Description

I’m Brandon Donnelson and I’ve been working on GWT a while since somewhere around 2008. I enjoy helping make development easier. So the other day someone said they wanted to see more getting started video content so I started out with this course.

This course covers the basic GWT application development by video example. It starts out with Eclipse GWT application creating and debugging. Then moves into UI component creation, event handling and ajax calls. And finishes off with providing css styling and images for the UI.

If you’re new to GWT, I think this would help build up quick terminology and context around building an application using GWT.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is suited for those beginning to learn GWT.

Support Engineer at Sencha

I live on a small farm with my wife and 5 kids. We've got a couple alpaca, llama, goats and some chickens. 

I have been working in the software field since the 2000's and I've been working with GWT since 2008 building simple to complex applications. 

My recent endeavors to help make GWT application development easier includes building GWT Maven Archetypes to help with getting start. I have invested some my spare time in the GWT Eclipse Plugin or GPE trying. I've enjoyed improving the GWT Eclipse plugin. 

My latest trade, being a GXT Support Engineer has been quite enjoyable. I have been able to speak at conferences, travel to exotic places and help train customers. I get called from time to time to provide custom services as well.
