Grails is one of the fastest growing web frameworks, and as Brighton has many meet ups for other frameworks and programming languages including Rails and Python, so we thought that it was time that there would be one for Grails and Groovy. Another important reason is the creator of Grails, Graeme Rocher, has just moved down to Brighton.

At the meet up, Graeme will demonstrate the speed of developing in the framework by building a Twitter clone in less than 40 minutes. There will also be discussions and networking.

This event is aimed at anybody interested in the Grails and Groovy. The event is free, but places are limited. If you are based in London, Brighton is only 1 hour away by train and the Historic Regency Town House is only ashort bus ride away from the train station.

Danny Hope of #UXBRI (the meetup for User Experiance in Brighton) has kindly arranged for us to use the historic Regency Town house.
Feralabs is helping to organise this event and will provide some beer and wine. Visit their blog to find out more http://blog.feralabs.com/
