Mr. Subramaniam's grasp of the English language seems substantially more complete than many of his fellow countrymen and doesn't get in the way (Which is a true accomplishment for a book by a non native English speaker). What really shines however is his enthusiasm and excitement around dynamic programming languages and Groovy in particular, which is priceless.While there are occasionally turns of phrase which read awkwardly, none of them that I've found thus far obscure meaning.This is definite [...]
Groovy is an interesting language and this book makes a good introduction to it. I borrowed it from a coworker and I'm glad I did. While there are some things about groovy that make me cringe there are some other very interesting concepts in it. Venkat does an excellent job of describing what's going on and has clear, small examples that demonstrate the concepts.Recommended for all java programmers.
A very good foray into an amazing language. Enough material to dig deeper on my own.
A good starting book on Groovy for people familiar with Java programming language. Used it heavily on creating a presentation at work, and will still be using for the current project.
This is the second book I've read from Venkat Subramaniam and I should say that I'm enjoying a lot. Venkat is, from what I read, a very knowledgeable guy who's have a very specific talent to teach abstract and advanced concepts. The first book I read from Venkat was the "Practices of an Agile Developer", like this first one the approx of Venkat is equally pragmatic and full of wise advices. I trully recomend this book for someone that is new to the groovy language. It should, however, be noticed [...]
As I started reading this book and couldn't put it down, I am thoroughly impressed and do not regret my decision.Metaprogramming is covered in a good great depth. This is kind of practical book,explained thoroughly with nice working examples.It actually helped me in understanding Groovy from scratch to depth and becoming productive.I would strongly recommend it to anyone who is interested in Groovy.
very decent read, but really hard to use as a reference. (i got groovy recipes envy so i bought that one recently and will read it soon.)the index sucks.looking forward to a second edition?! its quite a stretch to compare this relatively thinnish tome to "programming perl" or "programming ruby".
A good guide for Java programmers, who would like a comparative analysis of how to do things in Groovy as compared to Java. However, if you are new to programming and are planning to start up with Groovy, this is not a book for you.
Really good introduction to Groovy language. Well written (Venkat, you know :) ) and full of useful information. I wasn't tired or bored while reading any chapter (like it was in "Scala in Action"). If you want to learn Groovy, this book is a good choice.
Altough a bit outdated, it's still the best book to learn Groovy. The metaprogramming chapters are concise but loaded with a lot of knowledge.I prefer this book over Groovy in Action, which is IMO too wordy.
Takes you deep into Groovy, quickly going through the fundamentals to explore dynamic and meta programming, builders and domain specific languages. It works well as an augment to the online docs to explain core and advanced features as one progresses into those topics.
Started well but got too heavy after the basics were covered. Going to give Groovy in Action a try.
Sometimes some ideas repeat, looks like author is paid by line of text ;)
