Learn to Build Like you Code with Apache Buildr

At an event organized by LinkedIn and Engine Yard November 2, 2010, Antoine Toulme of Intalio gave a brief introduction to open-source build system Apache Buildr.

Buildr is a build system for Java-based applications that is built on Ruby's build system Rake, and uses Ruby as a scripting language.

Here's what you'll get from this 13-minute presentation:

  • An Intro to Apache Buildr
  • A few code examples
  • A demo of Buildr in action

Check back later this week for videos on these presentations from the event:


  • Learn about JRuby Internals from JRuby Core Developer, Thomas Enebo
  • Replacing Java Incrementally with JRuby
  • Check out how LinkedIn Uses JRuby on its Front-end


Check out the video and slides below. And as always, you can find more educational videos on Ruby and open-source at TechTV
