The presentation I gave at the Øredev conference on November 20th 2008 is now online. You can watch me stumble, mumble and rumble about Wicket in English. Here we go, enjoy:
Last November I attended the Øredev conference in Malmö and was given the opportunity to present Wicket to a (mostly) Scandinavian audience. Øredev is different from all other conferences I’ve attended because it has different tracks other than web and Java. There was a Cool languages track, a Domain Driven Design track, a .Net track, a Mobile track and of course a Java track.
I delivered a newer version of the introduction to Wicket presentation and the audience gave me a 4.22 rating (52×5 points, 33×3 and 0×1 points). Øredev will publish recorded videos of the sessions at a later time (I’m anxiously awaiting at least 2 presentations) so you can see my performance yourself. In the mean time you can take a look at the slides on slideshare (you’ll have to imagine my voice for now) or watch them inline below.

I’m in the fortunate position that I can join the ranks of the best presenters and technologists in the world and present Apache Wicket at the Øredev conference in Malmö next thursday (November 20th—which also happens to be my birthday). I’m flying into Copenhagen tomorrow and will be joining the ranks of Bruce Snyder, Alef Arendsen and Robert C. Martin for the speakers dinner.
I’m looking forward to meeting all those new guys, and especially Nino who is trying to interview me this time.
With this book, Wicket will become the greatest territory the Dutch have settled since Manhattan.

Finally, the Web Framework of web frameworks, Apache Wicket, now has a bible of its own.

Wicket is an innovative evolution of the MVC programming with simple roots, but without a primer such as this, it can be more challenging than it needs to be.
Founder, Bill2 Inc.
Wicket In Action glues the areas of web development with Apache Wicket together and gives a great overview of Apache Wicket...it will make a great compendium.
