Ken Kousen examines features of Groovy that can make your life easier once you're past the initial adoption stage. Examples include closure coercion, mixins, simple runtime metaprogramming, and more.
Jeff Brown dives into Groovy's AST transformations, Traits and other compile-time techniques which open up a lot of powerful possibilities to application and library development teams.
Jeff Brown presents the dynamic runtime nature of Groovy that sets it apart from standard Java and makes it a great language for building dynamic applications for the Java Platform.
Jeff Scott Brown discusses the metaprogramming capabilities offered by Groovy, providing everything that developers needs to build systems that are far more capable than their all Java counterparts.
Axiomatic language is based on the idea that the external behavior of a program can be defined by an infinite set of symbolic expressions that enumerate all possible inputs, along with the outputs.
Nimrod is a statically typed programming language that tries to give the programmer ultimate power without compromises on runtime efficiency.
Guillaume Laforge and Paul King show how to leverage Groovy to build a Mars rover controlling DSL, including metaprogramming techniques and integration mechanisms.
Jeff Scott Brown discusses Groovy’s compile time metaprogramming capabilities.
Jeff Scott Brown discusses Groovy’s runtime metaprogramming capabilities and the Meta Object Protocol (MOP).
Clay McCoy discusses using Groovy’s metaprogramming capabilities and AWS SWF to deal with unreliable remote services, parallelization, scheduling critical timers, and server failures.
Matthew Flatt introduces Racket, an extensible programming language useful to create new syntactic forms and construct entirely new programming languages.
Richard Carlsson introduces and demoes a library for using template strings with meta-variables. The library was used at Klarna to implement a DSL for business logic.
