    Hello, Groovy! 

    My new job demands me to learn a lot of new things that I never wanted to! Today I wrote my first ever Groovy script. And it compiled and run! Awesome 🙂

    package subin.groovy;
     * Hello, World!
     * @author Subinkrishna Gopi
    class HelloWorld
    	static def aString = "Hello, World!"
    	static void main(args)
    		println("${aString.toUpperCase()} it's a nice day today :)")

    Things I learned in the past 6 years! 

    And finally I decided to change the first job I ever had! The last six years taught me a lot of lessons – good, bad & ugly ones.

    Note: The characters/incidents in this story are almost real.

    So, here it goes:

    • If you are not an expert in multitasking, hmm… better you learn it. You are supposed learn how to zip your pants while tying your shoes!
    • There are three ways to solve a problem. A simple way, a difficult way & a stupid way.
    • Communication is always two-way. If someone mails you for a help, replying “Go to hell!” is much better than not replying at all.
    • A Jailor can never be a Florist, and vice versa.
    • Be cool or pretend to be cool. No one can tell the difference, almost every time.
    • Spend more time with family, not in office. After all we all are human beings & social animals.
    • Submit your financial claims properly, you will end up paying for official trips otherwise. Well… I’m paying the EMIs, still.
    • Listen to your wife/girl friend(s), they do talk sense… sometimes.

    Okay. If you are person who thinks python is a big scary snake & looking at eclipse is a taboo, you can stop reading. Because the following is for those who loves to tame the python with eclipse.

    • Respect NullPointerException. They can pop up anytime in your code, even if you are James Gosling or Joshua Bloch.
    • Try to write code that humans can understand.
    • Java != JavaScript. Many “technical” managers will not agree it though.
    • If your Hello, World! program don’t run, don’t expect your space-ship program to compile. (Courtesy: Vasu)
