Nem, Very nice! I have bookmarked the Grails web app. Do you have any comments regarding how development went? Any lessons learned to tell? 

HI Mike, 

the development was pretty smooth. All together about 9 hours of work :) Grails spoiled me big time. Oh, and Twitter Bootstrap as well. I don't think I will use anything else besides twitter bootstrap for my css framework ever again!

Anyway, the web app is hosted on appfog which is another life saver for smaller java applications. Their free tier gives you 2GB of RAM which is plenty for running jvm.

As far as the android app, I used phone gap. But i think we had a thread about the phone gap, so I won't go into details. 

The app communicates with the web app pulling the events data in JSONP format. One thing I learned is that you must specify JSONP data type when using phone gap or any other cross domain ajax calls. 

Anyway, thanks for checking it out!

Nem, This would be a great case study for GatorJUG. Let's talk! /mike

Yea sure I'd be glad to talk about it. When is the next meeting?

I'm just about to reserve a venue for 12 months of 2013 on the second Wed of each month! <hint>Call for speakers...</hint>

I'd be glad to talk about my projects. I have another project that i think would be very interesting to talk about. It is another Grails project that uses atmosphere https://github.com/Atmosphere/

That sounds good, Nem. Thanks. Of the three, the Grails app would be first case study choice, the Android app second and the Atmosphere app third. That is, unless you'd like to talk about them as 2 case studies: the Grails/Android G'Ville Events apps and the Atmosphere app. We get the best turnout with more standard presentations these days, rather than very unique topics.

The next GatorJUG meeting is Wed, January 9th.

Let's do the Gainesville Events Grails app only then. 

Perfect. If you give me a bio and abstract, I'll do the rest. Second Wed of Jan is 1/9.
