Get Going with Grails Workshop

A session at Central Iowa Software Symposium

Sunday 5th August, 2012

2:15pm to 3:45pm (CST)

Build a small but nontrivial Grails application from start to finish in this half-day workshop. We'll start with domain classes, apply constraints, add controllers and services, apply both unit and integration tests, and then add additional functionality through plugins. If time is available, we'll map to an existing database, incorporate existing Java and Groovy classes, and even discuss plugin development.

This rapid introduction to Grails will take advantage of the newest features of Grails 2.0 using the interactive scripts and db console. In addition to building an application, existing samples will be reviewed as a source of good practices and plugins.

Some knowledge of Groovy is assumed but not required.
