April 2012 Meeting: Real World Groovy on Grails

Our next meeting will be on April 17th. You can RSVP here.

The location was changed to Jak’s Tap at 901 West Jackson Boulevard. You can find it on Google Maps here.

Real World Groovy on Grails: Integrating Grails With The Outside World

In this talk, we’ll explore lessons learned from using Groovy on Grails to build several large(ish) real world projects that are part of the ScrewPile suite. Moving beyond trivial Grails intros, we’ll explore how to build Grails apps that do things like: send and receive JMS messages, publish and consume RSS feeds, use JAX-RS to expose REST endpoints, use scheduled jobs, integrate text search using Lucene, and parse content with Tika. This talk will feature NO slides, just actual code and demonstrations!

Also, for reference, here is the link from where he gave this talk previously at Tri-JUG.


Phillip Rhodes is a Senior Consultant with Open Software Integrators, who resides in Chapel Hill, NC.  A long time software developer and entrepreneur, Phillip is also the founder of Fogbeam Labs, and the originator of an Open Source “Enterprise 2.0″ suite known as ScrewPile. Phillip is avid fan of Open Source, “Semantic Web” technologies, and “alternate” JVM languages such as Groovy, Scala and Clojure; and has spoken at TriJUG multiple times in the past, and also organizes several Triangle area technology and entrepreneurship related groups, including RTP Hackers & Founders, TriJVM Hack Night and the RTP AI / Machine Learning / Semantic Web Meetup.

You can RSVP here.

    Please don’t call it “Groovy on Grails”, it’s just Grails. See http://burtbeckwith.com/blog/?p=1213

    Interesting, everybody I know still refers to Grails as “Groovy on Grails” and I’ve kept with that convention mostly just out of habit. I think everybody knows what you mean in either case, which is what I really care about; but sure, if it matters to people, feel free to drop the “Groovy on” part of the title.
