If you are a Java developer considering a new web development project, you may well be tempted to try out Grails , one of the most promising new frameworks to hit the Java development scene over the last few years. And you would do well! But, as we all know, book learning and online tutorials can only take you so far.
If you are interested in learning about Groovy and Grails in more depth, and live in Colorado or Virginia, you would do well to take a look at the training courses offered by Scott Davis (author of Groovy Recipes: Greasing the Wheels of Java and Mastering Grails, both great books) and Andrew Glover (co-author of Groovy in Action and Practically Groovy, and all-round cool dude). The course material looks refreshing and up-to-date, and both of these guys really know their stuff.
Check it out!
