About the Reviewers

Chanwit Kaewkasi is a lecturer at the School of Computer Engineering, Suranaree University, Thailand, where he received his BEng (First-class honours) in Computer Engineering. He received MEng in computer engineering from Chulalongkorn University, Thailand. Currently, he is doing a PhD in computer science at the University of Manchester, United Kingdom. His research involves an aspect-oriented approach to performance improvement of a dynamic language.

Chanwit has been an active contributor to the Groovy and Grails community since 2006. He was the very first committer of the Grails plugin project, where he maintains two of them—XFire and ZK plugin for Grails. In 2008, he joined the Google Summer of Code program for the development of a just-in-time compiler for Groovy.

Guillaume Laforge is the project lead of Groovy, the highly popular and successful dynamic language for the JVM. He co-authored Manning's bestseller "Groovy in Action" with Dierk König, and is working for SpringSource (a division of VMWare) where he's working full time on cool and Groovy stuff. You can meet Guillaume at conferences around the world where he evangelizes the Groovy dynamic language, Domain-Specific Languages in Groovy, and the agile Grails web framework.

Rob F. Castellow is the president of PAC Enterprises LLC, a contract and development company responsible for providing quality professional services. He has provided services in the development of several J2EE-based projects for large corporations in the telecommunications and financial services sectors.

Rob graduated in 1998 with a Masters in Electrical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and began his career developing embedded systems. Rob soon found that all the excitement was in developing enterprise systems and has been working on J2EE-based applications ever since.

Rob is an enthusiast of new technologies. When he is not proofreading books on Groovy DSLs, he can be found developing Grails applications, attending user groups, reading books, managing/developing several websites, or playing with his two sons.
