Free Virtual Developer Day -- May 14, 9:00 - 13:00 in Europe/Middle East/Africa

I was recently involved in helping to put together part of the Virtual Developer Day, which was interesting and fun to do. The first of these was held last week in a US timezone. This week, on Wednesday you can attend it too/again, from 9:00 to 13:00 in Britain, one hour later in central Europe, etc, times below:

  • 9:00 AM  - 1:00 PM BST
  • 10:00 AM  - 2:00 PM CEST
  • 12:00 Noon - 4:00 PM GST
  • 12:00 Noon - 4:00 PM MSK

The sessions have been made especially for this event, covering Java SE, Java embedded, and Java EE. For example, amongst others, Simon Ritter talks about the new features of Java 8, Stephen Chin and Gerrit Grunwald talk about JavaFX, while Anegla Caicedo discusses Java embedded. Many examples and code demos are included and you'll see how all these technologies fit together.

Below is what it will look like, once you're logged in, which you can only do at the right time, i.e., shortly before the first session begins. Also, you can chat with each other and with the moderators, some of whom are the speakers in the sessions. For example, last week I attended and answered a lot of questions about NetBeans.

Make sure you can join in by getting everything set up on time, which you can do here.

The focus of this blog is mostly on NetBeans (a development tool primarily for Java programmers), with an occasional reference to NetBeans, and sometimes diverging to topics relating to NetBeans. And then there are days when NetBeans is mentioned, just for a change.
