Get_RAD_with_Grails

November 17, 2009 – Get RAD with Grails

Description

Grails is the ultimate Java rapid application development environment (RAD). Using the lightweight but powerful Groovy language sitting on top of the JVM, you can put together a complete application in a fraction of time as “normal” web-app development. This introductory session to Grails will cover the new Grails 1.2 release using lots of code examples. We’ll use The new Eclipse-Groovy/Grails plugin to create a complete app during the session. We’ll also use some of the \*hundreds\* of plugins available for Grails. These plugins offer easy-to-use features such as rich internet, security, clustering, etc.
\**\* We’ll be giving out free t-shirts and other goodies for those who attend.

Building and Deploying 12 Factor Apps in Scala and Java

June 20, 2017

The twelve-factor app is a modern methodology for building software-as-a-service apps:

• Use declarative formats for setup automation, to minimise time and cost for new developers joining the project.

• Have a clean contract with the underlying operating system, offering maximum portability between execution environments.

• Are suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms, obviating the need for servers and systems administration.

• Minimise divergence between development and production, enabling continuous deployment for maximum agility.

• And can scale up without significant changes to tooling, architecture, or development practices.

We will build a RESTful web service in Java and deploy the app to CloudFoundry. We will go over how to build a cloud manifest, how to keep our database credentials and application configuration outside of our code by using user-provided services and go over what it takes to build a 12 Factor application in the cloud. This presentation will be heavy on code and light on slides!
