Making Shell Scripts Groovy
Groovy's ecosystem has grown to fantastic dimensions over the last years. There are libraries and frameworks for virtually every job you can imagine.
What is less commonly known is that Groovy can serve as a very efficient and convenient tool on the commandline as well.
Most of my talk will be live coding. We will begin with a very brief introduction how to run Groovy on the command line. We will then move on to topics like pipes and FIFOs for command line tools interop, XML/JSON handling, dependency management and testing.
In the end you will know the tools required to write effective and well-tested shell scripts in Groovy that can utilize the full power of the JVM's library ecosystem.
