My Presentations from The Irish Software Show 2010
This week I've been enjoying Dublin, Ireland thanks to the 2nd Annual Irish Software Show. On Wednesday night, I spoke about The Future of Web Frameworks and participated in a panel with Grails, Rails, ASP.NET MVC and Seaside developers. It was a fun night with lots of lively discussion. Below is my presentation from this event.
This morning, I delivered my Comparing Kick-Ass Web Frameworks talk. This presentation contains updated statistics for various metrics comparing Rails vs. Grails and Flex vs. GWT.
Thanks to all who attended my talks this week!
P.S. I believe audio was recorded on Wednesday night, but I'm unsure how it turned out. I'm pretty sure no recordings were done on this morning's session.

@Hussein - We're using Spring MVC and jQuery on my current project. Using JRebel and IntelliJ gives us zero-turnaround and makes Java not-so-painful. The reason I have Rails and Grails in this presentation is because of my experience using them both at LinkedIn. I don't mention Django because I haven't tried it myself.

thanks for sharing your stuff, like always. As a follower of your projects and blog since AppFuse 1.9.x, I am curious to know if you have an opinion on GWT's MVP world. I am trying to understand the right direction to building GWT apps. I am currently developing with Grails and jQuery, but I really like GWT. I see its MVP implementation in GWT 2.1 M1, and also in GWTP (gwt-platform). Have you tried GWT 2.1 apps generated by Roo? Or tried GWTP? Or any other MVP or GWT framework?
Tks a lot

@Felipe - I haven't used GWT since my last project in 2009. While I did enjoy using GWT at Evite, it's been somewhat nice getting back into the Spring MVC + JS for enhancement. We're using jQuery and I don't really feel like I'm missing out by not using GWT.
When I did use GWT, it was somewhat frustrating to find it was just a toolkit and if you wanted to make it into a web framework, you had to add in GXT and/or Google Gin, GWT Log, GWT Dispatch and a lightweight JSON Parsing framework. However, once you have all the pieces in place, it's a really nice Java component framework.

I am curious to know how the shadowing was done to make those images lift.
It's a border effect from Keynote. I agree it's pretty cool.
