Rainy days and Java always get me down


I've Moved My Blog

It's currently located at http://www.urlinone.com/blog

I should say "I'm moving my blog." It's a pretty painful process.

Pebble has blown up on me, and it's been many months since I've been able to blog reliably. I've lost posts. And now I've got to figure out how to migrate my past blog posts from Pebble to my new destination without all the URLs changing, lest external links become 404 Not Founds.

Why does everything in the 21st century have to be a three-day project???

There are a lot of Intro To Groovy articles out there. A lot of them I find lacking something. All that syntax without motivation is hard to grok. I found this article by Mark Volkmann to be the most worthwhile.

On the other hand, maybe the tenth article you read is the one where it finally sinks in, and it doesn't really matter in which order you read them.


<p>No, it's not just because it's the tenth article you read, it's because Mark did a very very good job with his tutorial. Better than what we did on Groovy's website and our language guide. It takes a hell lot of time to write good tutorials.</p> <p>Perhaps it's time we make some 1, 5, 10 minute tutorials to help ppl jump into Groovy? What do you think?</p> <p>Note, however, than anybody is free to improve the doc, or add new sections, fix typos etc. The process is pretty open to third-parties.</p>
