Google Web Toolkit conferences

Posted by Dan Peterson - Tuesday, June 26, 2007 at 1:25:00 PM

A little while ago, we heard from the folks over at Pearson Education who said they were impressed with the interest in the Google Web Toolkit (GWT) and wanted to produce a 3-day GWT conference. After a few conversations to flesh out topics and program logistics, we’re pleased to report that Voices That Matter: Google Web Toolkit is set for December 4-6, 2007 in San Francisco. We couldn’t be happier to be working with Pearson on this event.

While we’re still discussing the nitty-gritty details of the schedule, nearly all of the GWT team will be speaking and participating in the conference, so we hope we’ll be able to have a chance to talk with you. You can be certain that the topics will include:

  • Performance: How to design for high performance and get the most out of your applications using GWT by taking advantage of features like ImageBundle in GWT 1.4.
  • Usability: Designing for a friendly user experience and making use of GWT's Widget library.
  • Security: Building off of Dan Morrill’s article, we'll discuss best practices for building secure applications with GWT.
  • Production: Tips on deploying and operating a GWT app.
  • Integration and interoperability: How to leverage things like the JavaScript Native Interface (JSNI) to extend existing AJAX apps or interoperate with JavaScript APIs.
  • Productivity: Leveraging existing tools to bring software engineering to AJAX.

If there are specific topics you want to learn more about, please speak up on the GWT Developer Forum. And in case you just can’t wait until December, you’re in luck:
