Title: GORM Data Services
Presented By: Jeff Brown

About the Presentation: GORM is the powerful ORM tool that has been developed as part of the Grails web framework. GORM fully leverages the capabilities of Groovy to provide a rich set of capabilities which greatly simplify interacting with databases from any JVM application, not just Groovy and Grails applications as recent versions of GORM are very easy to use independent of Grails.

This session will introduce GORM and quickly get into details which highlight what has made GORM so successful, including an exploration of GORM Data Services which allow most of your data access layer to be written as interfaces with no classes necessary as GORM is able to generate most of the database interaction bytecode at compile time. I will also introduce GORMís flexibility with respect to communication with fundamentally different types of datastores including relational databases, graph databases, document stores and more.
About the Presenters: Jeff Brown is an OCI Grails Practice Lead, Grails co-founder and member of the OCI Core Grails Development team, Jeff Scott Brown has been doing JVM application development for as long as the JVM has existed and has spent most of the last decade focused specifically on work related to the Grails framework. Jeff has co-authored The Definitive Guide To Grails Second Edition and The Definitive Guide To Grails 2 with Grails founder and OCI Grails Development Lead, Graeme Rocher. Jeff is also a regular public speaker on Grails, Groovy, and other JVM related technologies.
