This Week in Grails (2011-46)

Sunday, November 20th, 2011

Devoxx and the first Australian Gr8Conf were this week, and both generated a lot of Twitter activity – see #gr8conf and #devoxx.

Be sure to get your ticket for the Groovy & Grails eXchange in London if you haven’t already, it’s coming up in just 3 weeks.

I wrote a couple more blog posts; check out Hibernate Bags in Grails 2.0 and Dynamic Controllers in Grails

I heard a rumor that Grails 2.0 RC2 might be released this week 🙂

If you want to keep up with these “This Week in Grails” posts you can access them directly via their category link or in an RSS reader with the feed for just these posts.
