  • Dierk Koenig interviewed: Groovy is a pioneer for new ideas

    September 11th, 2015

    Dierk Koenig (JavaOne Rock Star) works as a fellow for Canoo Engineering AG. He is a committer to many open-source projects including OpenDolphin, Frege, Grails and Groovy. In the interview with JAXenter he talks about building user interfaces with projector patterns with HTML5 and JavaFX, Groovy and the W-JAX 2015.

    7 GUIs with OpenDolphin

    July 8th, 2015

    Dierk König discovered 7 GUIs: A Notational Usability Benchmark for GUI Programming and we thought it would be great to have an OpenDolphin implementation of it.

    For me not necessarily the notational usability aspect is important but to find a good OpenDolphin implementation.

    So far I have implemented 3 of the GUIs. In the descriptions of the examples I will explain
    how I implemented them and what I have learned while doing it.

    Some of the 7 GUIs are only concerned with UI toolkit functionality.
    Since I want to focus on the ones which are more insteresting from an OpenDolphin point of view I skipped those for now.

    For the client technology I decided to use JavaFX in a simple programmatic way but will try to find the time to do a HTML GUI in the future.

    Since github supports Asciidoctor I decided to use that format for the descriptions of the individual examples, which brings back the fun in writing and the documentation close to the code.

    When you go through the descriptions I recommend that you look at the original description of 7 GUIs: A Notational Usability Benchmark for GUI Programming.

    Here is the list of the currently implemented GUIs with their descriptions:

    logo_javaland Java conference with a huge fun factor: visitors of the JavaLand 2015 conference will listen to more than 100 Java talks and – as the whim takes them – step on the roller coaster. Of course, Canoo will also settle the Phantasialand. Our speakers will give talks about the issues “Frontend” and “JVM languages”:

    Further information about all conference talks can be found on the official JavaLand Website. We look forward to see you!

    W-JAX 2014 | November 3-7, 2014 | Munich

    November 7th, 2014



    Our speakers Dierk König and Hendrik Ebbers will present three sessions at W-JAX 2014. Their key issues are interactivity in relation to enterprise applications and user interfaces as well as best practices for developing business applications with JavaFX.

    A two day conference pass will be enough to fully appreciate Canoo at the three day conference. Be sure to stop by.

    And incidentally, if you book your ticket by August 7, 2014, you will qualify for an early booking discount.
