TechWeekend 8: Web Development Frameworks – Rails, Grails, Django

TechWeekend #8 (#tw8) this Saturday will focus on Web Development Frameworks. We have the following talks lined up, and one more is likely to get added in the next day or two

  • Grails, and other web development techniques in Groovy, by Saager Mhatre
  • Interesting new things in Rails3, by Gautam Rege
  • “A Django Case-Study: Use of advanced features of Django in http://wogma.com” by Navin Kabra. This talk will be structured in such a way that people who are not familiar with Python/Django might find the features interesting; while Django developers will be interested in how they were implemented in Django.

TW8 will be this Saturday, 19th March, from 10am to 2pm, at the Sumant Moolgaonkar Auditorium, Ground Floor, A Wing, ICC Trade Center, SB Road.

Microsoft wants to get more closely involved with the tech community in Pune, and particularly the open source enthusiasts – with the intention of making everybody aware that their cloud technologies (like Azure) actually play well with open source, and that you can deploy your php applications, your drupal/joomla installs on Azure.

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.

About the Speaker – Harshad Oak

Harshad is the founder of Rightrix Solutions and editor IndicThreads.com. He is the author of 3 books on Java technology and several articles. For his contributions to technology and the developer community, he has been recognized as an Oracle ACE Director and Sun Java Champion.
