The Apache Software Foundation Announces Gradle as a Platinum Targeted Sponsor

WILMINGTON, DE — The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) recently announced Gradle Inc. as a Platinum Targeted Sponsor.

A recent survey of 500 US-based developers across enterprise companies found that, despite investments in DevOps, developers say waiting for builds and tests is the most time consuming task they perform next to writing code (source: Wakefield Research on behalf of GitHub, June 2023). Gradle’s targeted sponsorship enables ASF open source projects to access Develocity as part of ASF’s infrastructure service. Develocity aims to improve developer productivity and experience by providing build and test performance acceleration, Build Scan® and failure analytics technologies.

“We are happy to welcome Gradle as a Platinum Targeted Sponsor of the ASF. Several ASF projects are using Develocity in conjunction with more than 30,000 aggregate weekly builds, and we expect that number to rise significantly as more projects leverage this resource,” said Greg Stein, Infrastructure Administrator, ASF.

ASF projects currently leveraging Develocity for weekly builds include Apache Beam®, Apache Kafka®, Apache Lucene®, and Apache Pulsar®. The live instance of Develocity running at ASF right now can be accessed here.

“We are happy to become an ASF Sponsor to support the open source community and help make Gradle technologies available for use by ASF project developers,” said Hans Dockter, founder and CEO of Gradle. “We are excited to see ASF projects like Apache Beam and Apache Kafka leveraging Develocity and hope to see many more use this resource in the future.”

Gradle Inc. is also a sponsor and speaker at ASF’s flagship conference Community Over Code North America (formerly ApacheCon) taking place in Nova Scotia October 7-10. To view the schedule and register visit
