I will have both the pleasure and honor of hosting a full-day workshop about Java on mobile devices. Titled Ménage à trois, we will be taking a closer look at how to build Android and iOS apps using Java and JavaFX. Based upon the open source project JavaFXPorts and its commercial sibling Gluon Mobile, we will build a few real-world apps and deploy them to both emulated and physical devices.
Interested? Take a look the the schedule:
