NetBeans Education Community

Welcome to the home of the NetBeans Education Community (NEC). The main goal of the NEC is to bring together people teaching software-related courses, at educational institutions of any kind (schools, colleges, universities, etc), and using NetBeans IDE to do so.

The specific aims of this community are as follows:

  • to create and share open source learning materials based on NetBeans IDE
  • to provide enhanced learning experiences by developing NetBeans plugins specialized for teaching
  • to get the academic community more closely involved in the NetBeans community
