Hacking JavaFX with Groovy, Clojure, Scala, and Visage
Wednesday, August 22, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (CDT)
Presented by Stephen Chin
JavaFX 2 is the next version of a revolutionary rich client platform for developing immersive desktop applications. One of the new features in JavaFX 2 is a set of pure Java APIs that can be used from any JVM language, opening up tremendous possibilities. This presentation demonstrates the potential of using JavaFX 2 together with alternative languages such as Groovy, Clojure, and Scala. It also will showcase the successor to JavaFX Script, Visage, a DSL with features specifically targeted at helping create clean UIs.
Stephen Chin is a Java Evangelist at Oracle specializing in UI technology and co-author of the Pro JavaFX Platform 2 title, which is the leading technical reference for JavaFX. He has been featured at Java conferences around the world including Devoxx, Codemash, OSCON, J-Fall, GeeCON, Jazoon, and JavaOne, where he twice received a Rock Star Award. In his evenings and weekends, Stephen is an open-source hacker, working on projects including ScalaFX, a DSL for JavaFX in the Scala language, Visage, a UI oriented JVM language, JFXtras, a JavaFX component and extension library, and Apropos, an Agile Project Portfolio scheduling tool written in JavaFX.
