By creating this project, you will master the concepts of using labels, text fields, password text field, grid pane, buttons, and a button event in Java programming with the JavaFX framework. If you are a beginner and this is your first course in Java GUI programming you will benefit from writing a program from a blank sheet to a fully functioning program. If you already have GUI programming experience using JavaFX, this is an opportunity to refresh your skills by going back to basics. No matter your level, you will be able to apply the skills obtained from this course in real-life programming exercises. To provide you with support outside the course, you will find a pool of additional notes and exercises that you can try at home. If you ever wanted to become better at GUI programming using JavaFX by building on your fundamental skills, this project is the right place to start!
