Sun Tech Days 2008

I'm currently attending the Sun Tech Days conference in Sydney. These events can be good for exposure to things not already on your radar, and also for catching up with colleagues you haven't seen for a while.

Some of the presentations are online if you are interested.

There is a session on 'Grails as an application framework: pros and cons' tomorrow - but so far there has no mention of Groovy or Grails (but plenty of references to JRuby, Ruby, Python, PHP, Javascript).

Update 1 :

  • Mike Cannon-Brookes presented Grails - this was a good introduction for anyone new to Grails. It appears he is very enthusiastic about it and Atlassian are using it to some extent internally.
