Chicago JavaFX User Group Pages

I had been working with JavaFX for a while, and discovered there was a lack of information and community for JavaFX developers in the Chicago area. So I started the Chicago JavaFX User Group.

It costs nothing to join, and you don't have to attend meetings if you can't - but I could use your support in building a membership base. I promise not to send you a lot of emails (unless you sign up for them) and, of course you can leave anytime.

Perks: Members will receive 40-50% off books and media from O'Reilly and others, as well as discounted and/or free passes to local events as they become available.

What is JavaFX? If you don't know, you should join and find out!
Seriously though, JavaFX is the next step in the evolution of Java as a rich client platform, shortening development time and easing deployment of data-driven business and enterprise client applications. The JavaFX runtime is built-in to the Java Virtual Machine starting with Java 7, so if you have Java, you have JavaFX!

Example of some seriously graphical JavaFX applications:

JavaFX includes

  • High-performance, hardware-accelerated graphics that enable rich data visualizations and complex user interfaces
  • Web rendering engine that enables you to embed Web content inside Java applications
  • You can add more items by adding lines that start with a
  • More than 50 easily customizable charts, forms, and layout components that can be easily integrated into an application
  • Java APIs for JavaFX; starting with JavaFX 2, all JavaFX applications can be programmed in Java
  • FXML, a scriptable, XML-based markup language for defining user interface
JavaFX Scene Builder is a GUI design tool that uses FXML as its file format
The Netbeans IDE is well-integrated with Scene Builder, but you can also use Eclipse.

Please join us, won't you?
