Subject [DRAFT] Proposed board report for Apache Groovy for May 2018
Date Sun, 06 May 2018 03:05:06 GMT
In case Guillaume delegates the board report to me, I thought I would get in
early and produce a draft in case anyone else has anything to add. It is due
in a few days time.

Guillaume, feel free to send as is or add in more info if you want or
further feedback. It DOESN'T have download numbers in as yet. I jump on a
plane tonight but I can progress further if need be in a couple of days

Cheers, Paul.


## Description:

Apache Groovy is a multi-faceted programming language for the Java platform.
Groovy is a powerful, optionally typed and dynamic language, with static-
typing and static compilation capabilities, aimed at multiplying developers’
productivity thanks to a concise, familiar and easy to learn syntax. It
integrates smoothly with any Java program, and immediately delivers to your
application powerful features, including scripting capabilities, Domain-
Specific Language authoring, first class functional programming support
and runtime and compile-time meta-programming.
