My Devoxx university session yesterday was packed, which was awesome! It was 3 hours of hard-core JavaFX knowledge, and almost everyone stayed for the duration. Aaron Houston got a great shot of the venue (more on the Java Champions site):
I posted my slides on SlideShare, so check it out when you get a chance. Special thanks to my co-authors, Jim, Weiqi, and Dean for help with the content.
For those of you at Devoxx, I also posted a new LearnFX question. Please launch it with the link below and respond before or during my conference session tomorrow at 1:30PM to be eligable to win a prize!
More updates after my conference session tomorrow!

Next week I will be giving two talks on JavaFX at Devoxx in Belgium. The first is a university session on Tuesday at 13:30 called The JavaFX Platform – A Java Developer’s Guide. The second is a technical session on Thursday at 14:00 entitled Pro Javafx – Developing Enterprise Applications.
Leading up to both these sessions I will post a question via the LearnFX application. To win a prize, all you have to do is:
- Answer the question correctly using the LearnFX client (see below)
- Come to the next Devoxx session I am speaking at
- Winners will be selected by a random drawing from all the correct responses
Here is the LearnFX client displaying the first question. To run it, make sure that you have a recent version (update 14 or later) of Java SE 6, and simply click on the launch button:
Please don’t ruin this for others by mentioning the answer!
The prizes include several copies of Pro JavaFX Platform and a limited edition WidgetFX T-Shirt. I don’t know about you, but I know which prize I would pick:
WidgetFX Limited run T-Shirt - original artwork by Keith Combs (WidgetFX Developer)
There will also be an opportunity for audience members to answer simply by using a laptop or mobile Twitter client (more details on this at the start of the session), so you don’t have to respond in advance to win.
Thanks to Jim Weaver for the excellent LearnFX application, and I look forward to seeing you at my Devoxx talks!
