Speaking Sessions

  • A Walkthrough Groovy's AST Transformations

    1:45 PM Saturday   Room: 4204
    Learn all about the wonders of Groovy's AST transformations! Tweaking the AST at compile time is a very powerful tool however some developers may find this task a bit daunting as knowledge of the compiler internals must be attained before hand. But Groovy offers an alternative in the form of AST transformations. These set of classes will enhance your code at compile time without you having to write the modifying code by hand. In this session we will explore the set of predefined AST transformations that come bundled in the standard Groovy distribution, and perhaps we can cover some additional ones found in other projects.

  • Painless Desktop Application Development: The Griffon Experience

    3:30 PM Saturday   Room: 4204
    Despite of all the buzz and hype around webapps over the last 8 years fact is that desktop applications are still found in many places, specially in the enterprise. However the legends are true: building desktop applications is a hard job. But it does not have to be. Enter Griffon. Griffon aims to bring back the fun and productivity to desktop application development in the same way Grails did it (and continues to do so) on the web. Griffon is rooted in the JVM but has Grails in its DNA. This means you'll find yourself right at home if you're a Java veteran, same goes for all of you that made the jump to Grails. In this session we'll cover the basics to get you started with Griffon. How applications are structured and built. Then we'll switch gears into high speed and cover topics like threading, testing, deploying, handling of legacy code and even network and database integration.
