JavaFX Coding Challenge student winner Diego Benna talks JavaFX

Student Views and Reviews recently sat down with Diego Benna, developer of the Real Track Car Race application, and one of the student winners of the JavaFX Coding Challenge. Diego is a student at Padua University, Italy where he is studying IT. Diego began using JavaFX in January after reading about it on Sun's Web site. He was immediately “fascinated by the effects and the simplicity of the code,” which was all he needed to try it out and “found that it was very easy to use.” Diego taught himself the programming language by studying the code examples on JavaFX.com.

Diego stated that the most useful aspect of JavaFX in creating Real Track Car Race was “the simplicity in creating a graphical interface.” He also pointed out how easy it was to make a data mashup with JavaFX, which allowed him to design the application to allow users to select their own race route through Yahoo! maps.

Read more of Diego's interview and listen to him talk about JavaFX, and how he used it to build his winning Real Track Car Race application in a podcast in Student Views and Reviews.
