A lot has happened since I last blogged. The JFXStudio hit 33k hits with 50 posts, I've started working on a new secret project built with JavaFX, and we had a rockin' booth at SXSW last week. I'll cover SXSW and our new party app in another blog soon. First things first: Developer Challenges!
Sun is launching a JavaFX Coding Challenge where the top prize is $25,000. It starts March 23rd and goes until just before JavaOne (May 29th). Sadly I cannot enter as I will be judging the contest along with a few other engineers and Mr. Java, James Gosling himself. I've been eagerly awaiting this competition because I want to see crazy things people do with JavaFX technology. And a note to students, there is a special category just for registered college students with it's own prize. So go sign up today .
But of course, what better way to celebrate a big challenge than with a little challenge. JFXStudio.org is announcing a mini developer contest. You can win one of three eBook alpha release copies of the great new JavaFX book: Pro JavaFX
