Some great Groovy/Grails news this week

Some really good Groovy and Grails news this week I wanted to mention (or better copy from Graeme Rocher's Blog)

First LinkedIn, a online network of more than 14 million experienced professionals from around the world, are looking for software engineers preferably with Groovy/Grails experience.

Then big ERP software giant SAP announced that they have released a new community driven product called Composition on Rails that allows you to use their SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment to quickly prototype applications using Groovy/Grails.

And today G2One Inc - the Groovy/Grails company was announced. G2One has been founded by Graeme Rocher (Grails Project Lead), Guillaume LaForge (Groovy Project Lead) and Alex Tkachman (Former JetBrains COO) to provide consultancy, training, support and products around Groovy & Grails. Personally I think offering commercial support etc. will help adoption signifantly. And with this Groovy/Grails can be developed further. This is the same as e.g. JBoss and Spring are offering great open source software for free, but still making money to constantly evolve this free software.
