Hi Steve,
Thanks for arranging next meet up "hands on JavaFX".
?If you see any value add, I will be interested in assisting you for the command line side of the application. So for Hello World,?I could? show?how to compile and run JavaFx app from command line. I would also show how to read command line argument and echo it back. if there is enough time I would?add simple calculator or a clock.
Thanks for doing these things for us, so we can continue to progress.
Have a great weekend.

Announcing a new Meetup for Silicon Valley JavaFX Users Group!

What: Hands on JavaFX - Scripting the Scene Graph

When: Wednesday, April 14,[masked]:00 PM

Oracle Corporation
500 Oracle Pkwy
Redwood City, CA 94065

This presentation is a hands-on introduction to JavaFX, focusing primarily on using the JavaFX Script language to drive interactive graphics using the JavaFX scene graph. I'll start with a "Hello, world" program and build it up piece by piece until we have a complete application. At each step of the way, we'll see the code in NetBeans and run it so you can see the results immediately. I'll be covering the following features of the JavaFX platform: language and scene graph basics, sequences, functions, layout, UI controls, classes, calling Java, bind, bound functions, animation, and effects.

NEW LOCATION: This meetup will be held at Oracle headquarters in Redwood Shores.
