This Week in Grails (2011-49)

This week’s big event was the 5th annual Groovy & Grails eXchange at Skills Matter in London. With two tracks and over 20 talks there was a lot going on, and having concurrent tracks meant making some touch choices in a couple of slots about which talk to attend. But luckily Skills Matter is great about recording talks and were cranking them out in record time – announcing most published talks during the session that followed them. Click through to the talk abstracts in the conference schedule to get to each of the videos.

Next year’s conference has already been announced; it will be December 12th and 13th. The first 50 tickets are only £95, so what are you waiting for?

My talk was an intermediate/advanced Spring Security plugin talk – see it here and check out the corresponding blog post for the slides and sample application.

Like any conference there was a lot of Twitter activity; here are some of the ones I found interesting:

p.s. this is the 1st anniversary of the beginning of this series – I know it’s trite to say, but I can’t believe it’s been a year already.
