SvJugFx Streamed Live with Richard Bair

8 12 2009

For those of you who don’t know, SvJugFx stands for the Silicon Valley JavaFX Users Group.  We will be holding our very first meeting this coming Wednesday with a live, streamed presentation from the world renowned Richard Bair (who is now infamous for divulging JavaFX secrets at Devoxx).

Yes, I said streamed live…  for those of you who are not fortunate enough to live in Silicon Valley, you can still participate in realtime by doing the following:

  1. Sign-up for the SvJugFx meetup group.  This is the primary communication vehicle we will use to announce last-minute changes:
    http://www.svjugfx.org/
    (Note: Everyone can sign up for the group, but please only RSVP for the event if you are physically attending)
  2. For the video feed, please go to the following ustream channel:

  3. And to participate, please log on to Google Moderator at the following URL:

The in-person meeting will start on: Wednesday at 6PM PST
The online streaming will start at latest by: 7PM PST (possibly earlier)

Please leave enough time to login on both sites and test your internet and video playback capabilities.  You will be able to watch the live video stream on ustream and respond with your own questions (as well as vote other participant’s questions up and down) via Google Moderator, which we will be monitoring during the presentation.

This is the first time we are trying this format, so we apologize in advance for technical glitches or issues that we are sure will arise.

It was a good presentation. Unfortunately, we were all stunningly unsuccessful in our attempts to pry information out of Richard Bair regarding future release dates for new language features, components, and tools. He adroitly side-stepped/ignored all such questions. So Mr. Bair probably gets an A from Sun’s marketing department, which, in Apple-esque fashion is skillfully keeping a very tight lid on internal development progress and stopping all leaks, but a C from the community which would really benefit from a bit more open communication. Oh well.
