The Largest GWT Developer Conference in January 2015

Share Article

The GWT.create conference gathers the GWT communities together as a joint 2+2 day conference in the US and Europe for a second time in early 2015.

Over 150 000 software professionals use GWT (formerly Google Web Toolkit) in their everyday job creating business critical applications. Twice as many use GWT-derived frameworks such as Vaadin, GXT, GWTP and Errai. GWT and its derivatives are used in the majority of fortune-100 companies, inside central Google products and in governments around the world. .

GWT.create was arranged for the first time in 2013 as a community conference, gathering over 650 developers with over 30 speeches from all central GWT Steering Committee members.

The original founders of Google Web Toolkit, Bruce Johnson and Joel Webber, are joining the conference with the GWT Steering committee creating a mixture of History of GWT and the Future of the Web from Web Components to Mobile Web and from Compiler Deep Dives to Flying Drones..

"Together, we wrote the first version of the compiler, libraries, and well...everything...because we didn't have anybody else on the team until we could prove that it was a viable approach to web development. It will be interesting to see where GWT is today by meeting hundreds of users at GWT.create," says Bruce Johnson.

With over 60 presentations, BOFs, workshops, demo sessions, a panel discussion and 2 keynotes GWT.create 2015 will be set over 2+2 days in Mountain View, California, January 21-22 and in Munich, Germany, January 27-28.

"Last year's conference videos alone have been watched for over 900 000 minutes on YouTube. That combined with the feedback from the attendees and speakers made us decide to redo the conference with even higher goals. And we're proud to have all central GWT users with us together with ArcBees, JetBrains and Sencha as sponsors at the event," says Fredrik Rönnlund from GWT.create organizing team at Vaadin.

The GWT.create 2015 conference is the highlight of the year for learning about the future of the web, GWT and web development in Java.
