NCDevCon May 22nd – 23rd

In case you haven’t heard NCDevCon is on for this spring in Raleigh, NC. This is a FREE conference that covers Flex, Air, Coldfusion, and other web technologies. For more information visit: www.ncdevcon.com.

I was lucky enough to be included on the speaking agenda, and it is a real honor. They always have great speakers and awesome sessions. This year my topic will be “Rapid Development and Prototyping with Grails and Flex.” I am very excited about this topic as it brings together two technologies that I really enjoy.

I always found Java to be very heavy on the configuration side and it made creating prototypes and quick applications very tedious. I have nothing against Java, but rather all the configuration. Awhile back I discovered the Groovy language and the Grails framework. I can actually say that Groovy is an enjoyable language to work with. I have only begun to discover the power of the language and I only get to work with it on my own, as my employer is a strict Java shop. But now I am working with the Grails framework and Flex and I am finding a renewed joy in coding once again. I hope you will join me on this journey of learning at NCDevCon.

See you all in May!
