Presentation: JavaFX 2.0

Track: Technology Wednesday / Time: Wednesday 14:30 - 15:15 / Location: Don Giovanni 2

JavaFX is an environment for building rich client applications. Using a scenegraph at its core and providing many advanced features, e.g. effects, animations, media-support, it greatly simplifies the task of implementing expressive user interfaces with engaging user experience. The API is entirely provided as a Java API making it also available for other programming languages that run on top of the JVM. In this talk we will take a look at JavaFX 2.0 from a developer's perspective. Explaining the underlying concepts of the API and touching some of the more advanced features, all major components of the API will be covered. After this talk you will have a clear understanding of the possibilities JavaFX 2.0 provides, which will enable you to make sound decisions how it may help you in your future projects. You will also be aware of the basic concepts which will help you to get started quickly with JavaFX 2.0.
