For those who don't already know (like the hoards that attended RailsConf), I have taken up the position of CTO at a company called Skills Matter.
Skills Matter specialize in training and skills transfer activities around Open Source technologies and this is actually how I got introduced to the Skills Matter crew. Yes, there are up and coming training courses about Groovy and Grails on the horizon.
Beyond that I'm also responsible for our further technical direction and training strategy. In plain english, what this means is that I'll be involved closely with the Open Source community to make training courses around a diverse range of technologies a reality.
In fact if you are a project lead of an Open Source project that you feel would benefit from a training course or are aware of a particular training need around Open source drop me a line.
A further implication of me being an employee of Skills Matter is that they have become an official backer of an Open Source project by allowing me to continue working on Grails when I can. All and all a win win situation!
