A couple of months ago Eelco and I were interviewed by Bruno Pereira for a Brazilian Java magazine. Unfortunately for us this interview was done through email, so no carnival for us. Maybe next year :). You can read the interview here.
I was a Windows client developer used to build GUI's with Borland's VCL. Then I had to build web apps using Maverick and Velocity. I hated that experience and constantly asked myself: WHY is this so hard and so much work. Wicket salvaged me from this negative experience: it felt like returning to VCL programming and for the first time I enjoyed
building web apps.
