Readers of this blog know that I have a passion for helping rich-client Java and JavaFX become preferred technologies for new application development. You may also know that Stephen Chin has been instrumental fanatical in moving JavaFX forward, including its use with alternative languages such as Scala.
Given the excellent way that Oracle has shepherded Java and JavaFX, both Stephen Chin and I have decided to join Oracle as Java Evangelists effective 02-Apr-2012. This will enable us to devote full attention to moving Java/JavaFX forward, teaming up with the Engineers and Evangelists at Oracle. I look forward to increased interaction with the Java/JavaFX community in this new role!
