Geertjan Wielenga has been working with a series of nice interviews about IT experts who use Vaadin together with NetBeans to efficiently solve complex business requirements. Bruno Freitas and Alejandro Duarte have been already covered, so contact Geertjan on twitter in case you’re using NetBeans as well.

Oliver Damm from akquinet has written a yet another Vaadin CDI + MVP article last autumn.
