NetBeans worldTour - More cities, more code, more fun!

NetBeans WorldTour Join us again when we come to you with demos of upcoming features, IDE tips & tricks, and special guests such as James Gosling. After the wildly popular series of NetBeans events between NetBeans Software Day 2005 and 2006 in San Francisco, the NetBeans team will once again hit the road for a worldTour in 2006/2007.

What To Expect...

The NetBeans worldTour is a FREE and exciting learning opportunity. See first-hand how NetBeans IDE can help you become more productive with its unmatched out-of-the-box experience. Members of the NetBeans team will discuss what's new in the IDE, the Platform and the Add-on Packs -- have a look at the agenda.

This is a great opportunity for community members to connect with each other face-to-face, interact with the NetBeans team, and meet Java luminaries like James Gosling. The dates are organized around Sun Tech Days so you will not only get the latest on NetBeans, but will have an opportunity to see what is new and exciting at Sun Microsystems.

  1. On the Move with NetBeans (50 Minutes)

    If you know NetBeans, then you know we innovate quickly. This session will show you all the latest features and how to best use them to your advantage. You will also get a preview of what you can look forward to in future releases of NetBeans.

  2. Java EE 5 - Did You Get Your Tools With That? (50 Minutes)

    A Key focus of the forthcoming NetBeans 5.5 release is to support Java EE 5 and its related technologies such as EJB 3.0 and Java Persistence. In this session we will demonstrate the new features in NetBeans 5.5 that can help accelerate your development of Java EE 5 applications.

  3. Unpack Your Favorite Feature (50 Minutes)

    NetBeans has fantastic out of the box experience, however, the fun does not stop there. Bundles of additional functionality such as application profiling, Java ME, UML, SOA and C/C++ are available in feature packs. This session will review the various packs so you can choose the ones that work best for you.

  4. Step Onto Our Platform (50 Minutes)

    If you do any type of web development, you most likely use framework, such as JSF or Struts because it helps with many common tasks, such as page navigation. If you are building a Swing application, it most likely also has features in common with all other desktop applications, such as menus, window management and user preferences. This session introduces the NetBeans Platform and how you can take advantage of it as the foundation for building your Swing desktop applications or extending NetBeans itself.

  5. Is This the Enterprise in Your Pocket? (50 Minutes)

    Creating standalone applications for your mobile device can be fun, say a tip calculator or currency converter. However, we're talking about a CONNECTED device, so let's build an application that connects to something. Hey, how about our enterprise data center - so for example, I could track the status of my machines from anywhere in the world? And what if I could build that application using a drag & drop visual designer? Get it to seamlessly run on emulators from Nokia, Sprint and others? Better yet, we'll end the talk by deploying the application over the air (OTA), so audience members can run it on their own phones. Yes, you will literally walk away from this talk with the enterprise in your pocket.
