Groovy is a dynamic language that runs on top of the JVM, providing modern features to Java developers today, as Groovy has the best integration with the Java platform and language so far. In this session you will learn step by step how Groovy can help you in your daily Java development and still be able to tell your boss you are working with Java. Basic knowledge of dynamic and scripting languages as Ruby, Perl, Python or JavaScript is desired for attendees as it will help them grasping concepts common to all those languages and Groovy.
