Today I have an interview with David Grieve. For those new to this series, here are the people who have been interviewed so far:
Let’s get into the interview! Enjoy 🙂
Hi there. Thanks for taking the time to do this quick interview. Can you please introduce yourself?
Sure. I’m a member of the JavaFX team at Oracle. I’m primarily responsible for the CSS implementation, but I’ll take credit for almost anything that makes you say, “Wow. Cool!” As far as street cred, I’ve been coding in Java since the 1.0 days.
Is this your first time presenting at JavaOne, or are you a JavaOne veteran?
The first time I presented at JavaOne, I gave a part of a talk on JavaFX script. I’ve given several talks since then.
What are you going to talk about at JavaOne?
I have three presentations, two of which are centered around CSS. One is a tutorial on the JavaFX CSS API and another is on ‘hacking’ unsupported CSS features like transitions. The third presentation is a BOF where I hope to share some of what I’ve learned about debugging JavaFX.
Do you have any big announcements or releases planned leading up to (or at) JavaOne? Can you give any hints? 😉
I’m not Larry Ellison, so I’m not allowed to say anything. But then again, anything I would say is public knowledge.
Thanks for taking time out of your day to answer these questions! All the best for your JavaOne talks!
