Yesterday I attended the Profict Java Summer Camp. And what a camp it was. The first surprise was the location, what a nice environment to do your work. In introduction of profict, "we are hiring". Then the real camp started. 4 hours head on with Greg Murray. Greg is working for more then 10 years with java, mostly for sun. The last years he has been busy with AJAX. He gave a very enthousiastic talk about a ajax and some frameworks. Just to give you some pointers:
Dojo framework, jMaki frameowork, ajax blueprints, netbeans.
He showed a lot of examples, a few I liked very much. http://www.javaserver.org/jmaki/ https://blueprints.dev.java.net/ajax.html http://www.isoma.net/games/goggles.html (Oops not ajax)
In Brief, a very nice presentation with a lot of information. It could have been a little bit shorter. Some nice pointers to start new research into java
The next presentation was by Bram Smeets of interface21. We allready know him, read one of the other posts about dwr on my blog. He gave a very good introduction to the powers of dwr and what it can do if you combine it with spring. I guess I allready knew, still, it was interesting to see and hear Bram talk about it and put some stuff into perspective. I am curious about the next step of dwr and the use of spring 2 stuff within DWR.
After the presentations there was a nice barbeque, had some good conversations with Greg, Bram and others. It was a very nice camp, thank you profict.
