Building great web apps is not an easy task. User expectations keep growing, and the technologies needed to fulfill them are increasingly complicated. Vaadin takes a very different approach to web development. For starters, there's no need to write HTML or JavaScript. No REST services. Instead, you build your app using ready-made UI components in Java and let Vaadin handle the rest. The result is a great looking HTML5 web app that works on both desktop and mobile. Come find out how fun and productive web development can be. Vaadin is an open source web framework used by more than 150,000 developers and 40% of Fortune 100 companies - .
