Guillaume will speak about Gaelyk, a lightweight Groovy toolkit for easily developing Groovy applications to be deployed on Google App Engine Java.
We'll learn more about what the toolkit provides, how to leverage it for your own needs through some demos, demonstrating views and templates, URL route definitions, plugins, the many shortcuts to the App Engine APIs, the very readable Query DSL to query the datastore.
