AleCx041684879dEver heard of the Grails framework? It uses Groovy extensively, almost exclusively.
I dig the language and apparently you do too. If so there is no reason as to why you shouldn't learn it :) have fun learning languages for the knowledge they can give you, regardless if you ever use them or not.
Diactoros109079dGroovy is the primary scripting language for Jenkins (formerly Hudson) Under the hood of all those “automagic” CI/CD services are lots of skilled Jenkins admins with lots of groovy code.
Diactoros109079d@EventEmitter For sure, I’m just getting into it so I’m no expert but the “Scripted Pipelines” are pretty much a wrapper for raw Groovy, and the Declarative Pipelines I *think* are just Groovy code under the pipeline syntax and “steps”.
To be fair Jenkins has a reputation for being difficult to manage but if you like Groovy go find a job as a DevOps engineer and setup a Jenkins scripted pipeline with Groovy.
