The Seattle Grails/Groovy meetup group is a community resource for those within the greater Seattle metropolitan area to get together and exchange ideas regarding the Grails framework and the Groovy programming language.
Grails is a simple yet advanced open source web application framework. Grails helps development teams embrace agile methodologies, deliver quality applications in reduced amounts of time, and focus on what really matters: creating high quality, easy to use applications that delight users. Grails naturally complements Java application development since it is built on Spring and based on Groovy, the leading dynamic language for the Java platform.
Groovy is the leading open source dynamic language for the Java Virtual Machine that offers a flexible Java-like syntax that most Java developers can learn in matter of hours. Groovy provides features seen in other dynamic languages like Ruby, Python or Smalltalk. Groovy really shines in its ability to easily define internal Domain Specific Languages (DSLs) that can be used as an abstraction layer that enables non-technical subject matter experts to codify business rules.
The combination of Groovy and Grails offers productivity benefits rivaling Ruby on Rails, but on the proven, scalable, and seamlessly integrated Java platform.
This is a meeting place for those who are interested in these technologies and wish to talk to others who share those interests. We welcome people of all skill levels and ask everyone not to be judgmental.
