End of the year roundup

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — Björn Wilmsmann @ 6:33 pm

I really like the final days of a year. Everybody seems to be busy getting things done, accomplishing as much as possible and buttoning everything up so open issues don’t reach on to the next year.

The Internet and software business is no exception. The end of the year being nigh seems to provide most people – customers and developers alike – with that little extra focus.

This applies to our own business as well as open source projects like Groovy and Grails who have been – or in case of the Grails guys – who still are busy getting out their latest and greatest version before the holiday break with its plentiful meals sets in. We also did our fair share by contributing a new version of the Grails Shopping Cart plugin a few days ago.

Anyway, even the Internet world seems to revolve at a slower pace towards the end of the year (even if only slightly so), which is a welcome and pleasant break that allows you to refocus on what’s truly important.

Wishing you all a happy holiday season and all the best for 2010.

Update: While I was writing these lines, the Grails guys have released a new version of the formidable web framework.
