I’m writting this on a laptop with a 3G modem. I’m actually amazed by the speed. I had to get some files from an FTP server. The speed was about 150 Kilobytes / second. I sometimes even have trouble getting that with my adsl account. I had read about the theoretical speeds but had never seen it in action.Â Still have to check how fast it goes if I use my iphone as wireless router, should get the same speed IMHO. Anybody tried it yet?
Devoxx Thank you Stephan Janssen
I would just like to say thank you to Stephan Janssen. The first talks of Devoxx (Javapolis) are already online. I bought a ticket this year, but because of the death of a relative I really didn’t feel like going. It’s nice to be able to still watch some sessions. Ok, It’s not the same as being there, but I still get the information I would get if I had attended. Keep up the good work.
@Stephan If you read this, any idea when we will be able to see a glimpse of the JavaFX and Silverlight version. I’m really curious what the results will be.
I myself actually don’t believe in JavaFX. I have to admit they have the strength of Java but they still lack a lot of things. One of the reasons I’m so interested in Flex is the fact they already have lot of standard components. Strong set of graphs,calendar,datagrid,… in the beginning Silverlight was also missing these features and almost nobody wanted to use it. With Flex you are even starting to see community efforts for making custom widgets. I for one have already used the CustomDataGrid where you have a builtin search functionality. You just give the grid a couple of 100 lines and you can make the searchable,customizable columns,… Don’t you just love the widget/component based frameworks 🙂
