Like other bloggers with an ego, I have Google Alerts set up to let me know when someone mentions me or my blog anywhere that Google knows about. I got an alert yesterday letting me know that I’d been mentioned on the latest episode of the Grails Podcast. How cool is that? Specifically, they mentioned my [cref groovy-sql-closure-examples Groovy Sql Closure Examples] post. Thanks, Glen and Sven, for the podcast love.
I’ve been spending some time with Grails latest and have been really impressed with it. I spent a couple of hours on Saturday playing with it, seeing how much of my Rails knowledge was applicable to Grails. Quite a bit of it, actually. I really like what I’ve seen of Grails, so far. I’d probably have to use it on a real project to really get a feel for it, but it looks like it would be a nice environment to work in.
