If you want to learn everything about Groovy and Grails, get in touch with all the projects committers and contributors, and have a great time, you should definitely not miss the Groovy / Grails Experience that will take place in Reston, VA, USA -- February 21 - 23, 2008

There's a pretty impressive list of speakers, and the session schedule looks pretty tasty. It's the best opportunity to get the right information straight from the horse's mouth. A lot of topics will be covered, ranging from introductions to Groovy / Grails up to more advanced topics like DSLs, design patterns in dynamic languages, Java integration, Swing UIs, GORM, and more.

The conference is on February 21st-23rd, so there's not much time left to get ready and register. But courtesy of G2One, the Groovy/Grails professional services company, and NFJS, if you register with the promo code 2gx2008g2one, you'll even get a $150 discount!
