Presentation from GWT.create 2015 EU
Auto-GWT (auto-gwt.org) is a library for the Google Web Toolkit, that frees your code from unneccessary and complicated boilerplate and at the same time pushes the IDE capabilities to a new level. Auto-GWT is based on Xtend (xtendlang.org).
Xtend is a modern programming language that is 100% compatibly with existing Java libraries and even translates to readable Java source code. With it's slick syntax and powerful features such as lambdas, operator overloading and compile-time macros you can turn any verbose piece of Java code into a small and elegant piece of expressive Xtend code.
In this session we will show how Xtend can be used to program GWT applications and how well the typical GWT idioms are supported by the language.
