But you are hardly a new developer! :)

But yes, I already used Grok as an easy front end for a chess program
and as a pure Grok to-do list.  I used grokproject to create the
boiler plate.  Basically the only other knowledge I needed was ZPT and
browser views.  That is a pretty low level of entry I would say.
