Slides for the GWT talk at JUG Cologne

Yesterday I gave a talk about GWT at the Cologne JUG in Germany.

I presented some old slides about GWT from my Isidro Parodi talk last year, as well as the more recent Google I/O slides from the Bruce Johnson. I highly suggest to look at Bruce’s IO videos, this is very interesting material if you want to dive into GWT.

Examples I mentioned were Alenty, who is revolutionizing web analytics by measuring engagement thanks to GWT DOM API, and myerp.com who’s doing to ERP what Salesforce did in CRM.

Also the 2 important related projects I mentioned were xml vm, by Arno Puder, and Volta by Microsoft. Both are using javascript as the assembly language for the web, as Arno explained at his tech talk at Google last year, xml vm compiles from java bytecode, and Volta from MS IL.

There were 35-40 people, and I had very interesting conversations with Michael Hüttermann, Fabian Lange, Sven Tiffe, and Marc Guillemot from WebTest/HTMLUnit, and Peter Voss from Krugle. Cologne seems to have a vibrant Java community.

Thanks for inviting me, I hope to see you al at Google Developer days Munich september 23.
