Grails and MongoDB, Twillio, GeoIP Case Studies, with special guest from Brazil

  • Mar 5, 2012 · 6:15 PM
  • EMC Offices

Time to meet! Our meetup has almost 300 members, so would love to find out what everybody is working on.

Let's take the first fifteen minutes to talk about each other's project before launching into presentations.  We'll start the presentation around 6:30pm.  

1. Grails & MongoDB and several other projects.  For our first talk, Iure will talk about his experiences with MongoDB and Grails, as well as some other projects he's worked on in the last few years. 

About the speaker:   Iure Guimaraes is visiting us from Brazil.  Over the last 4 years Iure have been working with Grails and using it to deploy applications related to supermarkets, architecture, precision agriculture and social interaction. His last project is a social network where people can offer and ask for a ride and is currently being used by the Federal University of Goiás while in beta. Iure recently joined the EnergyScoreCards team.

2. Grails and Twillion / GeoIP.  For our second talk, Oleksiy Deverishchev will present his project www.findroomrent.com. It's a classifieds project for roommates, however he tried to cut everything to the minimum and make it really useful. 


FindRoomForRent is using the Twilio API for sending text messages to verify poster's and responder's phone number before those can post ad or respond to one to prevent scams. It is making the poster receive all the responses via texts rather than emails. For Twilio API Oleksiy wrote Grails service, as he had problems using Twilio Grails plugin.  The app also uses Geo IP plugin to direct user to the largest city in the region he comes from. Site features about 30 biggest cities in the US (Census Data 2010).  Application also automatically updates Twitter feed when a new ad is posted.

Bio: Oleksiy Deverishchev is a freelance web developer living in New York City. The scope of things he does includes :- website design and re-design services- php/MySQL development - Java and Grails development- virtual private server (VPS) migration, setup and tune-up
While working at Educational Networks Inc as a software developer aid for tech support, Oleksiy is eager to learn new technologies and work on exciting new projects.

    Speakers were good. Interesting talks about interesting projects. Discussion afterwards was also interesting. It would be great to have a few more people attend to add to the conversation. Thanks for organizing Jean. And thanks too to the speakers.
