Event Description

May be off-topic, but from the AgilePhilly Ruby on Rails presentation that Comcast did at the Oct 14th Agile Tour, I suggested that the Grails UG to talk about the same issue - using a legacy DB.

Ken Rimple and Ahsen Jaffer will present a talk on dealing with existing databases in Grails.

Presented by Ken Rimple, Director of Education Services at Chariot Solns & sponsor of their Techie-Podcasts, who is currently working on the book "Spring Roo in Action". Besides the upcoming Philly-Groovy meeting, he and his co-author Gordon Dickens are
presenting at ETE ( Philly Emerging Tech 4 Entrpz) April 27-28
Also of interest to Groovy/Grails people, Penn State Great Valley in Malvern is having a 7 week Intro course to Groovy and Grails.

The course is one night a week for 7 weeks, split between Groovy and Grails with 2 labs per session = 14 labs in total, and some homework besides.

Since it is Continuing Ed, there is no final exam ( and probably not a final project.)

$ 590 for the course that starts Tues March 8th
PSU Great Valley at Rte 202 and Rte 29 in Malvern is an a professional college - no undergrads allowed.
