This time, we fly up to Mars with Vincenzo Palazzo and the Material UI Swing.
Vincenzo is the maintainer of this library, a custom theme for Swing which is bringing a material look-n-feel to the Swing UI toolkit. While this might sound boring at first, Material UI Swing is currently used on JMars (Java Mission-planning and Analysis for Remote Sensing) 🪐 and sponsored by the Arizona State University.
In this episode Vincenzo will tell us the challenges of having to deal with Swing, and what it means to have a University sponsoring your open-source project.
