Welcome Glen and Peter, hope your book rocks as much the framework itself.

Hi Guys,

Great to be hanging out here for a few days. We hope people really enjoy the book!

@Vivek, we worked really hard to make the book fun and productive with an "in the trenches" vibe -- so hopefully it captures the spirit of Grails!

Glen.

Welcome Glen and Peter!

Vladimir: In case that was a serious question, the answer is to post in any thread in this forum (except this one doesn't count) and hope the random program likes you!

Hopefully, I will remember this request later this week ...

Regardless, if I don't, and you happen to win, just let me know -- I can pull the next name from the generated list then.
