GR8Conf are conferences about all the great technologies based on or using Groovy in a way or another. So in other words, that's the grooviest conference you can find, where developers and leads of all the famous Groovy-based projects deliver the latest news and updates about their projects. So be sure to come, learn with them, engage with the community, tell about your usage of those technologies (Grails, Gradle, Griffon, Spock, Gaelyk, etc.)
GR8Conf Europe and GR8Conf US have their Call for Paper still open, for less than a week. So if you haven't yet submitted your proposals, please hurry up!
We're looking forward to having you here!
