I'm an early adopter of JavaFX Script, and I'm experimenting with the language. Since I've never been too afraid to let you sit next to me as I explore new things, I've decided to share my experience learning JavaFX Script too.
Learning a new technology has its own set of challenges. Sure the technology itself may have quirks -- is that a code word for bugs? -- but sometimes just getting enough information to get started can be tough.
If you're interested in JavaFX Script, you want to make sure you get the right information and resources. Maybe you want to bounce questions around with others. Where do you go? Who do you ask? How do you proceed?
I'm in the same situation. I'm an early adopter of JavaFX Script, and I'm experimenting with the language. Since I've never been too afraid to let you sit next to me as I explore new things, I've decided to share my experience learning JavaFX Script too.
You can read along as I bumble my way along. Maybe you'll learn something. Maybe I'll learn something. Or maybe you'll have a question. Maybe you'll see solutions that I don't. I'll share my experiences though, and you can read them on the Learning Curve, a new article series available on the JavaFX hub of the Sun Developer Network .
I've posted the first part of the series there now. My editors called it "Exploring JavaFX Script." I think of it as my description of how I set up my initial environment and learning resources. So, it's sort of a "Setup" article too. There's more coming. So go check out the first titled Learning Curve Journals, Part 1: Exploring JavaFX Script . Leave a comment, ask a question, and maybe I'll be able to explore your question as part of my own Learning Curve experience. Hey, we're in this together.
