I’ve just attended SPRINGONE 2GX 2013: THE SPRING, GROOVY, GRAILS, & CLOUD EVENT OF THE YEAR in Santa Clara, CA. Some of the more memorable sessions this year included topics such as Grails Plugins and Security in Grails Applications.
I’ve been working extensively with Groovy and Grails recently and am very excited about their feature-set. There is alot of promise in this new platform and my development using it will continue for years to come. I’ve already built numerous dynamic applications using Groovy and Grails which have been deployed into a production environment successfully. Grails scaffolding is very useful to get up and running by generating controllers and views. Additionally, jQuery, which is included in the Grails stack, is the perfect compliment to integrate with services asynchronously to retrieve queries as JSON.
