Description: Google Web Toolkit (GWT) lets you build and optimize rich browser-based apps without having to be an expert in browser quirks, XMLHttpRequest, or JavaScript. Google AppEngine lets you build and host scalable Web applications written in Python or Java on Google’s infrastructure. In this talk, we’ll look at how to build and deploy a GWT+GAE application with Google Plugin for Eclipse and the GWT 2.1 application framework: MVP architecture with Activities and Places, persistence layer with RequestFactory and the GAE Datastore, and UI data binding with the Editor framework. We’ll also take a peek at GWT
Designer for Eclipse and performance optimization with SpeedTracer.

Speaker: David Chandler works with the Google Web Toolkit Team in Atlanta. An electrical engineer by training, Chandler got hooked on developing database Web applications in the days of NCSA Mosaic and has since written Web applications professionally in a variety of languages, including C, perl, ksh, ColdFusion, Java, JSF, and GWT. Prior to joining Google, Chandler worked on Internet banking applications with Intuit and launched a non-profit startup built with GWT and AppEngine. Chandler holds a patent on a method of organizing hierarchical data in a relational database and blogs about Java Web development at turbomanage.wordpress.com.
