This Week in Grails (2013-06)

Several videos from Greach 2013 are now available on their YouTube channel.

Marc Palmer has announced that he will no longer be supporting any of his plugins (at least not for free). We’re looking into what makes the most sense for moving forward, especially for the more popular plugins like resources. Several of them will be moved to shared Github repos so the community can easily contribute. Be sure to check out his Kickstarter campaign and contribute so the outstanding issues in the resources plugin can get fixed.

There are two excellent looking Grails training opportunities coming up in the next few months. One starts this week and is a 10-week seminar at UC Berkeley. The other is a 2-day seminar in Boston April 22nd – 23rd.

The Groovy team is looking into updating the Groovy documentation and web site.

Check out these two interesting Groovy wiki pages: Advanced compiler configuration and Meta-annotations.

Season 2 of the Spanish-language Podcast de GrailsMX is starting soon. It sure would be cool to have an English-language Groovy and Grails podcast 😉
