Java/J2EE looking for something better but not sure if you can sell paying the price of a new language/framework? Not sure if Grails will work in YOUR environment?
In this session we will talk about real world application of grails in an enterprise, lessons learned and best practices.
Todd is a 15 year veteran of the Java development and has 4 years of professional Grails development experience. He is currently the V.P. of Engineering for VirtualTourist.com a TripAdvisor Media Group Company. In 2008, VirtualTourist.com was acquired by TripAdvisor/Expedia(EXPE), and Todd was brought in to lead a team of Java/Groovy/Grails engineers in the redevelopment effort. A graduate of the University of Arizona, with a B.S. in Computer Engineering, and an MBA from ASU with an emphasis on management of the creative software engineering process. When he is not actively writing code for his own startup ideas, you will find him entertaining his daughters or getting lost in a glass of wine, both of which usually lead to other crazy coding ideas like this one: "What would happen if I did a screencast of writing the same web application in eight different languages?" -- www.betterwebapp.comMore About Todd »
