Scholarships Available for Pearson's GWT Conference

Posted by Dan Peterson - Friday, November 09, 2007 at 6:13:00 PM

Pearson's Voices That Matter: Google Web Toolkit conference is only a few weeks away, and we're eager to meet folks from the GWT community there. For those of you looking for a little financial assistance, we've worked with Pearson to put together a GWT Scholarship. It's meant to reward folks who have built neat things with GWT, made it better by submitting bug reports and patches, or simply actively discussed GWT in the forums. If you receive a scholarship, you can attend the 3-day conference for a reduced rate of just $150.

We'll be handing out 25 scholarships to folks who have worked hard and contributed to the GWT community. Examples of contributions are:

  • Deploying a product using GWT (or even prototyped something neat)
  • Reporting and debugged some of the issues
  • Submitting a patch (to help Make GWT Better)
  • Participating in the discussions on the developer forum

If you're interested in applying for the Pearson GWT Conference Scholarship, send us an email explaining how you've contributed and how the scholarship would benefit you (no more than 300 words, please!) at gwt-pearson@google.com no later than Friday, November 16, 2007. We'll announce the recipients on Wednesday, November 21, 2007.

And we're looking forward to seeing you at the conference!

Update: scholarships still available

As an update: there are still scholarships available to attend the Voices That Matter: Google Web Toolkit conference in a few weeks in San Francisco. While we've seen several compelling entries, we'd love to see what else is lurking in the GWT community. We'll update this thread when we've run out; in the meantime, please drop us a line if you're interested.
