FX Experience Has Gone Read-Only

I've been maintaining FX Experience for a really long time now, and I love hearing from people who enjoy my weekly links roundup. One thing I've noticed recently is that maintaining two sites (FX Experience and JonathanGiles.net) takes more time than ideal, and splits the audience up. Therefore, FX Experience will become read-only for new blog posts, but weekly posts will continue to be published on JonathanGiles.net. If you follow @FXExperience on Twitter, I suggest you also follow @JonathanGiles. This is not the end - just a consolidation of my online presence to make my life a little easier!

tl;dr: Follow me on Twitter and check for the latest news on JonathanGiles.net.

Some really great news I’ve had to keep under my hat for the past few months is that the Vancouver Olympics website has chosen JavaFX for a really cool visualization. It is an exceptionally well done application with stunning UI and does a terrific job showing off the potential of JavaFX in data visualization scenarios.

Go and check out the application running live. It has data going back many years showing how many metals were won by different countries over time, which athletes won which metals, and so on. It is built and delivered on the publicly shipping release of JavaFX. Really exciting for JavaFX!
