  • waste of time

    Although Paul and Guillaume talk about their Groovy code, you will see NO LINE OF CODE, and that 1h 40mins. I was disappointed.
    @InfoQ Hope you'll check your videos before advertising them here.

    Were you looking at the slides? All the DSL examples are lines of groovy. There were many lines of code. You may not like the talk, but your criticism is factually incorrect. How do you expect InfoQ to check videos for your criticism if your criticism are incorrect?

  • too fast, too much written on the slides
