The JavaFX Workshop with Gerrit Grunwald and Dierk König attracted over 50 interested participants at W-JAX 2012. Claudia Fröhling from JAXenter spoke with Gerrit about the future potential of JavaFX. The Canoo visualization expert was delighted at the positive resonance at the workshop and revealed why in his view JavaFX is now indispensable. And so is the framework – as a successor to Swing – merely a flashy gimmick or already enterprise ready? Gerrit provides a clear answer. Here you can view the whole interview.
When it comes to Java, web and mobile technologies, Groovy and robotics: Devoxx offers a great deal more than just Java. Andres Almiray and Gerrit Grunwald put Groovy and JavaFX in their true light on the stage in the Kinepolis Centre. Andres Almiray presented the Groovy based testing framework “Spock” and delivered a talk entitled “Rocket Propelled Java”. Meanwhile, Gerrit Grunwald provided his audience with a basic overview of JavaFX and demonstrated the creation of a custom control.
Interesting sessions, convivial visitors and much fun contributed to Devoxx’s special atmosphere. And the conference’s high entertainment value is apparently not just down to its exceptional location; the organisation team’s motto von Entwicklern, für Entwickler (by developers, for developers) further won the audience over. Here you can view the video of the Welcome Keynote and several pictures from Devoxx 2012.
