Today is the official launch day of JavaFX 1.0 and we, as Sun Campus ambassadors to KTH, had a short presentation about JavaFX last night at opening ceremony of “Mobile Cup” in Stockholm. Mobile Cup is the world’s largest mobile competition with lots of competitors and big sponsors. People were talking about Adobe’s Flash and Microsoft’s Silverlight technologies to compare with JavaFX. It was really nice to got lots of positive feedbacks from competitors and other guests after the event.
The strange thing was that it was nearly midnight (11.pm)and it was actually a night club and people were offered free beers while we were talking about the great features of JavaFX, but still lots of people were really interested in the topic. That was really nice. You can find our presentation slides below:

After a very successful organization, brilliant participants and perfect games Swedish Game Award finally finished. Congratulations to organizers, students and sponsors. As Sun Microsystems, we were there and in our small stand, we gave away free t-shirts, CDs/DVDs, pens and much more. Also we showed the OpenSolaris 2008.05 from live CD and people really liked it.
After a very long day, we had a lovely dinner at the top of the Kultur Huset in the heart of Stockholm city and mingled around. As far as we observed from the game developers, they are quite familiar with Sun’s products and they like using them.
We hope to see more and more projects for next years competition. See you next year !!!!
