7-9 Goovy & Griffon Hacking with Andres Almiray
Griffon is a framework inspired by Grails for desktop/RIA development. While Griffon is primarily a Groovy/Java and Swing framework you may combine Clojure, Scala and JavaFX source code. You may also pick SWT, JavaFx, Pivot or GTK as the UI toolkit. Thus Griffon goes beyond a regular desktop development framework by offering polyglot programming if desired. Griffon is extensible via plugins, perhaps the most interesting ones are those that enable communication with a backend service via REST, WS, XML-RPC. We'll cover them during the hacktahon.
Andres is a Java/Groovy developer with more than 10 years of experience in software design and development. He has been involved in web and desktop application development since the early days of Java. He is a true believer in open source and has participated on popular projects like Groovy, Griffon, and DbUnit, as well as starting his own projects (Json-lib, EZMorph, GraphicsBuilder, JideBuilder). Founding member and project lead of the Griffon framework. Andres maintains a blog at http://jroller.com/aa...
