Regular Jozi JUG - Democratic choice - Sparkler

This is the regular Jozi JUG session.

Gradle Build system speaker is not available anymore.

Presenter is Toby Kurien :

Toby Kurien, a long-time Java developer and Ruby on Rails fan will discusses the implications of the recent TechEmpower benchmarks, and present his implementation of a developer-friendly Java web framework called Sparkler. Sparkler provides much of the pleasure of working in Rails, while using tried-and-tested (as well as some bleeding-edge)
Java technologies.

    Can I request talks? Here are some of my ideas so far..

    1) If there is somebody out there that knows advanced junit features eg. hamcrest/assertThat and how to use it properly, please come share..
    2) Maybe a hands-on design patterns lightning talk evening?! (20min per pattern)
    3) Some GWT tips and tricks (I can be convinced to do a little on this)

      I could do a GWT talk if there is interest. I'm going to be fairly busy the next couple of months, but from April on should be good.
