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.

Bake Your Blog with JBake and GitHub

02 September 2015Christopher J. Stehno


Ever wanted to have a blog of your very own, but didn’t want to deal with hosting providers or someone else owning your content data? GitHub-Pages provide a great way to serve up your blog content for free and JBake gives you the tools you need to make content management painless. This talk will show you how it’s done, which is also how it was done for the DFW Groovy & Grails User Group web site.


The slides from the presentation are available for download.
