MWC2010-party-guide.png Talking about Mobile World Congress parties: Check out this cool app by Ofir Leitner. It’s a Java ME app, using LWUIT and the HTMLComponent. Runs beautifully on my Sony Ericsson phone.

Ofir built it over the weekend, but it comes complete with touch-screen support, animations, physics-supported scrolling, transitions, animations, and mapping capabilities. Includes all the free parties. Nice job!

JavaFX-VANOC.pngUPDATE:

  • Feb 22: Check out this video about the design and technology behind the Vancouver Winter Olympics website

The Vancouver Winter Olympics start tomorrow (Feb 12, 2010) and JavaFX is the official rich client technology of the 2010 Winter Games.

The “Medal Wheel”, already available on the site, is a JavaFX application that allows you to explore medal results in a unique and very visual way, from the Vancouver Winter Olympics all the way back to Chamonix 1924.

Another JavaFX-based widget, the “Results Ticker”, which allows sports fans to follow real-time medal results, will be available at the start of the event tomorrow.

Check out the application (very cool!) and read more out it in the press release.

Cheers,

— Terrence
