David Geary’s talk on Google Web Toolkit was one of the highlights of the day. Oddly enough they held it in the polar room and kept it at a brisk 30 below! Aside from feeling like we were stuck in the North Pole, the presentation was informative and engaging, and David’s dry humor left us chuckling (the only warmth we could generate in that room). Have I mentioned that the room was cold?
The five top features that GWT provides:
Application generator for quickstart
Convention over configuration
Instant turnaround after changes
David is obviously a well seasoned presenter and made the process of learning more about GWT engaging. His session was chock full of demo’s and actually wrote code during the presentation to show how easy the creation could be. I think given the right circumstances, and a client willing to think outside the box, GWT is something you should add to your skill-set.
