Course Title
Programming in Groovy

The power of Groovy is in metaprogramming. Sure, it's a language that's fluent, concise, integrates well with Java, and provides the functional style of programming. But, one of the main reasons to choose Groovy is to exploit its metaprogramming capabilities. If you're interested in learning about the compile time metaprogramming or the run-time dynamic capabilities or creating domain specific languages and fluent APIs with those capabilities, this course is specifically designed for you. While we get deeper into those capabilities of the language, along the way, we'll learn about various other features that make Groovy such a wonderful language to program in.
