The final, objective truth of Rails versus Grails.

So it’s time to bring out the guns, boxing gloves and whatever martial arts knowledge you possess. If you want the full story, start with Graeme’s post here, and drill your way down from there.

I finally lost my patience with this discussion and decided that I should tell you all the truth. The final, totally objective, totally realistic answer to the question of Rails, Grails and Everything.

No, wait. I won’t!

And that’s it. This discussion is becoming a bit silly. I don’t expect someone will see me recommending Grails, and I’m sure we all would be very surprised seeing Graeme recommend JRuby on Rails. So what’s the point?

Grails eXchange, QCon SF and OpenWorld

It seems conference season is just coming up for me. I’ll actually not be presenting at any of these events – just attending, being marketing and so on. First of, I’ll run around at Grails eXchange in London next week as official ThoughtWorks representative. That is bound to be interesting.

I’ll also attend QCon in San Francisco from 5th to 9th November. Directly following that I’ll also be at Oracle’s OpenWorld event from 11th November to 15th November. I’ll have a fair amount of spare time in the evenings during the two weeks in San Francisco, so if anyone want to have a beer and discuss geeky things, feel free to mail me. Also, if anyone is interested in JRuby, I’m more or less always available to do talks on things like that.

Later on, I’ll also be at JavaPolis in Antwerp, Belgium, in December.

See you out there.
