Building Meaningful Applications in SWT for Beginners

SWT is a cross platform UI toolkit written in Java and is the backbone of the Eclipse platform. This tutorial will offer beginners to SWT a chance to use their Java skills in order to build a meaningful SWT application.

The tutorial will be run by two full-time SWT contributors and will offer:

  • An introduction to the philosophical grounding and principles of SWT
  • A comprehensive lesson on SWT widgets, and layouts
  • More advanced UI concepts such as drag n drop, custom drawing, and event handling
  • Emphasis on SWT’s cross-platform capabilities (OS X, Windows, Linux)
  • Multiple hands-on opportunities ranging from simple snippets to writing your own text editor, game, or todo app. Bring your Mac/Windows/Linux laptop!
