Objects-First Java with BlueJ

My talk at the PinoyJUG session yesterday was about teaching Java the objects-first way. I expected an audience of mostly Java instructors and looked forward to sharing what I'd learned for my first year of teaching. However, almost all the attendees were professionals taking up Java. S'okay; made do. Dominique and Eric were there—yay!

I had problems with my resolution in the beginning. Fortunately, Dominique brought his laptop. I transferred the PDF there and went through the slides. I couldn't demonstrate BlueJ on his computer, though. I thought about booting to Windows XP, but apparently I'd lost that part of my GRUB config, and my computer was set up to quickly boot into Linux. However, disabling the resolution compensation before X started resulted in a nice 800x600 projected screen.

I still talk too fast. This time, though, my slides were neatly organized. Must remember to put dramatic pauses into the script...
