JavaScript is the New Metal (Again)

Hearing Scott Davis and David Geary talk about Google Web Toolkit at Calgary's NoFluffJustStuff this weekend, I was reminded of one of last year's bloggable quotes: JavaScript is the new metal. The difference is Scott thinks people need to get down to the metal and David thinks the GWT Java to JavaScript compiler is trustworthy. I'm with David GWT is very cool.

Was also impressed with Brian Sletten's take on NetKernel and the the power of emerging semantic web tools.

- Peace

I agree, Dave. Anything that hides the JavaScript and allows me to program in Java without having to worry about it gets my vote!
Reliability and a good selection of functional widgets that don't limit creativity in the UI are the key.
