Devoxx - Agenda

Belgium Events and Conferences

Devoxx, the largest Java conference in Europe, uses a Vaadin application for displaying the conference schedule on their website. The application uses the Vaadin Calendar add-on and a REST API to access the Devoxx schedule. In addition to just presenting the schedule in a convenient format, users can sign in to store their own schedules.

"When Devoxx published the conference schedule as a REST interface, we decided that it would be a nice way to showcase our Vaadin Calendar add-on and at the same time build a demo application that would actually be useful. The project started out with a simple prototype and after iterating the design with our team and also within Vaadin Team we got a final product that we can be proud of. We're very pleased with both Vaadin the company and Vaadin the framework.The application has been featured on the Devoxx website and even JFokus conference provided a compatible REST interface and we got the application featured also on their website."
