The Linux Users' Group of Davis (LUGOD) meeting


"'WidgetFX', a JavaFX-based widget platform"
Stephen Chin, Lead Developer, WidgetFX and JFXtras
and co-author of "Pro JavaFX Plarform"

WidgetFX is a desktop widget platform written in the JavaFX Script language.
It can run widgets written in either JavaFX Script or Java and takes
advantage of the latest features in Java SE 6.

Note: Since first scheduling this talk for LUGOD, JavaFX 2 has been
released, which will require a rewrite of WidgetFX. Stephen will discuss
what has changed in JavaFX, and what's needed to get WidgetFX ported,
and how others can help.

This meeting will be held at:

Yolo County Library, Mary L. Stephen's Davis Branch
Blanchard Community Room
315 East 14th Street
Davis, California 95616
