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!
The audio + slides for many of the JavaFX sessions at JavaOne 2011 are available on parleys.com. I have embedded a few we recommend you watch. There will be more arriving on parleys.com over the next couple weeks as they get processed.
Stephen Chin has just announced that the slides for the third Silicon Valley JavaFX Users Group have been posted online. This talk was by Hinkmond Wong and therefore covered mobile aspects of Java and JavaFX. As I have done for both Richard’s and Amy’s talks previously, I have also embedded the video below for your enjoyment. You can flick between video and the slides by clicking in the top-right area of the player below.
The next talk coming up is a joint talk with the Silicon Valley Web JUG, covering Java Store and JFrog Artifactory. This is on March 10th at 6:00PM at the Googleplex, and 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!
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!
As Richard mentioned recently, he had the honor to be the first official speaker at the first JavaFX user group meeting. You can read the slides from this presentation, and now I have decided to post the video here for those of you wanting to watch it but may have missed the live streaming.
Next up on January 13 is Amy Fowler, who will be talking about layout secrets in JavaFX. Note that this presentation is not at Google – this time it is being held at Sun. As with the first talk, you can also watch the presentation live, and participate both in the chat room, and also pose questions that may be answered by Amy at the talk.
I had the honor to be the first official speaker at the first JavaFX user group meeting (of which I am aware!). The Silicon Valley JavaFX JUG, organized by Stephen Chin (one of the authors of Pro JavaFX, which is an excellent book), met this past Wednesday. Google hosted the event and supplied the evening’s pizza, for which I am personally very grateful!
Stephen had setup a streaming feed so people not in the area could follow along, which I thought was really cool. Its always fun to present about JavaFX as it is something I’m passionately interested in. Yes, working on JavaFX is my day job, but if I didn’t really love it and believe in it I wouldn’t be doing it. The thing that energizes me is knowing both what it is that we have built, and what we are building. It is really a fantastic platform. Its a joy to use when building applications and getting better all the time.
