Codeless GUI Programming
  A Declarative Syntax Layer for Desktop Graphical User Interfaces

This will be the world premiere of a game-changing advancement in the
development of desktop graphical user interfaces (GUIs).  FreeTUIT
removes the verbosity, tedium, and confusion from GUI development and
provides a unified syntax for widget layout and configuration which
supports good software design practice without getting in the way of
rapid application development.

FreeTUIT is a syntax and runtime for concisely declaring the layout and
configuration of GUI widgets (such as forms, toolbars, buttons, and
dialogs).  The freetuit interpreter drives a unified object layer which
is accessible from event callbacks.  This takes you from a blank page
to a static demo of the layout with zero setup and allows desktop
applications to be developed and deployed faster than web applications
by simply removing the HTML, CSS, XML, HTTP, Javascript, Database,
Network, and User Agent components.

Jax is next to the 2nd Ave Max stop, so you don't need to park at the
downtown icerink.
