A few months I did a training on the Google Web Toolkit (GWT), so I thought I'd share the presentation:
Note that it was made before GWT 1.5 was out, and I did a bunch of live demos that aren't included in the presentation (no video, sorry). Enjoy, and let me know if you liked it.
I got two books on GWT almost for free thanks to a coupon I won at my local Java Users Group. One is "Google Web Toolkit Solutions" by David Geary, which is excellent, and the other one I don't remember the name, which is good because I don't recommend it (I'll update this post once I check the name of it).
The latest version as of this writing (1.5.2) is the first official release with support for annotations and other goodies from Java 1.5, which makes things even better. Of course there are a lot of improvements with the default CSS themes/layouts, more and better widgets, and lots of optimizations.
We currently have a POC application that unfortunately I can't show, but once it is released, you'll be the first ones to know!
