A Seesaw Tutorial

December 7th, 2011

It was recently pointed out to me that Seesaw’s “amazing and wonderful”, but not still not that friendly for developers with no background in Java or Swing. By coincidence, I was scheduled to give a talk on Seesaw at Ann Arbor’s CraftsmanGuild, so I took the opportunity to try to improve the situation.

I’m usually not a fan of slides, so I did the talk completely in the REPL. The result was, I think, a nice introduction that assumes no Java or Swing knowledge and shows off some of Seesaw’s cool high-level features.

You might want to view it in its native habitat since this dumb fixed-width layout will hide some of the text. Also, depending on your fonts, my lovingly crafted screenshots might look like crap. Sorry about that.

In any case, here it is. Feedback welcome and encouraged.

    Fantastic tutorial, Dave. I thought it was really an elegant and gentle introduction to seesaw. I have a small java swing app that is in dire need of a cleanup that I may port over to seesaw just to give it a try. Thanks for putting this together.
