Practical introduction to Vaadin

Vaadin is an increasingly popular approach to build web UIs for Java application. It’s component based approach excels especially in apps with lots of screens and apps that are maintained for a long time. You’ll learn how Vaadin works, when you should consider using it and also when not. We won’t spend too much time with slides, but show you in action and create a CRUD UI for an existing backend built with Spring Data JPA.
