We are a group of users focused on expanding the breadth and depth of Groovy and Grails development skills with our members who live and work in the DFW area. Our meetings are on the 1st Wednesday of every month (social & food at 6:30pm, meeting content at 7:00pm) at the NEW Improving office in Plano.

General Announcement

Starting with the June 2017 meeting we will be focusing on introducing new members to Groovy. We will have a series of talks that will bring them up to speed on Groovy, Gradle, Grails and application development. Please bring your friend, neighbor and co-worker, especially if they are familiar with Java, as the ramp-up is very easy.

For a better I.

‘The greater supportive people judged their interactions to be, the bigger their personal growth tendencies, also in a lifestyle that puts even more focus on the collective as opposed to the specific,’ stated David Lee, the study’s business lead writer who obtained his doctorate in mindset at U-M. Overall, the results support the ‘I-through-We’ perspective, this means the public tendency for connecting with others, and the average person inclination to strive and grow mainly because individuals, aren’t exclusive and could augment and magnify one another mutually. ‘Quite simply, relationships usually do not necessarily issue with but help maintain one’s personal development,’ stated Oscar Ybarra, U-M professor of psychology and of organizations and management.Konstantinos Mantantzis, a Ph.D. College student from the School of Warwick’s Section of Mindset, commented: Over time, studies show that actively engaging with tough cognitive jobs is a prerequisite for the maintenance of cognitive wellness in older age group. As a result, the implications of uncovering the systems that determine old adults’ degrees of engagement can’t be understated. Dr. Friederike Schlaghecken, in the School of Warwick’s Section of Mindset, commented: Our results provide us a stage nearer to understanding what motivates older adults to exert work and finding means of increasing their willingness to try hard even if an activity seems impossible to execute.
