Austria in Prague

Around 50 students from various universities in Austria came to see us at Sun in Prague on Thursday. The students are visiting a range of companies (e.g., Siemens and Skoda too) all over the place, it seems. We did presentations on Sun, OpenSolaris, NetBeans IDE, and GlassFish. Here's a pic that shows the general setting, with Petr Jiricka opening the day with a presentation about Sun:

I had the honor of introducing NetBeans IDE and here is my presentation. I really stressed the Java angle (since we had been told the students wanted to hear about Java and Sun), i.e., that Sun supports Java development by providing tools and how the NetBeans team creates all those tools and delivers them in the form of NetBeans IDE. It was pretty cool—during my presentation I developed an application which the GlassFish guys deployed during theirs, showing the seamless integration between development and deployment via the IDE. The questions and discussion at the end were interesting, about UML, Eclipse, plugins, the NetBeans Java editor, NetBeans Platform, and future developments of NetBeans IDE.

    Hi Geertjan!

    I have a talk coming up on NetBeans UML tools. What areas of NetBeans UML did you focus? I am currently planning to focus on:

    1. Code Generation

    2. Reverse Engineering

    3. Creating new UML projects - platform dependent/platform indeendet

    What do you think?
