The initial two-year partnership is realized by a programmer funded by CSS but reporting to and housed in RAC-IS. We will talk about the partnership's foundation, mission, roadmap, and accomplishments to date, and demonstrate some of the resulting work.

Advantages of Groovy and Grails
Presenter: Soeren Glasius
Location: 103 Genetics & Plant Biology (GPB)Join the session online or via phone: 
1) Dial: 408-740-7256 or 888-240-2560 2) Enter Conference ID: 553942577

Groovy is a powerful, optionally typed and dynamic language, with static-typing and static compilation capabilities. It runs on the Java platform (JVM) and is in many ways a superset of Java. The learning curve for the average Java coder is described as a "small speed bump" while the powers are described as "Java on Steroids."

Grails is a web-framework built on the "shoulders of giants". It acts as an easy, yet powerful layer on top of Spring MVC, Hibernate and Sitemesh. It aims at developer speed by applying "convention over configuration," sensible defaults and easy access to common functionality. It integrates easily with application containers (like Tomcat) on the JVM. Grails has a lively plugin community, where a wide variety of common functionality is captured. Previous knowledge of Java, C, C++, PHP, Python or other programming languages is an advantage.up arrow
