Talking about NetBeans at OracleCodeOne 2019
1 min read
I am involved in 3 NetBeans talks at Oracle CodeOne 2019 (and there are several other NetBeans talks also taking place).
Monday 2.30pm – Why You Should Be Coding with the NetBeans IDE [BOF1321]. This is a talk with my colleague Ethan Price from IDRsolutions. We will be showing you all the features in NetBeans that make it an excellent tool for writing code in not just Java but many other languages. We spend a lot of time using NetBeans for our development work and you can find out why in this talk.
Monday 6.00pmHacking the NetBeans IDE [BOF1338] sounds more scary but I will be starting from the beginning and showing you how to access, download and experiment with the NetBeans source code. If you are also interested in learning more about Git, and working with any big Enterprise Java codebase this is an excellent talk to attend.
Wednesday 6.00pmApache NetBeans: Its Status and Future [DEV2506] will feature myself, Ethan and Geertjan Wielenga from Oracle talking more about the history, changes and developments happening in NetBeans. We would love to hear what you think.
I am really excited to be speaking this year. NetBeans has always been my goto tool for writing code (and I will hope to show you why in my talks). With the move to being part of the Apache project, development has really accelerated and there is much more opportunity to be involved and be a part of the discussion.
If you have not used NetBeans before, or you used it some years ago this is a really opportunity to come along and find out what you are missing!
Finally, we usually have a meet-up for anyone who wants to chat about NetBeans at the Thirsty Bear on the Saturday night before the conference (Saturday 14th September). Add a comment or contact me on twitter (@markee174) if you would like more details…
