NetBeans IDE Tips and Links to Tutorials

Geertjan and Roumen have been doing a tremendous job of writing about NetBeans in their blogs. So what I've done is pulled together some links to tips and tutorials that Geertjan and Roumen have included in their blogs. This is only a fraction of the topics on these two blog sites, so please check out the rest of the blog entries on their sites.

Now you stop to think that there are a lot of people writing about NetBeans, so how do we make it easy to collect and access that information? Wouldn't it be nice to easily generate your own categorized list of links to tips and reference material based on your needs and interests? The following list was made using site searches, following links in the blogs, and cutting and pasting a lot of links. If anybody knows of an easier way to generate a list of blog entries by topic, please let me know.

NetBeans Day 2005 Big Success

More than 500 people attended NetBeans Day 2005, filling the conference room to capacity.

JamesJames presented. The room was packed, and people were standing against the walls. It was really exciting to see the turnout. More than 500 people (I'll get the final numbers later) listening to NetBeans presentations on a Sunday afternoon.

JonathanJonathan talked about building developer communities.

Books300 copies of the NetBeans IDE Field Guide were given to the first 300 attendees that picked up their name badges. I am really excited about this book. This book is current for NetBeans 4.1, and it is nice to get another NetBeans book into the retail channels.

Book SigningThe book signing at the reception following the presentations was a success. From left to right: Christopher Webster, Charlie Hunt, Patrick Keegan, and Ludovic Champenois. This book was a real team effort, and I want to thank Patrick, Ludo, Charlie, Chris, and Gregory Crawley for their efforts. Everybody had day jobs, but they took their time to contribute the content, and they worked as a team to make the book happen in time for JavaOne. Thanks again for your hard work.

NetBeans Day Today

NetBeans Day is today, and I'm getting ready to go to San Francisco to help with getting things set up before Registration starts at 11:00. I will post my notes of the day on my blog tonight.

Still time to sign up for NetBeans Day at 2005 JavaOne June 26, 2005

If you will be attending the 2005 JavaOne conference, there is still time to sign up for NetBeans Day on Sunday, June 26, 2005 (full schedule).

Note the promotion where the first 300 attendees will receive a copy of the newly published NetBeans IDE Field Guide. I am particularly excited about this book because it was written by Patrick Keegan, Ludovic Champenois, Gregory Crawley, Charlie Hunt, and Christopher Webster. Patrick is a NetBeans technical writer in Prague, and he has done a great job of making this book a reality.

Patrick Keegan, Ludovic Champenois, and Charlie Hunt will be availabe for a book signing at the Digital Guru, the official conference bookstore at JavaOne this year, from 4:00 to 4:30, Monday, June 27.

Additional NetBeans IDE documents are on the Docs and Support page of netbeans.org. Some of the docs on that page include the Using NetBeans IDE 4.1 guide, which provides a detailed introduction to NetBeans 4.1, and the J2EE 1.4 Tutorial for NetBeans IDE, which is an adapted for NetBeans version of several chapters of the J2EE 1.4 Tutorial.

The Docs and Support page also includes links to documentation for NetBeans IDE 4.0 and NetBeans IDE 3.6, User FAQs, Knowledge Base, and the Module Developer's Resources. The Knowledge Base is the place to go for documents contributed by the open source community, and that page includes user-translated versions of some of the NetBeans IDE docs and additional topics of interest to developers.
