NetBeans Presentation at Java Users Group in Albany, NY.

I’d like to thank everyone who came out Thursday night, April 17, to hear me speak at the meeting of the Capital District Java Developer’s Network in Albany, NY, USA. This is the third or fourth time I’ve spoken at meetings of this group and I always have enjoyed it, especially when I can talk NetBeans.

The presentation was broken down into two parts (mainly so we’d have an excuse for a break in the middle to get some pizza and beer).

Part 1 : Exploring NetBeans 6.1 Features

Brief overview of NetBeans 6.0 and 6.1 to discuss the improvements and features in the latest few releases. The first part of the presentation will touch on new items such as the Sharable Libraries feature and how it can impact your projects. It will also touch on items such as MySQL integration, Axis2 support, and the improved JavaScript support.

Part 2 : Enforcing Code Quality Practices in NetBeans

The second part of the presentation will focus on using the NetBeans IDE in a code quality environment. Learn how to best combine static analysis tools (such as Checkstyle and PMD) in NetBeans for enforcing Java code quality, all while integrating with your application build process in a continuous integration environment (Hudson). Lessons learned and best practices will be demonstrated.


Many thanks to the kind folks at Apress for sending some of my books to give away, both Pro NetBeans IDE 5.5 Enterprise Edition and Pro NetBeans IDE 6 Rich Client Platform Edition.

I look forward to another talk with this group in the future! Thanks again to those who attended!
