If a book as horrible as Twilight can sell millions of copies and be made into an even worse movie, how many copies can a book with Groovy vampires sell? (Spoiler: Not as many.) Yes, this topic may be silly, but the technologies used (Groovy, Ratpack, MongoDB, Grails, REST) are (un)deadly serious.
This talk uses a Groovy REST client to download movie data in JSON format, stores the data in a Mongo database, and serves it up later using both Ratpack and Grails. Learn a wide range of Groovy techniques to make your applications sparkle! (No, please, please don't do that.)
