Contributing Members

The bylaws of The Grails Foundation provide that Object Computing will maintain, in perpetuity, a majority interest in the Foundation to serve as a steward of The Grails Framework and its global open source community. Object Computing has committed an initial contribution of $200,000.00 to fund open source product development and evangelism for Grails.

“For over a decade, Grails has been a leader among JVM web application frameworks. The innovations in Grails and the longevity of its success have been possible only because of the vibrant and active community around the technology over the years. The Grails Foundation is being launched in part to acknowledge the role that the community has played all along, and to create a forum to continue growing the enthusiasm of the community. A core tenet of The Object Computing Team has always been All Of Us Are Better Than Any One Of Us, and The Grails Foundation will facilitate the continued embracing of the value in that truth.” , said Jeff Scott Brown, Grails co-founder and Object Computing Grails Practice Lead.

The Foundation relies on the financial support of our Contributing Members. If you are interested in becoming a Contributing Member, please contact us at [email protected].
