I am a consultant working with what I likes best: Groovy and Grails. I have worked in the Java world for over 17 years, and have a gr8 passion for Groovy, Grails, Griffon and the other gr8 technologies. I am also the co-founder of GR8Conf and your friendly organizer of GR8Conf Europe… In 2009 Guillaume Laforge and I founded the GR8Conf. It was a gr8 success – with over 150 attendees from 17 countries around the world. Now ten years later, GR8Conf can be found in USA and India, and it is still growing stronger.
