The first Vaadin Developer Meetup was held yesterday at Logica Finland headquarters in Helsinki, Finland. The event was a real success with around 70 attendees and great presentations.
As the first pre-release version Vaadin 6.2 was also released yesterday we had a great introduction into the new features held by Marc Englund from the Vaadin R&D team. In the middle of Marc's presentation we also had a great live coding demonstration by Henrik Paul on how to build a fully functional Vaadin 6.2 widget in less than 5 minutes. Impressive stuff!
We created a page for the event and will be adding presentation slides, photos and video material from the event shortly.
