Good intro for groovy for java developers
Good Intro, for me not so much
once the Jeff started typing in example code
the camera did not pan to show what he was talking
about. It did at the very first.
The whole bit on Closure parameters was a wash. All
we get is him talking, nothing what he was typing as
seen by the audience. What happened, did the camera
person go for a latte?!
Jeff was an articulate and fine presenter. Unfortunately,
the last half of his presentation the camera person
let him down.
