This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
We are looking for a Java Swing guru to join our Shazzle team.
Qualifications include: � Extensive, hands-on development experience using Java Swing, including: ---Expert-level understanding of MVC development with Swing ---Expert-level understanding of Swing threading and events ---Ground-up development of multi-windowed desktop applications ---Creation of custom renderers, specifically for JTable and JTree ---Generation of reusable custom UI components ---UI performance profiling and tuning ---Understanding of recent (JDK1.5+) improvements to Swing ---Hands-on experience customizing a Java Look & Feel � Ability to translate screen design into well-architected Swing components � Experience with source code management and build tools (such as SVN, Ant) � Prior experience working with a commercial software company preferred � Prior experience working with a geographically disparate team preferred
Note that this is a senior level development position. Only individuals capable and interested in demanding and fast-paced Swing development should apply. While some mentoring of developers may be required, this is primarily a coding, non-management opportunity. Knowledge and ability is paramount, regardless of years of experience.
The person who fills this position will be heavily involved in the design and development of a cutting-edge, peer-to-peer consumer application. The right person will have an opportunity to help shape the way the general public uses the internet in years to come.
