JavaFX 2.0 at the Chennai JUGsteveonjava | February 21, 2011
I was fortunate enough to be invited to speak at the Chennai Java User Group during my trip to India. I was expecting a small group of very devoted Java fans; however, I was surprised to walk into a room of over 200 developers eager to learn about JavaFX 2.0. The venue was very impressive with rows of workstations that we later used for a lab, as well as plenty of seating.

The session ran from 10AM through 4:30PM with a break for lunch in the middle. When half the hands went up for returning after lunch, I didn’t believe most of them would be back, but we easily had 60% of the folks back in their seats by the time we were ready to start.

Thanks again to the folks in the Chennai JUG for being great hosts!
