Chariot TechCast ETE Podcast #2 – the Web Framework Shootout of 2010
Our last web framework shootout at ETE was in 2008, and we felt it was high time for another meetup. Since then, Rails and Merb have merged, JSF 2.0 was released, Grails has become more mature, Spring has moved into annotation-driven configuration in a big way, and there are still a ton of choices for an architect to make when choosing a web framework.
This year the shootout is led by Robert Hanson, author of Manning’s GWT In Action, who was a speaker on last year’s podcast. This is a Not Safe For Work download, as it involves some cursing and stronger statements, but overall it’s no worse than you’ll hear when meeting up with a few of these guys at a bar.
Speakers in this shootout include, in no particular order:
- Chris Richardson of Cloud Foundry/SpringSource/VMware
- Dan Allen and Lincoln Baxter III of JBoss, a division of RedHat
- Alex Payne of Twitter
- David Black of Cyrus
- Scott Davis of Thirsty Head
- Yehuda Katz of Engine Yard
- Jeremey Grelle of SpringSource/VMware
- Ed Burns of Oracle
Music for the podcast was performed by Chariot’s Andrew Oswald.
