Ajax development with the Yahoo! UI Library and Grails
Yahoo! is a company that eats its own dog food. They open sourced the Ajax code that drives many of their own websites, including their eponymous homepage, Yahoo! Mail, and Yahoo! News. Come see first hand how the various pieces of the library work together as a seamless whole.
The YUI library is included with the Grails web framework. It certainly works in all of the major frameworks as well, but the easy bootstrapping of Grails combined with the power of YUI library makes for the quickest way to get started with a minimum of hassle. No previous Groovy or Grails experience is required, so come to learn a little about all of these. Any experience JEE developer will feel right at home since Grails uses Spring and Hibernate under the covers.
