November 2008 Meeting Minutes

A great thanks to all of you who attended the November 2008 meeting on Java concurrency last Tuesday, Nov 18th.  This time the meeting's format was different: we all got to see Grails in action live from presenter RJ Salicco.  We walked through the development of a basic web application complete database, onfiguration, and GUI in about 1 hour.  Some attendees brought their laptops and participated right along with the presentation.


Looking forward to another exciting year in 2009.  Stay tuned!
