Given Groovy, who needs Java

Session description

Groovy is now the replacement for Java since not only can it do dynamic code it can do static code as well.  

Starting with a brief discussion on Groovy, most of this session will be a Groovy vs Java coding challenge commences.

A problem will be proposed and whilst people code it in Java, Russel will do it in Groovy and we find out who gets there first and more accurately, with other writing tests in JUnit, TestNG and Russel using Spock.


What topic are you covering

- Groovy programming language


Any previous experience required?

The session assumes some basic Java knowledge, but then this is the London Java community conference :-)


What will attendees learn by attending your session

Attendees will learn that Java is a dead language and that the JVM lives
on with Groovy.
