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.

Back from JavaOne

After some trouble getting to San Francisco because of strikes, transportation issues, burnt control tower, and more... I managed to land to JavaOne! I missed my own first talk and I was glad and grateful that Cédric could present it for me.

At JavaOne, the Groovy project received the award from ZeroTurnaround / RebelLabs, for the "Best Tech - Geek Choice Award" :

And at the famous "Script Bowl" competition, I managed to get on the first place of the podium, along with the Clojure representative, showing Groovy traits, Groovy on Android, and GrooScript transpiling Groovy into JavaScript.

And last but not least, my presentation slides...

Groovy on Android at DroidCon Paris 2014

I was very honored to be able to speak about Groovy at DroidCon Paris 2014 a couple of weeks ago. It was really great to spend time with the Android community and learn more about their needs, pain points, and more.

The video of the presentation is available below:
