NetBeans worldTour - Meet the Only IDE You Need

Join us again when we come to you with demos of upcoming features, IDE tips & tricks, and special guests such as James Gosling.

After the wildly popular series of NetBeans events between NetBeans Software Day San Francisco in, and 2grsdt7, the NetBeans team will once again hit the road for a worldTour in.

What To Expect...

The NetBeans worldTour is a FREE and exciting learning opportunity. See first-hand how NetBeans IDE can help you become more productive with its unmatched out-of-the-box experience. Members of the NetBeans team will demonstrate what's new in the IDE and the Platform. Have a look at the agenda!

This is a great opportunity for community members to connect with each other face-to-face, interact with the NetBeans team, and meet Java luminaries like James Gosling. In all cases where possible, the local NetBeans Day will proceed a Sun Tech Day. This way you will not only learn the latest from the NetBeans community, but will have an opportunity to see related sessions from Sun Microsystems.

Have Your Own NetBeans Day in a Box

Invite your friends over, grab some popcorn, and have a tech day right in your living room: NetBeans Day in a Box includes original demo scripts and slides from NetBeans Days. And even more importantly, it's a wiki, this means, you can suggest your own new topics by adding them to the page!
