New GWT sessions posted for the Google I/O conference

With Google I/O just a few weeks away (May 28 - 29), if you haven't already registered, now's a good time to do so. There are now over 80 sessions posted, including a lot on Google Web Toolkit. In fact, there's a GWT session during just about every time slot over the two days. A few GWT sessions which we've recently added include:

Using GWT to build a high performance collaborative diagramming tool
You may have seen us write about Lombardi Blueprint before. Lombardi has built an amazing user interface and experience using GWT. Hear from Alex Moffat and Damon Lunden from Lombardi as they focus in on two challenges they faced: efficient rendering of the diagrams in the browser and client/server object syncing for multi-user editing.

GWT Extreme!
Ray Cromwell, CTO of, has been doing some really interesting things with his Syndroid project, a combined GWT and Android exploration. Ray will be showing the power of using GWT and linkers to create native interfaces into ActionScript, Android, Gears, and more.

The conference promises to be educational and a lot of fun. I'm particularly excited that my favorite (although fourth most popular) digi-folk parody band will be making an appearance. We'll also have a number of engineers from the GWT team traveling out from Atlanta, so come say hello.

Be sure to visit the website to see the complete list of sessions and to register. For those coming from out of town, there are discounted room rates at nearby hotels. Read the details on the website to take advantage of the discount, but move fast because the hotel discount ends tomorrow, May 6th.
