Google Web Toolkit 1.6 (Release Candidate) – developer’s guide and download page

Developer’s Guide

  • Please consider this a draft until GWT 1.6 is officially released

  • Google Web Toolkit (GWT) makes it easier to write high-performance AJAX applications. You write your front end in the Java programming language and GWT compiles your source into highly optimized JavaScript.

Upgrading to GWT 1.6

There are four tasks involved when upgrading a GWT 1.5 project to a GWT 1.6 project:

  • Download the new JAR files and update your launch configurations.

  • GWTShell has been replaced by HostedMode, so you will need to update your Eclipse project settings accordingly.

  • GWT now uses a war directory for most public resource and server configuration files. The war directory is a standard directory recognized by many web servers, including GWT hosted mode.

  • Event listeners have been replaced by event handlers.

Stack Overflow – collaboratively edited question and answer site for programmers


Hello World!

Stack Overflow is a collaboratively edited question and answer site for programmers — regardless of platform or language. It’s 100% free, no registration required.

  • I’ve thoroughly vetted Stack Overflow — the podcast, blog, team, and the question and answer main site.

  • Here is the “46th episode of the StackOverflow podcast, live from MIX09, where Joel and Jeff answer questions from the live audience.”

  • I’m giving this effort a recommendation without any reservations. They have some interesting variations on voting and reputation and a very different approach to how your un-vetted opinions affect the site. They are committed to preventing any gaming of the voting system.

User reechard – Stack Overflow.

via Wikipedia:

Barbara Liskov, (born Barbara Jane Huberman in 1939), is a computer scientist. She is currently the Ford Professor of Engineering in the MIT School of Engineering‘s Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department and an Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She earned her BA in mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley in 1961, and became the first woman in the United States to be awarded a Ph.D. from a computer science department, in 1968 from Stanford University.[2] The topic of her Ph.D. thesis was a computer program to play chess end games.[3]

Liskov has led many significant projects, including the Venus operating system, a small, low-cost and interactive timesharing system; the design and implementation of CLU, the first programming language to support data abstraction; Argus, the first high-level language to support implementation of distributed programs; and Thor, an object-oriented database system. With Jeannette Wing, she developed a particular definition of subtyping, commonly known as the Liskov substitution principle. She leads the Programming Methodology Group at MIT, with a current research focus in Byzantine Fault Tolerance and distributed computing.

How To Install Firebug In Browsers Other Than Firefox | MakeUseOf.com

Firebug is a web developer’s best friend. It is a Firefox add-on that makes it very easy to debug and develop web pages. It provides you with a way to inspect page elements and perform many other functions…

Firebug Lite makes it possible to put Firebug into any web browser! You should be able to use it with Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari, Chrome, and any other browser that supports JavaScript. Firebug Lite is written in JavaScript, so you can include it on a webpage with the following code:

<script type='text/javascript'
     src='http://getfirebug.com/releases/lite/1.2/firebug-lite-compressed.js'></script>

Or even better you can use this bookmarklet:

Old School Philosophy – Power of Quality

Back in the early days of blogging I realized that there is a powerful impact of publishing quality voices, ideas, opinion, and analysis of people creating new products, companies, and markets.  What I’ve found is that the power of publishing about quality ideas and quality people not only creates a good user experience, but also creates relationships that can create positive change – one that causes people to connect and collaborate…

Scobleizer: Technology, innovation, and geek enthusiasm » Blog Archive Robert and Rocky ride again at Rackspace «.

Add all these things up and they got me excited about doing something new.

That new thing is called Building 43.

Why “Building 43?” Well, if you visit Google’s campus, you’ll see that the building that houses their “master plan” is Building 43 (several of its founders sit in building 43 there too). Microsoft has a building 43, too, which is where many of the developers on Windows and other things sit. I always thought that was funny that both companies had a building 43. When I asked friendfeed and Twitter for interesting building 43 stories,   I learned that Google’s numbering system predates it back to when SGI had its headquarters there.

TechCrunch was first to break the story as usual:  Scoble’s New Thing: Building 43.

Robert is discussing this right this second on Gillmor Gang broadcast live on TWiT Live.

Here is one of Steve Jurvetson’s photos of the Google Master Plan referred to in Robert’s post.
