This set of videos is a pretty good introductions into the Grails framework. It's not the most exciting and the guy on the left is a little annoying, but otherwise it gets the job done by teaching basics.

So, having the point+counter point style of discussion really falls on its face here.  ~14 minutes in, it would be nice to actually see an example, versus being interrupted by an overly-eager-yet-pointless outburst from a co-chair.  

Why are you interrupting a decent pointer and discussion point, to hear yourself talk?

F- on what could be A grade stuff.
