What Do You Want To See At NetBeans Days In FY08?

We are currently planning content for NetBeans days for the next fiscal year. It will be updated to cover NetBeans 6 topics, including technologies such as Swing databinding and application framework, Ruby on Rails, RIA support in NetBeans, JavaFX and other hot topics. We are thinking about featuring some of the interesting plug-ins such as project Jarvis and involve local Java User Groups with the event.

NetBeans Dream Team represents the non-Sun community in these discussions, but I would like to open a possibility for anyone to provide input. What do you think would be really interesting for you to see at NetBeans day? What are the top 3 things we should cover? On the other hand, what are the topics you think we should not cover (e.g. compared to the last NetBeans worldtour)? Let us know using the blog comments and we'll take the feedback as input for the planning. Thanks.

Here's the planning wiki (work in progress).


Integration of Netbeans with various j2ee related technologies - like Application Servers - ORM technologies - new web app frameworks!

How about those strippers?

Yeah, featuring project Jarvis is a very good idea, Toni ;)

Hi Roumen, just my 2 cents: in every place NBD arrives there is a set of local heroes. How about to promote them ? Idea #1: to include a session where local developers using NetBeans can show its creations. Idea #2: how about to create a submission process where the local NetBeans productions can be applied for NetBeans Dream Team evaluation ? Then, the top notch NB team can show the winner with observations about possible enhancements .. Idea #3: I am sure Sun and NB Team can evolve this raw idea to something fun and creative, hope to hear about that ;) One of the comments I received from my community is "all commercial marketing from Sun about NB...". Giving the community a chance to participate can reduce this bad feeling and also to reinforce the idea of NetBeans beign adopted by real people in the local market, instead of a exogenous promise :)

First I want to thank you for asking, because there is otherwise no forum to provide this feedback. Without a doubt the one thing I'd like to see is material about the NetBeans Platform, as opposed to the IDE. Specifically, I'd like to see tutorials, demonstrations and presentations aimed at showing various aspects of platform development. Some idea of a roadmap (potentially with the ability to provide input) for the future of the platform would also be welcome, because there's nothing on the horizon after 6.0 at present.

Hi Roman, we're lucky, we have a NB day in Japan this year :) Who will come?

Information about plugging in 3rd party languages into the IDE, including syntax highlighting, code completion, and use of the visual designer (matisse). I may be wrong, but it doesn't look like there is any 3rd party language (even javafx, scala, ruby, etc.) out there with visual designer support, even in eclipse. I hope there is someone on the javafx team working on this.

I think more activity from local usergroups would be nice. Something along those things Felipe proposes.
So putting my money where my mouth is ;-):
As discussed in Zürich - I could provide some details about current SQE and maybe about our in house platform based application (depends on my superiors - but I may give it a try)
