Are you looking to learn a new language? Learning a new language helps expand your skill set as a developer and make you more marketable to employers. If you aren't learning a new language because it's not the one you use at work, I think you're missing out on the benefits. I often find that seeing how other languages solve problems makes me a better developer with the languages I use on a day to day basis. I am here to tell you all about an awesome dynamic language called Apache Groovy.
What is Apache Groovy?
Apache Groovy is a powerful, optionally typed and dynamic language, with static-typing and static compilation capabilities for the Java platform, aimed at improving developer productivity thanks to a concise, familiar and easy to learn syntax. It integrates smoothly with any Java program and immediately delivers to your application powerful features, including scripting capabilities, Domain-Specific Language authoring, runtime and compile-time meta-programming and functional programming.
Who Should Learn Apache Groovy?
I am going to teach you everything you need to know to start using the Groovy programming language. This course is really designed for 2 different types of people and I think you will both benefit from it. If you’re a beginner programmer with a some experience in another language like Python or Ruby, this course is for you. Dynamic languages are generally thought of as easier for total beginners to learn because they’re flexible and fun. If you’re an existing Java Developer (Beginner or Experienced), this course is also for you. You will learn Groovy compliments the Java language and makes some of the complex tasks from Java concise and easy.
I have spent a lot of time putting together what I think is the most complete course on Groovy on the market today. Please take the time to watch the preview videos and If you like what you see, click that enroll button and I will see you inside!
