Learning to Use NetBeans Effectively
By Roman Strobl on XII 30, 2005
I like flash demos and flash tutorials of NetBeans. Let me explain you why. When you read a tutorial on a web site, it takes quite a long time and you have to try everything yourself. And I'm mostly too lazy to do that (I guess I'm not the only person with this problem in this universe). If you watch a flash demo explaining the features of the IDE instead, it helps you learn it visually (and in case of some demos even acousticly). So it's a very natural way to learn to use the IDE.
Two members of NetBeans community, Claudio Miranda and Paris Apostolopoulos contributed 3 new demos into our growing list. I recommend to check them out:
Reusing custom GUI components using palette, by Claudio Miranda
Tips for GUI building, by Claudio Miranda.
Demo of Developer Collaboration in NetBeans 5.0 beta2, by Paris Apostolopoulos.
