While the rest of the GlassFish team is laser focused on the upcoming releases I’ve found some time to max out my web and CSS skills (not even sure they qualify as “skills”) trying to improve the glassfish.org homepage wrt to graphics, space, dead links, obsolete content, … It’s not perfect but I hope it’s seen as an improvement.
As part of these small updates I also did a refresh of several pages (some with content from the GlassFish launch in 2006!), including the “Getting Started” page which now has a set of six short introductory videos. They cover installation, the update center, developer features, web and CLI admin, using IDEs as well as the RESTful admin. All were actually extracted from the Virtual Conference session on GlassFish v3 (which you can listen to in Episode #50 of the GlassFish Podcast). Links to the videos are here.
