January 2010 Meeting Information

January 26, 2010
Technical Overview of Java FX

This month's meeting will feature Barry Burd providing a technical overview of JavaFX. What's better than a good windowing API? How about a language that streamlines all aspects of GUI program development? Instead of writing code in a general purpose language, use a no-nonsense declarative language – a language whose purpose is to create cool GUI applications.

JavaFX compiles to the Java virtual machine, and is compatible with other Java technologies. The traditional Java libraries are available in JavaFX. JavaFX provides a smooth learning path. Coding in JavaFX is quick and intuitive, with support for everything from simple "Hello GUI" programs to eye-catching media demos.

Meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month at the Scotch Plains Rescue Squad second floor meeting hall starting promptly at 7:30pm. Meetings are open to the public, and visitors are encouraged to join ACGNJ.
