- We are very happy to hear that Greenfoot was awarded the 2010 Premier Award for Excellence in Engineering Education Courseware, a prize given to systems that show “high-quality, engaging, non-commercial learning innovations designed to enhance engineering education.”
- Greenfoot is a pedagogical tool for teaching computer programming that allows students to use the full Java programming language to create games and simulations.
- The GUI Builder allows developers to create, name, and place UI components, and then generate the code for a UI state machine which controls the UI logic.
- More information, and a 4-part tutorial with videos showing how this works, on http://lwuit.blogspot.com.
- JavaOne going I18N: Brazil and China.
- Alexis: we already talked about this on the last episode, but I got to play around with NetBeans 7 beta and new language constructs from recent OpenJDK builds and it's just really fun. Reminds me of the excitement of early Java 5 (Tiger!) days. NetBeans doesn't just support those language constructs, it even offers hints to adopt them. In fact Arun has just release a video showing this all : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuaVMwL5x24
- Terrence: Just got a Beagle Board and a Guru Plug. Will start putting Linux and Java on these and create some cool embedded demos. We are also working on a "Java Embedded Client" starter kit which includes information on how to get started with embedded Java.
