I am pleased to announce the formation of a new Silicon Valley JavaFX User Group. While this group is rooted in the SF Bay Area, we also plan to make it easy for remote attendees to watch and participate by doing live streaming of our meetings via USTREAM and allowing remote participation through Google Moderator.
For the initial launch meeting on December 9th we are fortunate to have Richard Bair as the presenter. For those of you who don’t know him, he is a JavaFX lead developer, JavaOne Rockstar Speaker, has an awesome blog, and will be talking about JavaFX at Devoxx (where I am also presenting). He is also a great sparring partner on almost any technical topic (speaking from experience), so Q&A should be lots of fun!
The SvJugFx Homepage is on Meetup.com where you can sign up to become a member and register for the December 9th session with Richard:
This is the first JavaFX User Group in the U.S. to my knowledge. Although Japan has the title of world’s first JavaFX User Group as reported on Jim Weaver’s blog.
