Get Involved!

Grails has a growing following and if you want to get involved the developers are all nice people (promise!) who are keen to have ideas, code and just about anything contributed. There are a number of ways to get involved with the Grails community, you can:

  • Read Testimonials from Grails users who have experienced Grails first hand!
  • Take a look at the Mailing lists archives and post new questions/ideas to the community!
