Dublin Groovy User Group

Grails - Workshop & Presentation

 

 

TCube_330x330.pngTonight, we're gonna have ourselves such a good time as the Dublin Groovy User Group hosts a Grails workshop - starting at 19:00 the group will give a brief intro into Grails, and formulate future workshops of your choice, giving book titles and references to follow up with.

 

 

After a short break for beers and pizza, kindly sponsored by Des and @padraigosca of start-up @Taskmessenger, they will outline the reasons why they chose Grails and how they implemented the technology to build Task Messenger.

 

 

In 2012, Des and Padraig cofounded Task Messenger, a task-sharing tool to help teams work together more efficiently. Having worked as a software engineer for over 5 years, Padraig has seen and been forced to use lots of different work tracking and project management software. He hated each and every one of them, finding that all had a steep learning curve and required too much information from the user, meaning that they all ended up hindering rather than benefiting projects.

 

With Des, who has a Project Manager (PMP) qualification and over 15 years of experience working on technical solutions for large multi-nationals, Padraig has designed and implemented cloud based Task Messenger to be user-friendly so users can quickly share and pick up tasks without taking time from their day to day duties.

 

 

Their grails presentation will focus on

  • The background to Task Messenger, dumping flash builder and going for Grails.
  • A quick walkthrough of Task Messenger
  • Responsive frontend - leveraging Twitter Bootstrap
  • Spring Security Core Plugin (Standard login and authentication)
  • Spring Security UI Plugin (Admin console & Sending invites, re-setting passwords)
  • Creating a task (private versus public)
  • Drag and drop
  • Auto-updating using AJAX & jQuery
  • Creating a team (Real life work scenario where people are stretched across multiple teams/projects)
  • The Drop Box API
  • The Google Drive API
  • Setting up the chat
  • Reporting functionality (Jasper Plugin)
  • Setting up the project on AWS
  • Q & A

 

 

@PubStandardsDub is also on in the Bull & Castle to round the evening off in a style of sorts!
