In this session Joshua Marinacci of the JavaFX team will cover the traditional split of software development between designer and developer, and then show how new visual tools and languages are shifting this divide. This session will cover not only JavaFX but new designer/developer approaches taken by other software communities and their influence on JavaFX. Knowledge of Java is not required for this session. A general understanding of web technologies and software development is helpful.
