Started CSS redesign HTML5 basic of www.xenonique.co.uk - it's a great start for 8 hours rework through Photoshop CS6, Bootstrap learn, CSS Relearning and catch up with many things web related. I might even throw in some AngularJS there once other high priority stuff is done. One thing that still amazes me is the battle between the different web browsers. In 2013. Come on Browser vendors: Unite please.

Next Week, I will be at Devoxx 2012, in Antwerp, Belgium from Monday 12th until Friday 16th, December. I shall, therefore, be out-of-office. I am looking forward to meeting you all in person, if you can make it, at Europe's premier Java IT technology conference. Sadly, the conference has already sold out weeks ago

Make your voice count on where JavaFX for mobile, tablet and embedded devices is going http://fxexperience.com/2012/12/javafx-for-tablets-mobile/
Please complete the survey!

Remember JavaFX 2 is a standalone library of Oracle's Java JRE 7

Java fx is ok for the desktop, not too sure it will be viable on tablet and embedded devices. The automatic garbage collector is a hindrance to the level of. fluidity expected in today's tablet.
