I’m happy to report that the 2014 edition of the Web Framework Smackdown is shaping up to be a good one. This year we have a solid lineup, and for the first time we are going beyond Java with the inclusion of Misko Hevery representing AnguarJS and Pete Hunt representing React. Representing a more Java-centric approach to UI we have myself (representing JavaEE and JSF) and Joonas Lehtinen representing Vaadin. The discussion is sure to be lively, as noted industry gadfly Neal Ford, who recently caused a stir by suggesting organizations rethink their use of server side Java UI frameworks. With such a diverse range of approaches and such a provocative moderator, the discussion is bound to be interesting. The session is now in the JavaOne Content Catalog, register now and save money and lock in your seat at the session.
