This Week in Grails (2012-48)

The 2012 Groovy & Grails Exchange is next week – better get your tickets before they sell out.

The early bird price for the Greach conference has been extended until December 12, so grab a ticket before the price goes up.

Peter Ledbrook left VMware last week. It’s obviously a big loss for us, but potentially your gain since you can now hire him as a consultant 🙂

I released a new plugin this week, app-info-hibernate and wrote a blog post about it and the updated db-reverse-engineer plugin.
