The goal of this tutorial is to get started and get productive with Grails. We’ll do this by jumping right in and building an application, from design to deployment.
Rather than try to learn Grails feature by feature, we’ll let it unfold as we build the application. We’ll begin with a simple application structure that runs right out of the box, then we’ll gradually build our application while building our knowledge of Grails.
When we’re done, you’ll have learned about:
This is an introduction, but it is also a deep dive. So come prepared to code and to learn.
NOTE: Completed code samples will be available on CD or USB drive at the conference, but please be
sure that Grails and Java are both installed before coming to the class. Further instructions may be found here.
