    About the Conference

    December 3-6 2007
    San Francisco, California

    Google Web Toolkit enables developers to use their favorite Java tools to build AJAX applications without having to tackle the steep learning curve and quirks of JavaScript and CSS. The Voices That Matter: Google Web Toolkit Conference will insure you understand why this is so and how you can leverage the power and functionality of GWT for your applications.

    From the people who are publishing the definitive books on Google Web Toolkit, this conference will be a forum of the Google engineers, the open source community of contributors and developers like you.

    Addison-Wesley and Prentice Hall have been part of the evolution of software development. Our mission is to enable the industry's luminaries to deliver their expertise to software professionals, via books, conferences, or other methods.

    What Makes This Conference Unique?

    World Class Speakers
    Meet and learn from the folks, both Google engineers and community members, who have developed GWT. In addition, speakers will share their experiences in building real-world applications with GWT. Speakers confirmed to date include Bruce Johnson, Joel Webber, Ryan Dewsbury, Scott Blum, David Geary, and Kelly Norton.

    Community Building
    The Voices That Matter: Google Web Toolkit Conference will not be an isolated island of education. Starting with pre-event conference calls and including a conference blog and speaker podcasts, participants will be given a range of opportunities to interact with the speakers and each other. They will be part of an ongoing conversation before and beyond the event itself.
