We are excited to announce our April 2009 meeting will be about JavaFX! JavaFX runs on top of the Java VM and seamlessly lets you build and deploy Rich Internet Applications on the desktop, the browser (as applet or WebStart), or on mobile devices. Speaker Jim Clarke, from Sun Microsystems, will provide a comprehensive introduction to JavaFX that will let you get started in building rich applications on the JVM.
As always, if you plan to attend, make sure to bring a colleague. An RSVP email will be sent later, so be sure to respond so we can plan accordingly. There will be food and plenty of prizes and giveaways.
