October 2009 Meeting - Getting to Know (Spring) Roo!

For our October 2009 meeting, we will have an introductory look into  Spring Source's Roo.  What is Roo you may ask?  Roo is a sophisticated
(really is) roundtrip, productivity boosting,  code generator to create Java/Spring applications.  Think of Roo as Rails / Grails for
pure Enterprise Java development with lots of cool features not found in those frameworks.

Our own RJ Salicco just came back from SpringOne in New Orleans and will be presenting and discussing Roo and other cool Spring Source Tools that you may want to check out.  Roo is all about command prompts, so bring your own laptop and follow along as we create a new application right before your eyes.  Come join us as there will be food and give away prizes.

Java applications in minutes (not hours).
