I have been meaning to do a write-up on the Grails eXchange 2007, a great conference hosted by my former employers Skills Matter.
Overall the conference was great, it had the feel of some of the No Fluff events I've been to and it was awesome to have so many people passionate about Groovy & Grails in the same place.
Some of the highlights for me were seeing the amazing JetGroovy plug-in in action demo'ed by JetBrains, Meeting the awwwesome (pronounced with a proper ozzy accent of course) Glen Smith (the man behind Groovy blogs) and his presentation entitled "The Whole Nine Yards" and the general networking and social aspect.
Now its back to focusing on getting Grails 1.0 out. My current focus is not on code, but on improving our documentation. Stay tuned.
