IFCX presentation at July LAJUG & OCJUGI will be making my debut (meaning there are more ideas than code, but then that's always the case with me) presentation introducing IFCX at the July LA Java User's Group on Tuesday July 11th. There will be an encore performance at the July Orange County Java User's Group on Thursday July 13th.
TITLE: Jim White Shows Off His New Thing
(aka Introducing IFCX : Internet Foundation Classes eXtreme!)
Topics currently planned include:
- A Brief History of GUI Technological Innovation
- Introducing IFCX : The Web is The Computer!
- GWT : AJAX with Google Web Toolkit
- IFCX : AppletServer ("Any Toolkit, Any Deployment")
- IFCX : Ant Anywhere
- IFCX : Web Site Publishing with JSPWiki
- IFCX : Semantic Web Wikification System
- And a Special Surprise (or two)!
There is also bound to be ranting about the Java GUI Trail of Tears, Open Source and Java, Java Renaissance, the Evil of Software Patents, and who knows what else. So don't miss it! Although if you do, you will have a second chance as the presentation will be videotaped.
