Addison-Wesley and Prentice Hall are putting on a conference dedicated to GWT on December 3-6 in San Francisco.
Meet and learn from the folks, both Google engineers and community members, who have developed GWT. Speakers will share their experiences in building real-world applications with GWT. Speakers include many of the GWT team members, including Bruce Johnson and Joel Webber. They will be joined by Billy Hoffman, Jeet Kaul, Josh Bloch, David Geary, and other members of the GWT community.
- Getting started with GWT
- Solving traditional web usability problems with AJAX and GWT
- Building user interfaces
- Client/server communication, including RPC, JSON, and XML
- Integration and interoperation with existing applications and libraries
- Unit testing and benchmarking
- Deploying GWT applications effectively
- Advanced UI programming: Widgets, Panels, DOM, and JSNI
- Using deferred binding for dependency injection and code generation
- Designing for no-compromise usability, including tips for maximizing responsiveness, supporting history, and internationalizing well
- Maximizing code reuse
- Security considerations for AJAX and GWT
- Architecting big applications with GWT
Network with colleagues and GWT team members to discuss the underlying promise of GWT as well as its current challenges:
- How can I integrate GWT into my existing application?
- How have others added functionality to GWT?
- How can one best take advantage of Java
design patterns in GWT?
- For large projects, how can we handle multiple entry points?
- What are the best practices for debugging
- Which IDEs work best with GWT?
- How have others integrated Spring and Hibernate?
- How can you contribute to the Google Web Toolkit project?
To whet your appetite they put together a couple of interviews with the founders of GWT that are worth a lesson:
