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.



  • Read Testimonials from Grails users who have experienced Grails first hand!
archives and post new questions/ideas to the community!
  • Come and chat to us on IRC at where most Grails developers can be found in the #groovy room
  • Write a Blog post about Grails, or even a Tutorial! Just talking about your experiences with Grails can either help others get involved or provide constructive feedback to the Grails team.
  • Look at other OpenSource Projects based on Grails or opensource your own project
  • Follow what is happening with Grails now and in the future with the Grails Issue Tracker and on the Roadmap. Or even better checkout the latest commits!
