Make concurrency groovy again

Don’t get me wrong. Concurrency is already “groovy” in Groovy but with each passing day we usualy try to focus on even higher and higher levels of abstraction. From GPars to Rx we’re treating concurrency as a byproduct of our paradigms so usualy when things got ugly (as usualy happens with concurrency) we don’t have a “Plan B”.

In this talk I’ll try to ground some of the possible flavors of concurrency that we have available inside the Groovy language and the JVM ecosystem starting with threads and going through higher levels like Rx and even Akka.
