Hydro4GE provides custom software, web and interactive
marketing solutions. We also sell and maintain Pario, a tool for developing and maintaining web-based applications.

Google I/O, RaphaelGWT and our Private Beta

Sound like a lot? Well it is. We’ve got quite a bit going on here at Pario in addition to our client work – sorry that we’ve neglected to keep you in the loop.

Google I/O

We were invited to participate in the Developer Sandbox at Google I/O this year. I/O is Google’s largest developer conference and hosts over 4,000 developers over the 2 day conference. The conference is being held May 19-20, 2010 in San Francisco, CA.

We’re looking forward to not only showing off Pario there, but also taking a peek at what other developers are doing. If you were fortunate enough to book a ticket before they sold out, stop on by!


RaphaelGWT allows you to integrate GWT with Raphaël, a lightweight JavaScript library for cross-platform vector graphics. Raphaël side-steps the need for HTML canvas by using SVG on supported platforms, and Microsoft VML on Internet Explorer. Although we had planned on doing this at some point, seeing some interest on some developer forums pushed this to the top of the list. Visit the RaphaelGWT project on Google Code.

The Private Beta

As some of you know, we have invited a handful of users to try Pario in a limited fashion. Sorry if you didn’t get chosen, but we’ll be sure to include you in the upcoming Public Beta (TBD). We’re hearing a lot of positive feedback and can’t wait to share it with everyone. Stay tuned for more.
