Interview with Graeme Rocher about Grails

Fully formatted shownotes can always be found at http://javaposse.com -

Graeme is one of the founders, and also the current project lead, of Grails (formerly Groovy on Rails), a high level, open source, web application framework built on coding by convention principles (like Ruby on Rails)

Again the sound quality of this interview is not as good as we would have liked. We had to fall back on the skype recording due to no fault of anyone involved - sometimes it just works out that way. However the speech is clear and the content (thanks to Graeme) is first rate.

Tim is Director for Java Tools at Sun Microsystems

And yes, we are aware that Dick sounds like he is recording from a bathroom in this interview - it was a misconfiguration of the microphone inputs and was not noticed until the interview had been completed.
