Groovy and Grails have steadily been gaining traction in the last few years, but what exactly are they and how can they help you?
In a first 40 minute talk, Peter Ledbrook will introduce the language and some of the most significant projects associated with it. The focus will be on the practical real world benefits of adding Groovy and its related projects to your tool chest.
In the second talk, Jianfeng Tian will do a case study of four greenfield projects that he has successfully completed at LSE using Grails, the Groovy based web framework.
