August 2017 OJUG Recap - Adam Davis on Groovy at Canvs

We had a great meeting with Adam Davis presenting on Groovy. Our co-working space Canvs, formerly at Church Street Station opened up a new office in Winter Park and we had our meeting there. Thanks to Camille Priest, Operations and Membership Coordinator, for the help in securing the space. Hopefully Canvs will be OJUG's new meeting location since DeVry is harder to secure these days. 

Adam covered much of Groovy's basic functionality. If I had one wish, it would have been for Adam to include a little more explanation about configuring Groovy. I think we all walked away with enough Groovy knowledge under our belts to hit the ground running with Groovy after the talk. 

Adam posted his presentation slides here: https://www.slideshare.net/AdamDavis30/learning-groovy-1-half-day-w...

Adam's written a book on Groovy available here:  http://www.apress.com/us/book/9781484221167

Thanks, Adam!

Thanks Michael. I had a great time. This is a really great venue and it was great to meet everyone there. The book's new landing page is: http://www.apress.com/us/book/9781484221167  It's also available on a website that rhymes with Bamazon as well as other places probably. :-)

Presentation: Actors or Not: Async Event Architectures

Yaroslav Tkachenko discusses two approaches to an asynchronous event-based architecture. The first is a "classic" style protocol that they've been implementing at Demonware (Activision) for Call of Duty back-end services. The second is an actor-based approach in place at Bench Accounting. He explores the benefits, challenges, and lessons learned architecting both Actor and Non-Actor systems.
