Groovy Weekly #73

It’s definitely not Tuesday, but nonetheless, lots of accumulated great and Groovy content to share with you all! It’s not easy to keep up the pace, sorry for the irregular timing of this column — I might have to remove the “Weekly” part of the name! But you won’t regret this edition, packed with so much content!


Already one month gone by since GR8Conf Europe 2015, but we have content to share about the event! And GR8Conf US 2015 is happening soon too! We also have presentations and videos from Gradle Summit and Greach 2015.


Guillaume Laforge tweeted about the recent download numbers of the Groovy project: for the first 6 monts of the year, Groovy was downloaded 4.5 million times (1 million through Bintray and 3.5 millions through Maven Central). In 6 months, Groovy was downloaded as much as the full year of 2014!


Another big milestone is the release in print of the second edition of Groovy in Action! Lots of fans tweeted their “ReGinA selfies!

Groovy on Android for the Paris Android User Group

Yesterday, I had the pleasure to speak about Groovy on Android at the Paris Android User Group. This is an evolution of my presentation from the DroidCon 2014 conference, with a few updates, in particular more coverage of SwissKnife.

Groovy in Action, 2nd edition is not a myth!

It took us a while to get it finished, but I assure you it was well worth the wait, and Groovy in Action, 2nd edition, is real! I just received my copies this morning!

Congrats to my fellow co-authors, and in particular to Dierk and Paul for their patience and dedication to this project, without whom the book would have never gone through its print stage!

My GR8Conf presentations slides

It's been a busy and intense week here at Copenhagen for GR8Conf Europe 2015! Great interactions and discussions with the Groovy community, and flawless organization.

I had the chance to present three talks this year, and I'm embedding my slides below.
First of all, I've given the usual Groovy keynote, with a Groovy state of the union.
Later on, I gave a talk on Groovy style! With interesting tips'n tricks, programming style advice.
Lastly, with my Web API hat on, I talked about various tools for creating and testing Web APIs.

Groovy Weekly #72

This 72th edition is being authored live from the Hackergarten session at GR8Conf Europe 2015, in Copenhagen (Denmark), where Groovy hackers are working on various contributions to the Groovy and Grails ecosystem, updating Grails 2 plugins to Grails 3, crafting a Groovy UI builder for Android, or work on some Gradle plugins. A busy evening!


It’s been a little long while coming, but Groovy in Action 2nd edition has just been sent to the printers! And the ebook formats will also be available this week!
