Lone Star Software Symposium: Dallas
June 5 - 7, 2009 - Dallas, TX
GWT fu, Part 2
Learn to do amazing stuff with GWT.
This session picks up where GWT fu, Part 1 left off. In this session, I will continue live-coding the Places application. In taking the Places application to its exciting conclusion, I will cover the following advanced aspects of GWT:
Dialog boxes Sinking events DOM elements Working with HTML Modules Image loading and busy cursors Event previews Timers
In this session, I focus primarily on implementing a viewport widget in a custom module, and using that widget in the Places application. When I'm done, we'll have a very cool web application that shows the awesome potential of Google Web Toolkit
Prerequisite: GWT fu, Part 1 is not a prerequisite for this session, but it will help if you have some familiarity with GWT.
