This Week in Grails (2012-44)

The big news of this week was the Grails 2.2 RC2 release. Please try out RC2 soon and help us to find issues before the GA release.

The Grails48 hackathon is this weekend, Nov 9-11th, 2012.

Mr Haki wrote a book: Gradle Effective Implementation Guide.

A couple of videos from GR8Conf US were released this week: Ken Kousen’s log.rofl(‘Fun with Groovy metaprogramming’) and Rob Fletcher’s Grails Fields plugin

The 2012 Groovy & Grails Exchange is coming up soon – only one month away. I’ll be doing two talks and am really looking forward to it; the conference is one of the best and London is a cool city.

The Greach site has been updated for the 2013 conference in January. Get your tickets now for 90€ until November 30th when the prices go up, and if you have an idea for a talk send it in – the call for papers is still open.

I did a blog post this week: Grails SQL Logging part 2 – groovy.sql.Sql.
