The Complete Apache Groovy Developer Course

Are you looking to learn a new language? Learning a new language helps expand your skill set as a developer and make you more marketable to employers. If you aren't learning a new language because it's not the one you use at work, I think you're missing out on the benefits. I often find that seeing how other languages solve problems makes me a better developer with the languages I use on a day to day basis. I am here to tell you all about an awesome dynamic language called Apache Groovy.

What is Apache Groovy?

Apache Groovy is a powerful, optionally typed and dynamic language, with static-typing and static compilation capabilities for the Java platform, aimed at improving developer productivity thanks to a concise, familiar and easy to learn syntax. It integrates smoothly with any Java program and immediately delivers to your application powerful features, including scripting capabilities, Domain-Specific Language authoring, runtime and compile-time meta-programming and functional programming.

Who Should Learn Apache Groovy?

I am going to teach you everything you need to know to start using the Groovy programming language. This course is really designed for 2 different types of people and I think you will both benefit from it. If you’re a beginner programmer with a some experience in another language like Python or Ruby, this course is for you. Dynamic languages are generally thought of as easier for total beginners to learn because they’re flexible and fun. If you’re an existing Java Developer (Beginner or Experienced), this course is also for you. You will learn Groovy compliments the Java language and makes some of the complex tasks from Java concise and easy.

We analyzed reviews for this course to surface learners' thoughts about it

so far in 18 reviews

Very well organized, the instructor is knowledgeable and is presenting the information really well... A java developer would wish this course was a little faster, but of course it is understandable that the course is addressing anyone regardless of the background... Good so far.

So far it was good refresher course for me on Object Oriented programming plus learning a higher abstracted language like Groovy which sits on top of Java.

It's not really grasping so far, I don't really want this experience to be boring for me.

great material, easy to understand So far, seems like a good fit.

Seems fine until now Great So Far!

Dan, however, opts to teach the first sections of the course in Groovy Console, even going so far as to ask a loaded quiz question, "Is Groovy Console awesome?".

Great course so far.

The course is pretty basic so far.

This course covers Groovy well and if you are already a Java developer it should be an easy transition after doing the course.

Here is my git repo with examples - I am experienced Java developer and wanted to learn Groovy for new project.

If you have, or if you are Java developer - this course is great.

I think this is also a great resource for new hires at shops who use Groovy/Grails/Spock/Gradle and are hiring talented Java Developers who may not yet know Groovy.

Even if you are an experienced Java developer (like me) the course will teach you all ways Groovy improves on Java.

Our development team is currently learning Groovy but most of us do not come from a Java background and most of the Groovy resources out there seem to be targeted at Java developers.

I get the impression that everything becomes simple All data looks almost obvious for java developers in this intoduction part, as all java devs should know whats javadoc etc good This course has a good cadence thus far, and it is doing a great job of providing the context + big picture before diving into details of the topic.

Kudos to the instructor Dan Vega - excuse me...

The Real Dan Vega for being meticulous and choosing the topics/subjects I feel is appropriate in learning Groovy.

Many thanks, Dan Vega your name is written in many example programming we are remember you everywhere thanks Dan, The course is too basic.

:) The key reason is that it's because Dan Vega has a pleasant speaking voice, and provides an engaging experience.

Thanks to Dan Vega.

I want to Thank Dan Vega for such a nice course on Groovy:-) Regards, Aseem Jain Thanks Dan for a great course.

Dan Vega is a great teacher.

Dan vega has perfectly designed this course with all useful topics paying attention to what is needed.

easy to follow in 9 reviews

Groovy is inside of one influenced language of Kotlin and now I know where from comes some of the nice features of Kotlin :) Again, great thanks to great teacher Dan Vega :) the stuff treated in this course so far is good and easy to follow.

It's easy to follow and there are times when the information is fairly rudimentary, but for these moments it's quite easy to change the video speed.

I really liked the way the instructor explained the concepts Very informative and easy to follow.

But, it keeps moving forward on a nice pace, and this way it's easy to follow.

Buenas explicaciones teóricas acompañadas de ejercicios prácticos que aclaran los distintos temas great explanation and easy to follow So far I'm impressed with the level of detail that Dan has in covering the topic.

Easy to follow along.

Easy to follow, clear and straightforward.

It's easy to follow the course and is interesting So far, so good.

The one thing that i miss is writting some bigger application - BUT I am only in the middle of the course - maybe there will be such thing :) As a Java developer starting to work with Groovy, the course served as a nice introduction.

As a Java developer I'm fully satisfied.

As a Java developer I very like this course.

:) I can only comment as a Java developer, but for me this was a very nice introduction into Groovy.

As a Java programmer (with many years experience) I found this course useful, albeit simplistic.

As a Java developer, I thought this course was really well designed.

recommend this course in 6 reviews

I will definitely recommend this course to anybody!

I recommend this course for both advanced and beginning developers It would be nice to remind the students a couple times (sprinkled throughout the course) that you are using (showing them how to copy/paste from 'raw' in the file) for the various exercises.

I would recommend this course to anyone trying to learn groovy, they will learn more in this course than in 6 months of self learning by books and youtube, i know from personal experience.

I would recommend this course for those who are new to programming and want to start with an easy language, and for those experienced who just want to jump into Groovy from another language and need to have an overview about the language, but they may fastforward or skip some parts so that they don't get bored.

If you want to learn Groovy, I totally recommend this course.

I like this course, I would recommend this course to anyone wants to learn Groovy language.
