DZone Interviews: Peter Gromov on IntelliJ’s Groovy support | Groovy Zone – Without a doubt IntelliJ IDEA is the IDE of choice of many Groovy developers out there, simply because it was the first IDE to raise the bar in terms of support for the language — and continues to do so. Peter Gromov is currently in charge of all things Groovy on IntelliJ, let's hear what he has to say about his experiences with the language.
Scala Becomes a Platform | CTO Edge – One new programming language that is likely to get some traction in the enterprise is Scala, which is actually an extension to Java. As such, many corporate IT organizations are likely to see Scala as something that extends their existing programming capabilities to a new scale of distributed computing.
I am a total Java geek that lives in Brookfield - WI (Milwaukee), making my living as an architect/developer, spending all my time with Java, J2EE, OO, Linux, and open source. In my spare time, when I am not in front of my computers, I spend every other minute with my other loves: My wife and daughter, books, music, guitars, Formula-1 racing and SCI-FI shows like StarGate and others.
At work, I spend most of my time dealing with architectural and security issues with plenty of work and personal play-time going into discovering the latest tool, framework, etc that will allow us to work faster, smarter and deliver better results. A lot of my time is also spent fire-fighting issues and coming up with solutions to interesting problems. :)
