Buildr is build on top of rake, “the ruby make”, and ruby. Buildr keeps maven good habits (repositories, standard sources layout, standard commands such as compile, test, install…) but remains a simple and easy to extend tool.We will see concrete exemples of real buildfiles. We will also see what benefits are brought by rake and all the possibilities available with the ruby language.

buildr is available at buildr.apache.org : an active and open community in the US and in Europe.
