JavaFX game is out of this world!

You may have seen quite a few blogs and articles this past week talking about a new game that helps you learn JavaFX.  Although the game began in March, it's not too late to get involved!  The clues and theories are flying fast and furious and the team needs help to uncover the next JUMP!  Keep reading for the all details...

The PIE Theory is heralded by researchers Baron Rude and Hector Macchiato who believe that unexplained paranormal events are omens of a massive change in the direction of mankind. They have collected evidence throughout history where significant leaps in technology, science, and agriculture – known as a JUMP – were preceded by strange sightings and visitations. Both believe that another JUMP is about to occur and are asking for your help to track events and uncover the truth about the phenomena.

To take part, register at the PIE Theory Web site and download the toolkit, which contains JavaFX 1.1 and NetBeans 6.5. Both of these programs will help you help Baron and Hector unlock the clues for the next JUMP, and as a bonus, teach you JavaFX in the process.

You will use JavaFX to help Baron and Hector unlock the clues about the next JUMP – when and where it will happen, and what it will entail. The PIE Theory already has a wide network of collaborators and is actively collecting clues on their Wiki. So join current team members who are already working together on the PIE Network Forum, OSUM, Facebook, MySpace, and YouTube and recruit others to help prepare for the next JUMP!
