Naked Objects is a full-stack, open source Java framework for building enterprise apps. The twist is that you do this just by writing the domain objects that sit in the domain model; Naked Objects takes care of the UI and persistence layers for you. In this talk we'll learn by doing: we'll choose an application domain together and then I'll code it up for you. Along the way we can talk about extensibility, customization, testing, prototyping vs deployment, and whatever else comes up. And in a blatant attempt to ensure the session is interactive, there'll be a free copy of Dan's book to the person asking the most (relevant!) questions.
