I was recently interviewed by jaxenter.com regarding JavaFX 11 / OpenJFX. The interview was done together with Johan Vos, Jonathan Giles, and Donald Smith. The interview was published in three parts. They can be found here: Part 1: JavaFX 11: First impressions, a look back and a leap forward Part 2: JavaFX 11: What’s changed, and what’s stayed the same Part 3: JavaFX 11 under the microscope: “There’s a lot more going on with JavaFX than anyone gives it credit for”
The holidays are over, time to get serious, time to fill the session catalogue for the JavaFX Days Zurich (Website). We managed to convince some of the best JavaFX experts to come to Switzerland and to show us the things they work on or work with. So without further ado here is a list of the currently scheduled sessions: JavaFX State of the Union Wolfgang Weigend, Oracle Corp. The current state of JavaFX UI development will be explained from the perspective of Oracle, with an inventory of existing development resources and the continuation of JavaFX in a free [...]
I had already been informed a few weeks ago that I won one of the JavaOne Rockstar awards but today the award finally arrived. After planting a tree, building a house, marrying, having kids, and now this award there are probably not many achievements anymore waiting for me to unlock them.

This week I had the pleasure to give my JavaOne 2016 presentations at JUG Poznan in Poland. I compressed all three talks into a two hour talk and I think it worked out well and gave the attendance a good idea what can be accomplished with JavaFX technology. Sebastian Pozoga, a member of JUG Poznan, recorded the session and made it available on YouTube. So if you are interested in "JavaFX vs. Swing", "JavaFX Real World Applications" or "JavaFX Tips & Tricks" then check them out. Again, thank you to PSI Poland for sponsoring this trip. [...]

At this year's JavaOne conference in San Francisco I will be presenting a session called "JavaFX Tips and Tricks". This talk will be based on the posts in my blog. However, I have a feeling that there are many more nice tips and tricks out there that should be mentioned in this presentation. So I am asking everybody to mail me their cool tricks and tips for inclusion. Let everybody benefit from your experiences! Anybody who sends input will of course be mentioned by name and their twitter handle and / or website will be listed as part of the slides.
