While Lift's unique philosophy can lead to incredible web sites, it can also introduce an intimidating learning curve for new adopters.
Come join Lift committer Dave Whittaker and Jason Cernansky of Iradix, who will walk us though a sample application and explain some of Lift's most exciting features. We'll discuss how:
- Lift sites are resistant to the OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities by default
- Lift's comet support allows developers to push data as it changes without worrying about issues like connection starvation and other "plumbing" between the client and server
- Lift pages are rendered from 100% valid HTML markup. Developers can work with the same pages that designers do, and all logic remains type-safe and checked by the Scala compiler
We'll also go over some of the common pitfalls new adopters experience and leave plenty of time to answer your questions.
