Java desktop links of the week, September 22

It’s one week until JavaOne kicks off – I can’t wait to get over there and to catch up with a bunch of you. This week there are a bunch of good links too, so enjoy! :-)

JavaFX

That’s all folks. If everything goes to plan, the next post will be done from San Francisco sometime around the start of JavaOne. For those that are attending – safe travels and I look forward to seeing you there. For those that are not, follow along on twitter :-)

Java desktop links of the week, September 15

Two weeks until JavaOne – now I’m starting to get excited (and also overwhelmed by how much preparation I still have to do!). On with the links! :-)

JavaFX

Swing

Catch you all next week.

Java desktop links of the week, September 8

Not long now until JavaOne, so I hope everyone that is presenting is getting things sorted out! :-) Here’s the weeks links – enjoy! :-)

JavaFX

That’s all for this week. Catch you again next week!

Java desktop links of the week, September 1

It’s September folks! That’s the same month that JavaOne starts! We’re well and truly getting into the final countdown for JavaOne now – I hope people are starting to get prepared. I wish I could say I was more prepared than I am, but I’m sure I’ll get there in time. Anyway, a good set of links this week, so enjoy!

JavaFX

  • Given we’re only a few weeks out from JavaOne, I’ve started publishing short interviews with some people who will be presenting. So far I have interviews with Eugene Ryzhikov, Mikael Grev, and Stephen Chin. I’ll be publishing more in the lead-up to JavaOne.
  • Speaking of JavaOne, people are starting to post summaries of what they will be presenting at JavaOne. I’ll post links to these whenever I find them. This week Adam Bien, Hendrik Ebbers and I have posted our JavaOne talks.
  • I’m arranging the 5th annual Java desktop lunch. If you’re going to be at JavaOne and want to come along, please register your interest now so that I can be in touch with the details.
  • Adam Bien recently presented to the Virtual JUG on the topic of ‘Opinionated JavaFX‘, where he spoke about how he recommends building JavaFX applications, behind the scenes of afterburner.fx and finally he gave a walk through of floyd.
  • Jens Deters has announced that MQTT.fx 0.0.7 has been released. This release includes ‘scripting support, setup/re-configuration tool, a reviewed connection profile editor, and a reviewed UI and style’. It’s looking very nice.
  • Jens Deters has also announced the release of FontAwesomeFX 8.0.9, which includes support for 40 additional icons from FontAwesome 4.2.0.
  • Hendrik Ebbers has posted more screenshots of the AeroFX project that is being undertaken by Matthias Meidinger. It’s looking good!
  • I’ve got no involvement (or really even any interest) in Bitcoin at present, but I thought it was cool to come across Bitsquare this week, which has a nice looking client written in JavaFX (scroll down to watch the video). The code appears to be open source too. Good stuff!

That’s all folks. Catch you again next week! :-)
