ABSTRACT:  Groovy and Grails Overview
Why should you bother to learn Groovy? Answer: to be more productive. Why should you learn Grails? Answer: same as above. In this presentation I will demonstrate sample programs written in both Java and Groovy to show off Groovy’s productivity. I will also explain the key concepts behind Grails via a sample app. Also included is a whirlwind tour of the Groovy language.


Bob has an MS in Computer Science and more recently an MA in Mathematics. He has been a systems programmer, an applications programmer, an architect, a project manager (yuk), and a mentor to many junior developers.
