Writing Big Apps with Google Web Toolkit

Joel Webber, Google

Track: Products and Services
Date: Thursday, July 26
Time: 4:30pm - 5:15pm
Location: E141

Google Web Toolkit (GWT) is an open source Ajax toolkit based on the Java language. GWT makes it easy to get started with Ajax, but as you attempt more ambitious projects, understanding which patterns works well with GWT for large applications becomes increasingly important. The session will begin with a short introduction to Google Web Toolkit followed by a detailed explanation of GWT features and best practices for building large, multipage Ajax applications.

In particular, learn how to leverage key GWT subsystems (RPC, history, and code generation) to create user-friendly web apps that are as blindingly fast as they are well-engineered.
