It’s a public holiday here in New Zealand today, so I’ll be keeping this brief. Nonetheless – enjoy! 🙂
- This week Adam Bien is presenting at the Silicon Valley JavaFX Users Group about ‘MVC, DI with JavaFX with 3 Classes’. If you are local, you can attend in person, but if you aren’t, it is also live streamed.
- Dirk Lemmermann has posted another in his series of JavaFX missing features, this time discussing CSS.
- Jens Deters has a blog post about ‘Button of Choice: Use ToggleButtons as RadioButtons’.
- Edvin Syse has posted a video titled ‘Type safe JavaFX CSS with TornadoFX‘.
A really busy week of links this week – you’ve all been very busy! 🙂
Well, it’s been an eventful week for FX Experience – the site was hacked and turned into a spambot, so we had to shut it down. Once the dust settled we brought the site back to life, but as you can see not without some collateral damage – it was easier and quicker to bring a new theme back online rather than ‘disinfect’ the FX Experience theme that had been totally overcome by spam malware. Jasper Potts did all of this, and even found time to create a new FX Experience logo that you can see in the top-left. With the site alive once more, lets get on with the news! 🙂
I’m a bit late with the links this week – apologies. It was a quiet week this past week, but in any case, I hope you enjoy the following links.
- Tom Eugelink continues to explore building mobile JavaFX applications using Gluon technologies.
- The bitsquare project released a new version of their client. Bitsquare is a “cross-platform desktop application that allows users to trade national currency (dollars, euros, etc) for bitcoin without relying on centralized exchanges such as Coinbase, Bitstamp or (the former) Mt. Gox.”
- Michael Hoffer has a presentation from a recent Devoxx conference about ‘algorithmic 3-D modeling, language modeling and visual programming’, where a lot of the technology he uses is JavaFX-based.
A heap of great links this week – enjoy 🙂
