From Concept to Live in 30 minutes

In today's times, when getting an application out before your competitor does is the need of the hour, rapid application development is a crucial element in building web apps. This is where Grails hits the sweet spot.

In this session, we will be working to build a production ready web app in about 30 minutes where we'll see how easy and quickly Grails allows us convert an idea into a running application. We will be using it's built in power of auto generated CRUD, large plugin repository, REST support, convention over configuration approach,auto reloading features among others to speed up our development experience all the while leveraging battle tested and proven Java frameworks like Spring and Hibernate.

The idea is to introduce the audience to a concept that building an app can happen as quickly as thinking over it.

Distributed systems with Grails and AKKA

In recent years, Software Development processes and implementations has seen huge shift. Especially with evolution of Cloud, we are seeing lots of software are now available as services (SaaS) and the trend shows that this is the direction, at least for the near future.

The traditional approach of Software Architecture was based on dedicated installations for a customer and the components of software were packaged as single unit. When the load on a particular component increased, the complete packaged unit needed to be scaled-up. This leads to wastage of resources.

In SaaS, and especially over the cloud, it is very important that we utilize the resources optimally. We must ensure that Architecture of the software is such that we are not just able to scale at component/service level, but the resources allocated to a component/service are consumed optimally. In the discussion, we will talk about how to leverage AKKA with Grails to achieve the desired architecture.

PowerUp Grails Web Development with OpenShift

Are you a Grails user or developer who want a quick and scalable infrastructure to deploy your Grails application? OpenShift is Red Hat's open source platform as a service that can run Grails applications with minimum fuss.

Come to this session to learn how to use Red Hat's open source public cloud platform to stand up Grails applications inside of EC2 in a matter of minutes. In this demo-driven session, we will first develop a Grails application using Eclipse Grails support, and then we will deploy the application on Apache Tomcat 7 running on OpenShift.

Best of all, OpenShift is free-as-in-beer and free-as-in-freedom which means you can deploy your Grails applications for no cost on OpenShift.

Responsive Web Design

The goal for responsive web design is two fold:

Firstly it supports one solution across all browser platforms thus enhancing reuse of both frontend and backend components. Secondly it gives the customer a fresh approach to web design: mobile first.

The practice of responsive web design is easy to understand but difficult to master. This presentation will give a real life use case showing both sides of the story.

Gone are the days to live with GSPs, time to date JSP. Really?

We have been working with GSPs in our typical Grails applications. But its always a problem bridging the gap between frontend and backend engineering. I will be sharing my experiences with managing this gap effectively via REST based architecture for your grails application.
