JSFSummit 2009: PrettyFaces makes an Appearance

PrettyFaces went on the road and presented at JSFSummit 2009 (Dec 1st – 5th, Orlando, FL,) and for those of you who missed it, here are the slides. The presentation wasn’t recorded, but the slides alone are a good read. If you are interested in JavaServer Faces, Url Rewriting, or SEO and best practices, this presentation is for you!

All of the feedback was outstanding, from “Most interesting presentation,” to “Best, most entertaining presentation” – and I should sure hope so. There was a little surprise that everyone seemed to enjoy – read carefully and you’ll find it. (Hint, it’s on page 22.)

Below is a photo taken by one of the attendees – the only proof that the talk actually happened, aside from this. In any case, keep your eyes on PrettyFaces for some cool new features in the next releases – work is still going strong.
