Episode 22 - Chris Richardson on Cloud Foundry

Today, I speak to San Fransisco based consultant Chris Richardson, author of Manning's POJOs in Action, and creator of Cloud Tools and Cloud Foundry, both tools created to simplify working with Amazon Web Services for Java and Grails applications.

Chris and I speak about the growth of Cloud Computing, as well about his projects.  We also discuss the increased adoption of Groovy and Grails as a rapid development platform.
