Groovy Weekly #45

This week, coming back from the Devoxx conference in Belgium, I’ve gathered a bag of Groovy news for your consumption, for our usual Tuesday Groovy Weekly release!


No particular big highlight today, but perhaps just a happy birthday to GrooScript, the Groovy to JavaScript transpiler, and also notice the opening of the Call for Paper for the GR8Conf conferences in Europe and in the United States.

Groovy Weekly #44

Today is the celebration of the veteran day / remembrance day in various countries throughout the world. So I’ll start with a big thank you to our ancestors who fought for our freedom!


This week is also a busy week as a part of the Groovy core team is moving to Antwerpen in Belgium to speak about Groovy at the Devoxx conference.


My picks of the week, among the news below are: the release of Gradle 2.2, the release of ElasticSearch 1.4 which now standardizes on Groovy for its default scripting language, and the announcement of the dates of the Greach conference in Spain and its call for paper which is open.

Groovy Weekly #43

This week, an InfoWorld article lists Groovy among the 9 cutting-edge programming language worth learning today, although it reduces Groovy to a mere Java dynamic scripting language. Are you happy with the investment you made into learning Groovy a while ago?


We also have some nice releases, like the monthly Ratpack release, or the 1.0 versions of GroovyServ (for starting up your Groovy scripts at light speed), and Gaiden for making nice documentation with Markdown.


Jorge Franco keeps on writing some cool demos with GrooScript, to write your JavaScript apps in your favorite programming language. He also unveiled the new GrooScript website!


In the news section, I’ve also listed a couple refinements coming up in Groovy 2.4, with @DelegatesTo / @ClosureParams annotations alignments and the new @SelfType annotation for traits to restrict trait application.

Groovy Weekly #42

Isn’t it a mythical number? The 42nd edition of Groovy Weekly! Will we get the answer to life the universe and everything?


At least, we have a nice list of releases, this week, in particular with Grails 2.4.4, Geb 0.10 and the first milestone of Reactor 2.0!


And if there’s one thing I’d like to highlight in addition, that would be MrHaki’s release of his new book, the Spock Notebook, with all those nice recipes about our preferred testing framework.

Groovy Weekly #41

Along with some valuable releases like the first release candidate of Gradle 2.2, there are interesting links on the topic of the Groovy Android story, as well as new glimpse on AST macros and AST pattern matching coming up. Worth a look!


In terms of events, the Greach conference in Spain has opened its Call for Paper, and the GR8Conf Europe crew reminds us that all the great content from the last edition is freely available on their YouTube channel.
