What can you do with a big application that's mission critical, but out of date? Liberating it from unsupported tools and server lock-in is a good first step. It won't be easy, but flexible technologies like Gradle and Jetty can help. I'll be sharing my recent experience in this area and things I've learned about Gradle and Groovy, and Kotlin as an emerging, strongly-typed alternative.
This will be a joint meeting with ACM Greenville: https://www.meetup.com/ACM-Greenville/events/235596925/
Glen will step down as GreenJUG leader after this event in order to devote his time and energy to ACM Greenville. ACM Greenville will be a very similar programming-presentation-focused group, only with less focus on Java and the backing of the ACM (instead of Oracle). If you liked the past 2 years of GreenJUG presentations, please consider joining ACM Greenville.
