This training is designed to quickly move teams beyond the basics and on to the most powerful aspects of both Groovy and Grails. Students should expect intensive, hands-on interactive lab work.

This Groovy & Grails training is the only official Grails.org and Groovy.codehaus.org training in the world and is taught by real Groovy & Grails experts from Skills Matter's community!

-Write programs using Groovy

-Integrate with Java

-Add dynamic functionality using Groovy

-Use Grails for Web development and persistence

-Ensure reliable Grails applications through unit and integration testing

-Have a sound knowledge of all the core concepts from the Web to the persistence layer

-Move beyond the basic scaffolding mechanisms to build robust applications

-Understand key development best practices that enable the development of higher quality code

Expert: Peter Ledbrook

Peter is one of the core Grails committers and he has been developing with Grails since version 0.2 (give or take 0.1). He created the GWT Grails plugin as an exercise to see whether it was possible, but it has since grown into something that can support serious development. He is currently using it in his own project.
