Google Web Toolkit Blog

One of the core technologies we used to develop Piano Etudes is the Google Web Toolkit (GWT), an open-source framework which lets you write code in Java and cross-compile it to highly-optimized AJAX for web deployment.

I wrote an article for Google’s GWT Blog which offers some tips and tricks for developers who want to integrate audio into this framework.
