Austria in Prague

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.
