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.

Amy Fowler recently gave a talk to the Silicon Valley JavaFX Users Group covering her work on the JavaFX layout APIs. Her talk covers what we have now, as well as a sneak peak at what the plans are for JavaFX 1.3 (with plans still subject to change, etc). The video is embedded below for your viewing pleasure. Apologies to your ears for the first 10 minutes – there was a bit of trouble with the microphone – but it does improve after that.

Next up is Hinkmond Wong who will be presenting about mobile Java, including JavaME and JavaFX. This is on February 10th at 6:00PM at the Sun campus. You can find all other relevant details at the link above. Be sure to RSVP if you plan to attend, virtually or in person. Remember that attending virtually allows for you to watch the presentation live, and interact with both the presenter via Google moderator questions, as well as taking part in chat with others attending virtually. So it’s not much worse than being there in person!
