Groovy has all the features you wish Java had!

Have you ever gotten frustrated with the verbosity of Java? Have you ever wished that writing code in Java was as easy as JavaScript? Then it’s time to get yourself introduced to Groovy, an alternative language for JVM. Before you scoff and say it’s difficult to switch languages (or whatever!), just hear me out. This talk will showcase a few simple features that you wish Java had. In a live coding session, you will see how a few lines of Groovy compare to the equivalent of Java. If by the end of this talk you don’t get convinced, there is no hope for you!
