A Quick (Virtual) Trip to Portland (Oregon, US) to See What the PJUG Is Up To

Last night, at the Portland Java User Group#039;s first meeting of the new year, Merlyn Albery-Speyer was scheduled to speak about Gradle, the project automation tool. Or, rather than speak, Merlyn#039;s plan was to engage the audience in live experimentation with Gradle. In the preview for his visit, Merlyn wrote: For this session, there won#039;t be any slides. I#039;m also not going to stand up and talk at you. Instead, I#039;m going to rely heavily on your involvement. I#039;ll start with an introduction to Gradle, and then very quickly go into using it in practice. After a few minutes of that I#039;ll open it up to go wherever we#039;re most interested in.

Merlyn wrote: Do this ahead of time: What is your intention for the session? Spend some time deliberately focusing on what it is you want out of the session. Bring that will you and share it with us.

It#039;s something that he finds works out quite well. About the Portland JUG I came upon the Port...
