There is a good reason why dynamic languages such as Groovy and Ruby are getting a lot of attention. They are powerful, expressive languages that enable developers to easily write concise programs. However, not all of their benefits derive from being dynamic. Many important benefits are simply due to modern language design such as the support for closures. Moreover, dynamic languages have some inherent drawbacks. The extremely limited compile-time checking requires developers to write significantly more tests and severely limits how much help an IDE can provide to a developer.
In this session, which is aimed at Java developers and architects, you will learn
• What it means for a language to be dynamic
• Which Groovy features we liked the most
• The frustrating side of Groovy development
• How Groovy compares to Scala, which is a modern statically typed language that provides many of benefits of Groovy
