Proposal accepted for OSCON 2008
From an e-mail I received earlier this afternoon:
We are pleased to accept the following proposal for OSCON 2008.
* Web Frameworks of the Future: Flex, GWT, Grails and Rails
It has been scheduled for 16:30 on 23 Jul 2008.
What if the choices in web framework was reduced to 4? If RIA are the way of the future, it's possible that these 4 frameworks are the best choices for this development paradigm. This session will explore these frameworks, as well as entertain many other's opinions on the future of web development.
RESTful backends are easy to create with both Rails and Grails. Ajax frontends are simple to create and maintain with GWT. Flex gives you flash and a pretty UI. If you're an HTML developer, Rails allows you to quickly develop MVC applications. If you're a Java Developer, GWT + Grails might be a match made in heaven. This session is designed to help you learn more about each framework and decide which combination is best for your project.
I'm really looking forward to learning about GWT and Flex in the coming months. If you have any experience (or opinions) about the abstract above, I'd love to hear it. The louder the better.
For those who haven't been, OSCON is one of those truly special conferences. Possible reasons:
- It's only an hour from my parent's house
- It's a beautiful time of year in Portland
- It's always the same weekend as the Oregon Brewers Festival
- It's a kickass conference with the greatest diversity of Open Source Committers
I'm going for all 4 reasons and even made a reservation to stay at The Kennedy School. Should be a fun show.
Minor comment: it would have been nice to have a link to OSCON in the post to further encourage someone like me to learn more about it.

I guess I will start the: "What about......." series of responses.
What about Seam?

@Stevi - good point. I've added a link and logo.
@Daniel - it's easier to exclude than include. I've never been impressed with JSF and if I'm just using the backend of Seam, I'd rather use Spring + Hibernate or JPA. That's just personal preference though - I'm sure others feel different. To each their own.
