Agile Development is all about developing code and seeking feedback from your users to make sure you’re developing what’s relevant. When changes are suggested, they must be affordable and reliable.

Grails, along with its facility to develop test driven, is a killer combination for rapidly developing web applications. In this ZePo (Zero PowerPoint) presentation, Venkat took a test driven approach to developing a small, but, fully functional web application in Grails. Venkat covered the fundamental features of Grails along with utilising other capabilities like Ajax. At the end of this presentation Grails eXchange delegates were not only confident, but eager to roll their own web applications using Grails.
