Groovy: the cool side of Java

The purpose of this talk is to introduce Groovy using a practical approach by showing the differences and the improvements that Groovy bring, compared with an older programming language class.

Since groovy is based on the JVM, it is natural to compare it with Java language.

We will start from a couple of java classes and we will rewrite it using Groovy and we will see how Groovy removes the ceremony and give a shorter and more understandable code.

During the talk will be also explained theory concepts around groovy implementations time to time will be faced. Despite the topic, this talk is open to java and non-java developers.
