Hi all. Welcome to the first post of the new year! I hope you all had a chance to wind down for a few days over the holidays. I did, but it’s great to be back at work now as I have a lot to get done this year! Today is my sixth wedding anniversary, so please excuse the brevity! Anywho, let’s get into the links 🙂
- Angela Caicedo will be presenting ‘some cool JavaFX stuff‘ this week at the Silicon Valley JavaFX Users Group. If you’re in the area you should definitely consider attending. If you are not, they do a live stream that you can join in on (and chat with others who are also on the stream). I’ll try to be on there…
