. 0:00
A quick introduction into using dependencies and 0:01
a really quick drive by of the amazing build tool, Gradle. 0:03
You'll find that most other tasks that you want to perform in Gradle, 0:07
are that easy to do, as long as you go with the convention. 0:10
Remember, that there are more advanced ways to manage these dependencies. 0:14
They just require a bit more configuration. 0:18
The Gradle API is rich and very extensible. 0:21
Just about anything you can dream up can be done with relative ease. 0:24
And when done right, it's usually pretty legible too. 0:28
If you'd like a workshop on more advanced dependency management with Gradle or 0:32
even another build tool, please make your voice heard. 0:35
You and your fellow students are really helping us guide where these 0:39
courses are headed. 0:41
So, I'd like to make sure and thank the students who requested and voted for 0:42
this workshop. 0:46
I'll drop some info in the teachers' notes on how you can request more. 0:47
I hope this provides an awesome jumping off point for you. 0:51
The future depends on you. 0:54
You see what I did there? 0:56
I've also included some project ideas that you could do 0:58
using some awesome open source libraries. 1:01
If you find or know of an awesome library that everyone needs to know about, 1:04
please share it with the community. 1:07
I look forward to seeing what you build, and I hope you had a fun time. 1:10
Thanks for hanging out. 1:13
See you real soon. 1:14
