Apache Wicket: The Story So Far and Beyond - Andrea Del Bene, Innoteam srl
With more then 10 years of history behind it, Wicket is one of the few web framework that succeeded to stay popular up to the present days. But why should you consider Wicket for your next project in a world full of "coolest" JavaScript frameworks?

In this presentation we will answer this question looking at how Wicket still make the difference when we have to code a large and complex web application. After a short introduction to the framework, we will review the most important milestones in its history with a particular focus on the last 3 years.

In the second part of the presentation we will review some of the most appreciated features of the framework while in the final part we will see a preview of the incoming version 8.

Besides these technical topics we will also see how we managed to revamp our community making Wicket more enjoyable to use and better supported.

What's Up with Wicket 8 and Java 8 - Martijn Dashorst, Topicus B.V.
The Apache Wicket community is working hard to build the new major release of Wicket. One of the tentpole features is the move to Java 8 as a minimum requirement. Why did we do that, and how does this improve my Wicket code? Learn how to apply Java 8 features such as lambdas and the new DateTime API in your Wicket applications, and learn what else the community is creating for your benefit.

Less code is better and by using Java 8 and Wicket together you can really get your line code down.
