Opinionated JavaFX 8
How to build an app with Java FX? WYSIWYG or manual hacking? How to integrate with Java EE backend? What is a Presenter, Controller or a View? Do we need data binding?
In this virtual session I would like to introduce you to Java FX 8 from the application perspective with focus on structure, architecture and (software) design.
