Recently I wanted to know how well positioned was Grails Brasil. Well, for my surprise, quite well! Taking in consideration the number of registered members, we are the largest Grails community on the planet!
Using as a base the list of user groups on the Grails official website (http://www.grails.org/User+Groups) and the number of registered members on the groups listed there, we can see that Grails Brasil is by far the largest one. Isn’t that neat?
So, here is the list based on the stats of september 5, 2009:
|Grails Community at OSUM
|Belgium Groovy and Grails User Group
|Montreal Groovy/Grails User Group
|Toronto Groovy and Grails User Group
|Vancouver Groovy and Grails User Group
|The Egyptian Groovy and Grails User Group
|French Grails User Group
|Indian Groovy and Grails User Group
|Mexico Groovy and Grails User Group
|Dutch Groovy & Grails User Group
|Philippine Groovy/Grails Users Group
|Russian Developer Group
|Groovy and Grails User Group Switzerland
|SweGUG – Groovy, Grails & Griffon User Group
|Thai Grails User Group
|Ukranian Grails User Group
|The London Groovy and Grails User Group
|The North West Grails User Group
|Chicago Groovy User Group
|SF Bay Groovy and Grails Meetup Group
|Groovy Users of Minnesota
|The New York Groovy / Grails Meetup Group
|Boston Grails Users’ Group
Of course, this list doesn´t take in consideration the number of registered members in mailing lists like the official one. This fact just made me wonder: why Grails is SO popular here in Brazil? What do you think about it?
Does now that I’m telling this “little fact” to the world, Spring will pay more attention to Brazil? ;)
*Update: recently I had to remove some of your subscribers, but we’re still big, with 506 members!
