The NetBeans Open Source Project creates the NetBeans IDE and the NetBeans Platform. The IDE is a cross-platform, multi-language development tool currently supporting development in Java, C and C++, with support for other languages in the works. The Platform is a "generic large desktop application" which handles much of the grunt-work required by any application - meaning that you get to concentrate your time and effort on the logic that is important to your application. A large and growing number of companies and individuals have now built applications based on NetBeans, and state that it has saved them years of development time.

Sun Microsystems SunONE Studio (formerly Forte for Java) and Compuware's OptimalJ, among others, are distributions of the NetBeans IDE. Also speaking is William Will, from Xemus Software, LLC, which has started an open source music composition tools project built on NetBeans.

In this session, you can learn about the architechture and design of NetBeans, meet some of the developers who created it, learn the basics of writing NetBeans plug-in modules, and hear the experiences of people who have built applications using the NetBeans Platform.
