As you may know, the Google I/O conference came to town last month and saw excited developers and lots of great sessions. It was a blast, and I had the pleasure of meeting some of our developer community members in person, which for me was the icing on the cake. Thanks to all who came to the event!
For those of you who may have missed the Google I/O conference, we're happy to report that the presentations and slide decks have been posted and are now viewable online!
Here are some recommendations for sessions you might enjoy:
- What allows applications built on GWT to be so high performance? One of the answers to this question is Deferred Binding. Bruce once again gives you the lowdown on how the technique is employed in GWT in "Faster-than-possible code: Deferred Binding in GWT".
- Ever wanted to mashup your application with other Google APIs? The Google API Libraries for GWT is designed for that purpose, and Miguel shows you how to use it in "Reusing Google APIs in GWT".
- Are you a GWT pro, and are looking for the next big thing in GWT technology? Check out "GWT Extreme!", presented by Ray Cromwell, who shows just how far you can go with GWT (from GWTQuery to GWT for Android, and beyond!)
- So you've built your fancy new user interface in GWT, but now how do you get your application to talk to a server? As with most things in GWT, you have options. For an overview of what's available and recommended best practices, Miguel provides an overview "GWT and Client-Server Communication"
- You've built your application in GWT and it now has some nice out-of-the-box optimizations. You're done with performance improvements, right? Well, why stop at fast when you can make your app really fast? GWT provides even more ways to keep boosting your application performance using ResourceBundles. You can also customize your application's startup using the new Linker subsystem. For more information on harnessing these techniques, check out Bob Vawter's talk "Resource Bundles and Linkers in GWT".
