NetBeans Community News with Geertjan and Tinu April 17, 2012,
Volume 170, Issue 3
In the 43 minutes of NetBeans Podcast #60 listeners will hear Tinu and Geertjan discuss not only the latest news on NetBeans 7.1 but also Joel Murach, author of Murach's Java Programming, now in its fourth edition, who explains his preference for NetBeans IDE as a tool for teaching developers how to create programs in Java. In contrast to most other texts on Java programming, Murach opts for the IDE rather than the CLI because NetBeans itself, he feels, is more intuitive for beginning programmers to use. Guest Martin Janicek also appears to discuss his work on Groovy support in NetBeans IDE.
