Wow, the Groovy/Grails community is really getting it together. First we had the launch of grailscrowd.com, which is a social networking site for Groovy/Grails people to connect with other Groovy/Grails people. The site is built on Grails and its only been up for a few days but aldready over 600 people registered. If you haven't done so do so! The source code for GrailsCrowd is also availabe at Github
Not to be outdown, however, Glen Smith has launched the Groovy Awards ! A site dedicated to nominating the best contributors and to the Groovy / Grails community. Awards up for grabs include Groovy / Grails t-shirts and other goodies. Check it out.
On my front, I know I have been rather inactive posting. Books are really all consuming beasts. I have given a go to twittering now and again about what I'm writing about, although I'm still not sure I "get" twitter.
