Advanced Groovy
Rod Cope, CTO, OpenLogic, inc.

Track: Java

Time: 10:45am - 11:30am
Location: Portland 252

Groovy is a new dynamic, object-oriented scripting language for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) that feels like a mixture of Ruby, Python, and Java. It gives you the expressive power of Ruby, the simplicity of Python, and direct access to the (enhanced) JDK and all existing Java code.

It's easy to start using Groovy, but there are lots of goodies that aren't so obvious in the beginning. In this session, we'll cover things like currying, single object iteration, dynamic language extensions, enhancing the JDK, default parameters, advanced closures, active proxies, and more. Learn how to take advantage of the really powerful features of Groovy to get things done faster and easier.
