[Get involved in Open source projects]

[Restful HOL -Hands On Lab-]
– Glassfish (application server basically but can do more than that)
– Webservice

[Java Mobile]
– JavaFX :with his magick bind method. The bind method basically allows you to change the value of one variable dynamically. Ex: if i bind x to y and if y is changing (on drag of an image for example) i don’t need to worry about coding to update x.
– More classes to make the programming easier

[Mobile and Embedded Java Update]

– Java Phone (LWUIK)

[Personnal impression]

{Pros – things to remember}
– demo must show new interresting things
– the way people were presenting
– HOL are available for people after the event (because it is quite impossible to finish them and ask questions if you are new to the technology)
– You can ask questions on the author blog
– Importance of local teams in open source project (the maintain the group when you are gone :-))
– The place and decoration is better than the website of the event 🙂

– Marketing of “NetBeans”
– JavaFX is for animation but the environment is not yet as easy for designers (compare to Flash); its more for java developpers who want to do animation.
– Eclipse has already many of the “new features” (many plugins) . So you can choose Net Beans or whatever tool you want but don’t become slave of the tool or … ;-D
– You can’t ask questions in the room (i guess because of the busy schedule and so many people willing to ask more and more questions …).

I was a cool event anyway, new environnement, new people especially for a guy like me who is not java java :-D.
