JavaFX student winner Kazuki Hamasaki talks about CalcFX application

Student Views and Reviews recently spoke with Kazuki Hamasaki, developer of CalcFX, and one of the student winners of the JavaFX Coding Challenge. Kazuki is an Information and Computer Science student at Kagoshima University in Japan, where he is currently working on research in evolutionary computation. Kazuki began using JavaFX in May, after learning about the contest from a laboratory supervisor at his University. Kazuki used sample programs and API documents to learn the program and said β€œI thought it would be easy to learn JavaFX, because I had been using Java for research in my school.”

Kazuki found JavaFX's ability to execute on a variety of platforms to be the most useful feature when developing CalcFX. As a result, Kazuki designed CalcFX be platform independent, making it deployable in desktop, web, and mobile environments. Kazuki especially appreciated this feature, because, as he said, β€œin Java, you have to use a different way for each environment.” He also noted that JavaFX makes the user interface richer, by providing many filter effects on graphics.

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