    Comments about oreilly Learning Apache Maven:

    I, as probably many other Maven users, have been using Maven for a few years, but my usage was limited running maven compile and editing a few pom files here and here. I didn't really get the philosophy of Maven.

    This set of videos is great for people like me or complete Maven novices. It's a very concise introduction to the philosophy of Maven through practical examples.

    I did not watch the video that had to with the M2e plugin for Eclipse since I no longer use Eclipse, but I wish I had a few years ago when I was.

    I wish the videos had gone explained things like Nexus repos. The use of repos is mentioned a few times and some online repo is briefly introduced, but other than that it's not really fully explained.

    You won't be a Maven specialist by any stretch of the imagination at the end of these videos, but you'll have enough material to be comfortable with it and more importantly, "get it".
