From Java to Groovy

02 August 2017 - Christopher J Stehno


This will be a coding walk-through presentation starting with a simple pure Java project and working through its conversion to a Groovy project with explanation at each step along the way. We will even touch lightly on moving from using Maven to Gradle, and from plain JUnit to Spock. This talk is intended for Groovy beginners, but there might still be a few interesting bits for more experienced Groovy developers.
