“It's no secret that having a strong and enthusiastic community around open-source technologies is one of the main driving factors in the success of not only open-source projects but, most importantly, of their users."

- Alejandro Duarte, Dev Rel Manager

The Vaadin community is stronger than ever with over 150 000 developers worldwide. We appreciate your continued contribution to our community and technology, whether that be by asking questions or pointing out bugs, or more. In return, we aim to support your journey in mastering Java and Vaadin by creating relevant and easy-to-follow learning resources. 

Nothing makes us happier than to see you succeed and confidently use our platform to build beautiful, functional web apps.

Below we have compiled some of our top tutorials and resources, from our YouTube channel, in case you missed them. What better time to brush up on your existing Vaadin skills, than in the quiet months of the summer, right?

How to subscribe and send Web Push notifications in Java

In this video, Marcus Hellberg shows you how you can send web push notifications from a Java server. The video shows how to subscribe to notifications in the browser, save the subscription on the server, and use the subscription to send a web push notification. 

Marcus uses a SpringBoot and LitElement based Vaadin Fusion project as an example, but you can use the same library in other environments.

Vaadin Dev Day Spring 2021

If you haven’t yet, now would be the perfect time to also catch up on our Vaadin Dev Day spring edition. The biannual event covers in-depth technical topics and insights for the Vaadin community. 

This year's Vaadin Dev Day focused on Vaadin Flow topics, including DataProvider usage, JavaScript integration, and a roadmap presentation. 

We also were excited to host , Simon Martinelli from 72Services, as a very special guest speaker, so sit back, relax and hit play to enjoy the presentations by #Vaadiners Matti Tahvonen and Leif Åstrand, as well as Simon Martinelli.
