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.

Welcome to another week of JavaFX links šŸ™‚ This week we have the following interesting links:

  • Coming up on November 10 is the next Silicon Valley JavaFX Users Group talk, which is also broadcast in video live to those not in the Silicon Valley area. The November talk is Stephen Chin reprising the talk he and I gave at JavaOne on JavaFX 2.0 using alternative languages (for those unwilling to wait until November 10, you can find the slides we used on my blog). He will also be giving more details on project Visage, the fork of the JavaFX Script compiler to support the JavaFX Script language on JavaFX 2.0 and alternate GUI toolkits.
  • Martin Ryzl has put up a screencast on how to use new data sources in JavaFX Composer in the NetBeans 6.10 M1 IDE.
  • IBM DeveloperWorks has an article up on how to ‘use JavaFX to quickly create applications‘, with the subtitle of ‘JavaFX + Eclipse IDE = Easy GUI’
  • Last week I mentioned that Kim Topley has released a new book about JavaFX 1.3. This week there is an excerpt from this book available at InformIT. It covers JavaFX effects and blends.

That’s us for another week – I hope you found one or two of them interesting. Catch you all in a weeks time.
