What to Learn and Use from Gr8Conf 2012 Europe

Going to Gr8Conf is great! You can meet all the good people that develop those amazing Groovy products and projects. You get to learn a lot during 2 (or 3) days which are packed with very informative presentations. Also the fact that you don't have to worry about the "problems-at-the-office" your mind gets into gear. And for me that always results in a new burst of energy and ideas.

Here is my short list from the conference sessions:

  • Do a project with Griffon
  • Learn more about Vert.x
  • Learn more about Betamax
  • Use Geb on projects


And then my mind started to wonder off:

  • Create a new site with categorization and search options for the now time-sorted blog posts from Groovy/Grails/Gradle Goodness
  • Work on book with Groovy snippets from Groovy Goodness blog posts. Someone mentioned Leanpub, which looks promising.
  • Implement with real educational material for people to learn Groovy (Grails, Gradle, Spock)
  • See if "Koans" can help with Gr8labs. I know there is already a Groovy Koans out there.
