Develop Java Desktop application with Netbeans
By Zhiqi Tao on Mar 19, 2008
On 20th March I made my second Campus Ambassador demo titled "Develop Java desktop applications with Netbeans 6.0" in the University of Melbourne. The whole demo lasted about 50 minutes. 23 students and staff sent me their RSVP and about 40 people eventually attended seminar, which is a great turned up rate.

To clarify some misconception about Java performance, I played another video about Java Game, which is very fancy and eye-catching. I also downloaded a desktop strategy game, Tribal Trouble, and run it in live. I demonstrate how smooth it is during 3D rendering, zoom in and zoom out.

To clarify the misconception about Java GUI, I demonstrated a few screen shot of Java GUI program run on different platforms and ran a complex musical program, Storm Music Studio, in live.
Then, I introduced Netbeans and created a simple Java Desktop program, a calculator in live.

Thanks for Peng Deng's help! He recorded a short video during my demo.
In the end I finished my talk with standard promotion about Sun Academic Initiative program and then took a number of questions.
