Grails in the Cloud! - Monthly Groovy and Grails Meetup

  • May 8, 2012 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Topic: Grails in the Cloud!

Always wanted to know what the buzz is about PaaS, including platforms like CloudFoundry, Jelastic, Heroku, CloudBees, OpenShift or Elastic Beanstalk, this is your evening to find out. 

The goal of the night is to learn about these platforms, get some hands-on experience, and share your experience with the group

[masked] Welcome and food
[masked] Presentation - Introduction to Cloud, IaaS, PaaS and Saas by Maikel Alderhout
[masked] Hands on - Deploy a Grails application* to the cloud in small groups
[masked] Knowledge - Share your experience with the group

No preparation is needed. We'll deliver the application, and make sure you're up to speed in seconds! It is a good idea to bring your laptop. You can always pair up with others.

Quince has kindly offered to share their great location in Amsterdam with us again! Much appreciated, thanks!

Kind regards,

Erik Pragt


* = Application will be a Grails application, delivered by us. No experience with Grails is needed, but it might be helpful ;-)

    Another great meetup. First a good introduction presentation about Cloud technologies and terms by Maikel Alderhout. Followed by a hands-on experience with different PAAS providers for deploying a Grails application. I was in the group that used Heroku and it was a good experience. Really something I want to look into more closely. Afterwards each group gave a recap of the experiences so far and most PAAS providers really gets your app up and running quickly.
