Details: Groovy – Grails Discussion
The Groovy language and the Grails framework have slowly but surely grown in prominence. Grails uses the best ideas from the Ruby on Rails world while still continuing to leverage the tried, tested and trusted Java platform as well as established frameworks like Spring and Hibernate. However there has been hardly any community behind Groovy and Grails in India. The Java meet for this month is an attempt to facilitate discussion amongst Groovy and Grails enthusiasts in Pune & India.
The Groovy – Grails meet will commence with a Grails introduction and demo by Harshad Oak. This will be followed by a discussion about the Groovy & Grails, it’s current state in India and its future prospects.

1 thought on “Groovy Grails Discussion (Linux and Java meet – Sept 6)”
I wrote a blog post Java vs. Ruby on Rails that I thought you might enjoy. Unfortunately, I don’t have any experience with Groovy or Grails so I couldn’t include them in my discussion.
