This Week in Grails (2012-30)

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Not one, not two, but three Groovy releases happened this week. How are we supposed to keep up with all of these? 🙂

The DailyGrailsTip Twitter account has been consistently interesting with one tweet a day of useful Grails tips. Follow the account if you haven’t yet.

Tomás Lin pointed out that AppFog announced their pricing and it looks compelling – there’s even a free option. It looks like a solid option for hosting Grails apps, with an option for 24/7 support.

This week was a bit slow news-wise, but I’m sure there will be a lot of interesting stuff from GR8Conf US for next week’s post.

If you want to keep up with these “This Week in Grails” posts you can access them directly via their category link or in an RSS reader with the feed for just these posts.
