Groovy is a scripting language built for the Java Virtual Machine. Groovy has all the same classes as Java, with a simpler syntax. This is ideal for the first time programmer who will appreciate more forgiving language to get started and not get bogged down while learning the mindset behind programming.
This short instructor led training course uses Groovy's strengths as a beginners programming language to gently introduce the aspiring programmer to the art of coding. You will find these classes non-threatening and surprisingly easy.

Pay for 6 delegates (whether you have them or not) and we will

If you have fewer delegates and cannot pay for 6, we can negotiate
a shortened course where some of the time will be spent in blended
learning - watching videos and doing tutorials and exercises with
some contact time with the trainer. We would want to discuss what
your core needs are so that we cover those aspects. You need to have
paid for 3 delegates at least.
