Intro to the Grails 3 Framework for Java and Spring Developers.

September 13, 2017


Grails 3 is a high productivity web framework for the JVM. Grails 3 is built on top of Spring Boot. This session provides an introduction and overview of the framework for developers who are familiar with Spring. Because Grails 3 is built on top of Spring Boot, anything that you can do in Spring Boot you can also do in Grails 3. In addition to all of Spring Boot's capabilities, Grails 3 offers a whole lot of additional features and benefits that contribute to code simplicity and to developer productivity. This session will highlight many of the features offered by the framework which make Grails 3 a great framework for taking advantage of everything that Spring has to offer while also taking advantage of everything that a powerful and flexible convention over configuration framework has to offer. No prior Grails knowledge is necessary.
