We haven't had a Groovy / Grails meeting in a while - would be good to have one last one in 2011.    One of the members volunteered some space at NYU so it might be a different venue this time if the timing works out.  

Wanted to ask people for their thoughts as to the topic - please let us know which you'd prefer!

1. With 2.0 coming out soon, talking about the new features is obviously something people will be interested in.   Is anybody playing with 2.0 already?  It would be good to have some people volunteer to take a few features and talk about them to spread the load.  

2. Another thing to do would be another show-and-tell from things people are doing with their projects.   It would be great to have some of the places that are using Groovy / Grails heavily to step up and tell others about what they are working on.    For example, I have recently gotten onto Jesque.  It's a Grails Plugin that sits on top Redis and allows to kick off background jobs through a queueing system.    It was very simple to get working and is pretty cool - plus it allows me to add Redis to my stack, something I am sure I'll use more over time. 

3. (Post-December) I am thinking in the new year it might be good to do something more basic for the people who are interested in Grails but haven't quite started working on it - 2.0 will be a great time to get onto the platform.  

I've been hearing about several new New York startups getting onto the Grails platform, that's great to hear.  I'd love to highlight what people are working on and help out if I can.  

We are always interested in people stepping up and presenting, whether it's a full hour, or even show off something they've been working on for 15 minutes.  



P.S.  We are looking for a Senior Engineer to join EnergyScoreCards.  Please reach out if you are interested.  

P.P.S.  Free Groovy / Grails Help Offer:  If you are working with Grails, or are just thinking of starting a project with it - I'd be happy to get on the phone with you talk you through some design or architecture issues you may have, or just give you some thoughts.   I've done that with a few people - I think they found it useful.   Reach out - [address removed].
