It’s been a hundred years since I last blogged, but I’m now officially “back on the horse” for blogging in ’09. The reason is that Grails In Action has gone into copy and technical edits, so I have most of my life back! If you’re keen to get a feel for what Grails can do, go grab the sample chapter to learn Grails in a hurry! We’re on track to have the final one available for a book signing at JavaOne, but you can sign up early and get the PDFs as they develop.
I’m also super excited that Sven and I will be hosting a Grails Podcast “Groovy and Grails BOF” at JavaOne 2009. It looks like it’s going to be on the Thursday night, so keep it free for a fun night of Groovy, Grails, and free stuff! I’m staying at the Sir Francis Drake hotel in SF, so if you’re a Groovy/Grails hacker in town for JavaOne we should catch up for Breakfast!
Writing a book sucks up an insane amount of time, so I’m looking forward to spending the rest of the year tidying up a slew of half finished projects. Full of ideas for groovyblogs v2, and have tons of ideas for an updated version of Gravl (the blogging software that powers this blog).
But first it’s time for some downtime… Off to feed my chickens….
