A good time for GWT
Posted by David Chandler on November 19, 2014
Just a quick note to the let the GWT community know that I’m really pleased to be joining Sencha as Developer Advocate for GXT. This is an exciting time for GWT and I’m glad to be part of it again. A lot of the stuff we’ve been hearing about for the last year is really starting to take shape. My own projects are already benefitting from the much faster super dev mode in GWT 2.7.0-rc1. Thanks to incremental compilation, small changes often take only a second to refresh. JSInterop looks promising and I’m happy to see that several companies continue to invest in GWT, including Google, as evidenced by lots of new stuff in GWT 2.7 and its use in the Google Inbox Web app (which, by the way, looks very promising). Sencha’s Brandon Donnelson has contributed a lot to super dev mode support in Eclipse, and the IntelliJ folks have made it really slick to launch super dev mode in IntelliJ 14. I am told that GXT 4 will have some nifty new stuff, too, but more on that later…
I look forward to seeing you at GWT.create 2015!
