@JacobAae talked at GR8Conf about his experience teaching Groovy and Grails Course at University of Souther Denmark.
I am looking forward to the video of this talk to come out. Slides are not the best media for such a talk where I assume he reflects about the lessons learned. However, I did not want to miss the opportunity to point out that fortunately Groovy and Grails are appearing in academia.
@goeh talk at GR8Conf shows how to communicate with events in Grails. Grails 3 includes event support based on the Reactor library. The slides are a great introduction of events in Grails 3 and contain some nice code examples about how to trigger and receive events. How to consume event replies or event trigger events after commits.
I attended @goeh talk at Greach, Cut your application to pieces . I was amazed by the incredible separation of concerns that he has achieved with the use plugins in Grails. I imagine he is working in migrating every plugin to grails 3 and taking advantage of events in Grails 3. That will be the cherry on top of the cake.
