JavaFX 2.0 With Alternative Languages and Visage

Please see here for a photo and directions: JavaFX has a new API face. All the JavaFX 2.0 APIs will be exposed via Java classes that will make it much easier to integrate Java server and client code. This also opens up some huge possibilities for JVM language integration. This session will take you through a whirlwind tour of four different JVM languages (Ruby, Clojure, Groovy, and Scala) showing what JavaFX 2.0 code may look like when ported to these different languages. In addition, details of Visage, the JavaFX Script successor, will be unveiled. Watching the Live Stream Online

    Streaming was excellent. I would like to have seen some demos of the code running, but it is really cool that other languages can/will be used with JavaFX

    Very much appreciated the fine presentation of the various alternative languages. Nice to see the examples all based on familiar JavaFX usages. I have been curious about these alternatives for a while. In some cases this was my first look, e.g., Clojure which is very intriguing with its optimization for concurrency. Am a bit surprised Jython didn't rate more attention, but I assume Stephen has a very good grasp of the best alternative paths, and I trust his judgment.

    I've never heard Steve present before. He did a good job on a very interesting subject. I would like to see more topics on Scala; in particular using Scala in the User Interface.
