    Judging by many of the questions asked, this group seems to need a "basics" meetup coving the fundamental questions like what is JavaFX, why and when did it begin, what was the motivation for it, design philosophy, etc. Differences between competing products, is it a compiled a interpreted language, etc. Something that might even be able to be given by a Sun marketing person or manager.

    Amy does an awesome job in explaining the upcoming features in 1.3, this in addition to what is there in 1.2 Javafx layouts. The session was really informative. Good job Amy. It will be more helpful if there are more demos using javafx with popular technologies or frameworks instead of all slides. Also looking forward to upcoming meetup for javafx mobile in Feb.
