Groovy/Grails Training in North America

Apologies for not posting as frequently recently, I've been hard at work on the second edition of "The Definitive Guide to Grails" and also working on feature development for Grails 1.1 (we now have JSP tag library support in GSP and massive improvements to the plug-in system).

Nevertheless, on to the topic of this post, we (G2One Inc - The Groovy/Grails company) have launched our public Groovy & Grails training programme in the US. Announcing this exciting news is Jeff Brown, our main guy in the US, who has this to say:

"Our training events are a fantastic experience. G2One are the folks who lead and sustain the development of both Groovy and Grails. No one understands the technology better than the people who build it. G2One training events give developers an opportunity to spend several days with a technology expert covering everything from fundamentals to advanced language and framework features.

The sessions include a perfect mix of lecture and reinforcing lab work. That hands on approach is a great way for developers to internalize the details. There is no better way to quickly get a team up and running with the technology."
