When we first arranged the GWT.create conference last December, we were blown away by the level of both speakers and attendees in the conference. How could we top that? We did not, you did: the word got around and you sent us even more amazing presentation proposals. With these ingredients it was simply impossible to build an agenda where you would not have a hard time choosing between all the interesting choices.

Everything about the GWT Framework

The conference will be a turning point for GWT. Let’s stop being the humble workhorse that just powers some of the top businesses. Let’s see the bleeding edge and discuss the next generation stuff that will change how people see what GWT is.

You, the GWT developer

While the presentations are awesome, it is often even more rewarding to network and hack with some of the top GWT developers from around the world. Some of the sessions are there just to get the discussion going.

  • Demo stage provides a place to show what you have done with GWT - hosted by Colin Alworth / Sencha
  • Contributing to GWT workshop
  • Ask anything from the GWT Steering Committee panel hosted by Joonas Lehtinen / Vaadin
  • Birds of a feather sessions focused on a topic you will choose (later on)

And of course there is also a party, an expo and (in US) a tour around the computer history museum, …

You are invited!

What do you think about the agenda?

To make attending easier for you, we are again arranging the conference both in US (Mountain View, CA) and Germany (Munich). We also moved the conference to January to avoid competing with the unavoidable end of the year deadlines and holiday preparations.
