Since 2006, IndicThreads’ Conferences have been delivering world class content on technologies like Java, Cloud Computing, Mobile & Software Quality. IndicThreads is excited to bring the same world class, vendor-neutral technology learning to India’s capital city, Delhi. IndicThreads Delhi will be held on 13 – 14 July.
Delhi 2012 sessions cover a vast array of critical & emerging software development technologies like JavaEE 7, Hadoop, JAX-RS, NoSQL, Redis, PhoneGap, jQuery Mobile, Sencha Touch, BDD Cucumber, HTML5, BPM, SOA, GPars, Groovy, Node.js, SaaS Architecture, Machine Learning, Akka, Nutch & more…
Build orchestration and automation has always been a tricky problem, especially once we start crossing application boundaries. Several tools in he Java ecosystem, such as ant and maven, have taken a stab at this problem.
A relatively new entrant to this space is Gradle. Built using Groovy it offers an extremely flexible means of describing builds with only as much text as is absolutely necessary thanks to it’s powerful plugin infrastructure and sensible conventions borrowed from existing tools.
This session will introduce the audience to Gradle, the various DSLs used to describe builds as well as the plugin infrastructure that allows for extending Gradle’s capabilities.
The TIOBE Programming index for April 2010 says that C is back at the No 1 position and the main reason is said to be the decline of Java which is showing a long-term downward trend. I am sure this will get reported as evidence of the end of Java being near. However while a downward trend for the Java language might be visible, I do not think there’s any downward trend for the Java platform as a whole.
While some find Groovy language still in its infancy, others know that there is now Groovy++ and are all eyes and ears on what “++” of the language is going to bring, which itself was touted by some as Java++.
Dynamic scripting languages are a powerful addition to a software designer’s toolbox. Rails/Ruby and Python have not gained much acceptance in the enterprise. Grails and Groovy are an attempt to bridge the gap between the modern scripting world and the Enterprise Java world. This talk is an introduction towards building web applications in Grails.
