Using Groovy in Productive Capacity?

Hi Fellow Groovers,

Forgive me if this is not the exact forum for this discussion, but I am curious to understand what the state of Groovy interest in the New York metro area is.

Are any of you using Groovy ( which includes Grails ) in a "productive" capacity?   That is, not necessarily rolling with it in production ( though that does indeed count ), but also if you're using it for "enterprise scripting",  build management ( via Gant or Gradle or homegrown ) , GroovyFX , Griffon, testing ( including Spock, Geb, EasyB, etc.. ) ,  Gaelyk, or any of the hundreds of other ways that I am probably not able to think about.

If you are, would you be willing to share how you're using it and what sort of challenges you faced. 

If you're not, would you be willing to share what the reasons there are, as well?

I assure you that I'm not some recruiter, just a big nerd working at a faceless corporation, trying to figure out why there seems to me to be a great difference in the level of local enthusiasm for languages like Ruby, Scala, JavaScript, Python, even Java, but not qu
ite Groovy .

I thank you in advance for your time,

-a
