  • Good Intro, for me not so much

    The presentation started out really well. However,
    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.

    I'd say we (the users) get good value for the cost here at InfoQ. I'm unable to attend these training/conference presentations so I appreciate all the A/V provided here as well as the discussions and thoughtful comments. I hope I'm skilled enough to give a talk one day and I'll keep an eye on the camera operator.

    Fantastic work by Jeff for explaining concepts so beautifully. Very nice way of presenting the concepts of Groovy in such an excellent presentation.

  • Audience

    Some of the audience are using this session as a groovy development kit and asking him to execute specific code examples. This can always be done at home. Here the focus should be to get the low-down on as many features as possible and then do the specific homework of executing specific cases at home.

  • Excelent
