JavaOne: And so it begins

I've just arrived in SF for my fourth JavaOne conference. Despite the usual chaos this year's prep has gone very well. We have a ton of new things to show you. Most importantly we have the new release of JavaFX. As previously noted it has REDACTED, and REDACTED as well as greater REDACTED to make your apps run. Which, as you can imagine, is totally awesome. And of course the big news is support for REDACTED and REDACTED, as you can see in the screen shot below:


Next up is the project I've been working on for many moons: the Vector project, most likely to be renamed the Java Store, as covered by our CEO. I can't wait for you to see it. As an app developer I'm excited by the possibilities of a good REDACTED. Here's a screenshot:


And of course we got more apps to show you interesting techniques in JavaFX, as well as JavaFX running on REDACTED and even a REDACTED. I can't wait to get my hands on one of those. And we just might have another surprise in store for you. But, unlike everything else I've mentioned, that's not something I can talk about yet.

I'll also be co-presenting the session: Getting Started with WidgetFX: Open-Source Widget Desktop Platform with JavaFXâ„¢ Technology with Stephen Chin. He's got some really funny bunny stuff cooked up.

If you have any more questions about what I've revealed in this eye opening blog post, I'll be in the vendor pavilion for most of the week hanging out on the couches coding. Bring your JavaFX code with you. I'll also be tweeting on the #javaone hashtag.

See you in Moscone. PS: The pavilion and the entire CommunityOne conference are completely free!

Talk to me about it on Twitter
