#uberconf groovy intro

So, groovy is basically doing ruby in java. What’s incredibly clever, aside from supporting both syntaxes and a little bit more, is translating that into something that works on the JVM. That would be kind of pointless if you were just doing groovy – why not just use ruby? – but it becomes pointful when you can integrate with whatever other Java frameworks and resources you are working with; under the covers groovy is dealing in Java objects so the translation is pretty seamless.

Or so I’m guessing, just from a quick intro. It’s pretty cool. A lifesaver if you’re stuck using the JVM!
