Here are the GWT sessions on the upcoming google i/o 2010 to keep an eye on.
Google usually publishes the sessions on youtube and uploads the slides to the respective session homepage. Ray Ryan is talking on two session, one of it is called “Architecting GWT applications for production at Google” – maybe it is part two of his last talk on gwt architectures best practices.
I surely won’t miss any of those:
Modern web applications are quickly evolving to an architecture that has to account for the performance characteristics of the client, the server, and the global network connecting them. Should you render HTML on the server or build DOM structures with JS in the browser, or both? This session discusses this, as well as several other key architectural considerations to keep in mind when building your Next Big Thing.
How can you take advantage of new HTML5 features in your GWT applications? In this session, we answer that question in the form of demos — lots and lots of demos. We’ll cover examples of how to use Canvas for advanced graphics, CSS3 features, Web Workers, and more within your GWT applications.
There have been some really huge improvements in GWT’s UI fundamentals over the past year. We’ve introduced features such as UiBinder, ClientBundle, CssResource, and uber layout panels that allow you to build fast UIs in a sane manner. Come see how fun/easy/fast it can be to use these technologies in harmony to overhaul your UI.
GWT has a lot of little-publicized infrastructure that can help you build apps The Right Way: test-driven development, fast continuous builds, code coverage, comprehensive unit tests, and integration testing using Selenium or WebDriver. This session will survey GWT’s testing infrastructure, describe some best practices we’ve developed at Google, and help you avoid common pitfalls.
For large GWT applications, there’s a lot you should think about early in the design of your project. GWT has a variety of technologies to help you, but putting it all together can be daunting. This session walks you through how teams at Google architect production-grade apps, from design to deployment, using GWT.
