Hi Gail and Paul,

If you are the Gail and Paul Anderson which wrote The UNIX C SHELL FIELD GUIDE, I just want to thank you. It is the best piece of Unix documentation I have ever read. I bought it in the 80's, and I still use it today.

I ordered my copy of Essential JavaFX the other day when I heard about it. I can hardly wait to get it.

Hi Michael - that's awesome!

Hi John (MS software engineering student) - I had numerous discussions with other engineers and book authors about the great match with using JavaFX in the software engineering student environment. I think JavaFX is an excellent fit because it's not that hard to build applications that are interesting/fun. It is a full-fledged language with a type system (and type inference) and supports object oriented programming. You can use it for games, web services, or desktop/database applications. I'm interested in seeing how it works in your summer course.

Our son wrote the Banker game Launch Banker. His prior software experience was MatLab and little bit of HTML. That says a lot about the ease of learning and creating JavaFX applications.

Hi Gail and Paul..Welcome to JRanch

I know some java gurus suggesting novices to code some swing application which might take away the coding horror, instead it will make it interesting.
Though I dunno anything about JavaFX, I think it would be an excellent place to start even for novices.

Its good to know that we can even use it for Web Services.

By the way..are you guys teaching advance ways to use the technology...or telling us the must know things in JavaFX...I think its both..
