Scalable Apps with GWT 2.1 and Google App Engine - Joint Event with NovaJUG

  • Jan 18, 2011 · 6:30 PM

Due to overwhelming interest and capacity limitation at the location, we are closing for new RSVPs. We will try to schedule one more similar event soon. Apologies! GWT Special Interest Group within NCA-GTUG is hosting the first event on GWT with Northern Virginia Java Users Group.
What: NovaJUG/NCA GTUG Meeting featuring a presentation on “
Launching Scalable Apps with GWT 2.1 and Google App Engine” by David Chandler of the Atlanta Google Web Toolkit Team. When: Tues Jan 18, 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM
Sponsor: Pizza and Liquid Refreshments will be provided by Google. The location will be provided by OPower. Thanks!
Description: Google Web Toolkit (GWT) lets you build and optimize rich browser-based apps without having to be an expert in browser quirks, XMLHttpRequest, or JavaScript. Google AppEngine lets you build and host scalable Web applications written in Python or Java on Google’s infrastructure. In this talk, we’ll look at how to build and deploy a GWT+GAE application with Google Plugin for Eclipse and the GWT 2.1 application framework: MVP architecture with Activities and Places, persistence layer with RequestFactory and the GAE Datastore, and UI data binding with the Editor framework. We’ll also take a peek at GWT Designer for Eclipse and performance optimization with SpeedTracer.
Speaker: David Chandler works with the Google Web Toolkit Team in Atlanta. An electrical engineer by training, Chandler got hooked on developing database Web applications in the days of NCSA Mosaic and has since written Web applications professionally in a variety of languages, including C, perl, ksh, ColdFusion, Java, JSF, and GWT. Prior to joining Google, Chandler worked on Internet banking applications with Intuit and launched a non-profit startup built with GWT and AppEngine. Chandler holds a patent on a method of organizing hierarchical data in a relational database and blogs about Java Web development at
turbomanage.wordpress.com.
Location: OPower HQ – 1515 North Courthouse Road, on the 6th floor, in Arlington- right off the Orange Line of the DC Metro (Courthouse Stop)
Parking: There should be plenty of parking in the garage behind or out in front of the building.
After Party!: Ireland’s Four Courts is across the street!

    It was really cool to know more about GWT from one of the experts!

    I asked the presenter about releasing the slides, and he said he has to clear them with Google before releasing them: http://turbomanage.wordpress.com/2010/12/20/how-to-find-all-available-settings-in-gwt-xml/#comment-4491

    Well organized and great speaker. He knew his stuff and was able to present in light hearted way, avoiding boardom.

    Nice talking to someone who worked in GWT about the product. Was very knowledgeable, I learned a few things. Would love to hear from him again.

    Solid speaker, great topic, let me think "why haven't I used GWT before?".

    Verrry eenteresting (as they used to say on Rowen & Martins Laugh-In) Now all I have to do is find some time to go and play with GWT and Google's App Engine

    Great speaker and nice pace.

    It was perfect for me as I've just begun experimenting with GWT. I am fairly pumped and hope that I can put my client side language angst behind me (by settling on GWT).

    David Chandler was a great speaker. He was very knowledgable, but most importantly, his speaking style was engaging. It was clear he had good instincts for connecting with the crowd.

    I learned a lot about GWT and Google App Engine. Where I hadn't really considered GAE before, I now want to deploy an app out there, just to try it. My knowledge of GWT was greatly increased. Counterintuitively, the talk helped me decide that JQuery is probably the best choice for my team right now. At least I understand the benefits GWT offers that JQuery does not, however. If I am faced with a tight deadline, a team of folks more comfortable with Java than JavaScript, and the need to create a rich web app, I'll pick GWT, for sure.

    Dave was a fine speaker...but I don't think he covered the ground that he had planned on (related to GWT...I didn't stay for the follow-on discussion of GAE). I think he got waylaid by the questions. I actually wanted to hear more about MVP...but he didn't get to that.

    The meetup was great and informative. The only problem I had was that no one told me it was a secure facility. I went down to get my cell phone from the car at 8:00 and could not get back up stairs so I had to go home. My apologies to Chida and the crew for what must have seemed like an early duck out.

    Enjoyed the presentation, gave me a good idea about what GWT is all about. Now it's time to get in there and hack something together.
