For my Teamwork Framework project and Rapid Prototyping Tools project for D.I.Y. Makers ( Do It Yourself) in Robotic and Mechatronic , I am studying a very interesting programming language Groovy and his “Ruby on Rails“-like framework called Grails . Groovy, the power and rich ressource of java combined with the easy of Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Python and smaltalk.
Groovy is an agile and dynamic language for the Java Virtual Machine. Builds upon the strengths of Java but has additional power features inspired by languages like Python, Ruby and Smalltalk. Makes modern programming features available to Java developers with almost-zero learning curve.
