What’s New in GWT 2.1
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. In this talk, we'll look at powerful new capabilities in GWT 2.1 including MVP architecture with Activities and Places, client-server communication with RequestFactory, visual layout with GWT Designer for Eclipse, and performance optimization with SpeedTracer.

Launching scalable apps with Google App Engine


Google AppEngine lets you build and host scalable Web applications written in Python or Java on Google's infrastructure. We'll look at how to build and deploy a GWT+GAE application with Google Plugin for Eclipse and get an overview of building the App Engine way, including working with the Datastore, task queues, and quotas.
