Claim an exemption from slow Android builds. In this talk you’ll learn how to get the fastest possible Gradle performance by avoiding the network latency tax.
If your build times have crept up enough, modularizing your Gradle project and setting up a remote build cache can lead to 90% reduction in execution time. However, in reality, cache performance is heavily influenced by network latency. High latency is often a consequence of data traveling long distances. For a geographically distributed team, cache performance will vary significantly. Some developers will even see build time regressions.
