This Week in Grails (2011-25)

Monday, June 27th, 2011

Yesterday Graeme tweeted about some cool Grails startups, and it resulted in several replies from others also working on cool Grails startups. There’s a lot of interesting stuff going on:

Like most weeks there are several job listings to check out, but I wanted to point out one in particular (the first one in the list). I did some consulting before joining SpringSource and PQA (now a part of SRA International) in Charlottesville, VA was one of the places I worked with. I’m not sure if things have changed now that they’re part of a larger company, but when I worked with them the team was great to work with. Smart people, interesting problems, and as a bonus they’re working on saving the world working with air quality and carbon offset trading. And Charlottesville is a beautiful city. If you’re looking and are nearby or interested in relocating I highly recommend checking them out.
