This Week in Grails (2012-01)

Graeme updated his blog and has committed to posting more often – check out the new digs.

Bobby Warner’s published a great screencast this week on using Grails 2.0 and Spring Security – Jump Into Grails 2.0

Jochen Theodorou wrote up an in-depth overview of the invokedynamic API. I think I may need to read this one a couple of times before it sinks in 🙂
