    Hello Everyone that attended :)
    Thanks for coming!

    1) The showcase application I demoed on a iPad3, Android 2.1 phone, Android 3 tab, Android 4 phone, Windows 2008 tab last night is downloadable from PhoneGap Build.

    The plain ugly Hello World HTML version is also downloadable :

    2) You can also give GWT 2.5 a spin , even if it's in Eclipse (Marius and Myron ) ;-)

    3) You can also check out the fancy demo I hacked together using m-gwt and gwt-phonegap
    You will need to read Google's MVP to understand the concepts :

    Java is so cool!

    We have basement parking reserved for Jozi JUG visitors at the 155 West building basement. The Auditorium is just to your right as you exit the basement lifts/stars - past reception on your left and straight ahead of you.

    The entrance to the parking can be seen on Google Street View:

    You want to be driving North-West on West St, if you're driving South-East (towards Rivonia Rd), you will have to do a U-turn and come back.

    See yo all there! :-)
