This Week in Grails (2011-40)

Monday, October 10th, 2011

Cédric Champeau has added a new Groovy Enhancement Proposal (GEP) for static type checking. This is for an optional stricter “grumpy” mode of Groovy similar to Groovy++ where the compiler will generate more warnings and errors to give developers feedback about problems earlier than if they were in traditional Groovy.

Lots of job activity this week, including five listings at Taulia in San Francisco.

Only two more weeks until SpringOne/2GX – it should be another great conference this year.
