Check out this 8-step guide to see how you can increase your productivity by skipping slow application redeploys and by implementing application profiling, as you code! Brought to you in partnership with ZeroTurnaround.

Another podcast filled with info, insights, and innuendo!

Here's the agenda (34.17 mins).

  • 1.00: News. Tinu Awopetu, Managing Editor of NetBeans.org, talks about the NetBeans Calendar (next stop of NetBeans Day is Seoul, South Korea, October 17th, i.e., this Friday!), the 10th birthday of the NetBeans project, and... the NetBeans Decathlon!
  • 3.40: Interview. David Strupl, technical lead of JavaFX support in NetBeans IDE, is interviewed by Lloyd. Find out all about David, his technical background, and what's going on with JavaFX tooling in the IDE. Also find out about JavaFX itself, as well as JavaFX script. How does JavaFX script compare to other scripting languages? And what will the NetBeans tools for JavaFX actually consist of? What makes working on this project interesting? David tells all and asks for user feedback!
  • 15.30: API Design Tip. Are APIs like stars or are they like diamonds? Jaroslav Tulach hooks into a discussion connected to Josh Bloch (here in the comments) about whether APIs are 'stars' or 'diamonds'. What's the difference between these two metaphors and what does the difference say about APIs? (In the process of the discussion, Geertjan shows he's not very smart.)
  • 22:40: NetBeans Innovator Grant Contest. Jirka Kovalsky talks about the NetBeans Innovator Grant Contest. He talks about how shocked he was at the amount of submissions and, then, how impressed he was with their quality. He thanks the NetBeans Dream team for selecting the best 20 proposals and for defining the process/rules as well.
  • 28.30: Project of the Podcast. For the first time, we talk to a NetBeans user on the NetBeans Podcast. Brian Segale, who manages the Solutions Team at DeviceAnywhere, talks about the NetBeans modules they developed for their mobile solutions.
  • 33.00: Puzzler. We announce the previous winner and introduce the next puzzler! Deadline: Friday, October 31, all submissions to nbpodcast@netbeans.org. And, if you write with ideas for future podcasts, and your idea ends up being used, we'll send you a NetBeans t-shirt in gratitude!
