The session at this month's Java meet is a discussion on Groovy and
the Grails web framework. Register for the meet @

Outline -
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
connect and 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
Groovy & Grails, it's current state in India and its future prospects.

Speaker -
Harshad Oak is the founder of Rightrix Solutions and editor of
IndicThreads.com. He is the author of 3 internationally acclaimed
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 a Sun Java Champion.
