April 19th CJUG Meeting

The next Chicago Java Users Group Meeting is April 19th. Jeff Palmer of CGUG will talk about Groovy on Grails.

This talk will give a brief introduction to Grails. The goal of the talk is to help users get started and productive with Grails. The talk will demonstrate how to build a Grails app from start to finish. It will cover most of the core Grails components, including domain classes, controllers, scaffolding, GSP tags, GORM, services, Grails JavaScript and Ajax support, and URL mapping.

Groovy is a dynamic language that runs on the JVM. Grails is a web application framework written in Groovy that uses “convention over configuration” to build web applications quickly.

Jeff Palmer is an application developer for Follett Higher Education Group. Jeff has a MS in Computer Science from DePaul University and is a Sun certified Java 5 programmer. For the last three years he has been actively focused on alternative JVM languages, such as Groovy and Ruby, along with their respective web frameworks, Grails and Rails. Jeff is a co-founder of the Chicago Groovy User Group.
