We are very happy to announce we have been commissioned to develop a very exciting project that’s causing a lot of buzz here at Tucanoo Towers. Without going into detail all I can say is we’ll be utilising Grails to develop a scalable back end service to complement a mobile app with social and business functionality.

I’d love to be able to give more juicy details away at this stage as what we’re working on has the potential to be HUGE… think FourSquare scale, then think bigger… but at this stage everything is under wraps and will be till close to product launch so watch this space…

With the extremely rapid rapid application development benefits provided by Grails,  It can be tempting to feel you have learned nearly everything you need to know by the time you’ve got your first web app up linked to a database with full CRUD facilities and error handling ready.  I’m sure you were as impressed with the speed of development as I was when I created my first Grails app.

At such a point it can be very tempting to just rush straight into your next project,  however you absolutely must continue your learning path and look over the excellent documentation  otherwise you be will missing out on some of the finer features provided by Grails and the Groovy language.
