Develop Java Embedded Applications Using a Raspberry Pi for free (well almost)

Have you wondered what the future of embedded devices looks like?
Have you ever wanted to create your own weather station or design a device to control the lights in your home automatically?

All of these questions will be answered in this practical hands-on course. This course introduces Java developers to the world of embedded devices and the Internet of Things (IoT). Embedded controllers are already a part of our lives. Meters read electric and water usage and send the readings to a central office. Electronic thermostats turn on the heat and air conditioning as required.

This course is free (besides the necessary hardware, which should cost bout $150).

Enroll here!

Happy Coding,

Oracle Teams with China UnionPay to Promote Secure Banking in China

Oracle and China UnionPay will be working together to increase awareness and use of the Java Card platform in the Chinese financial market. UnionPay is a bankcard association established under the approval of the State Council and the People’s Bank of China (PBOC). UnionPay has become a central and pivotal part of China’s bankcard industry, and plays an essential role in industry development.

The collaboration between Oracle and China UnionPay will provide current Java Card licensees and new prospects with the confidence to develop and utilize Java Card–based applications. Oracle will help develop and test the Java Card platform for use in the Chinese banking system, while Oracle and China UnionPay will offer technical support and service on Java Card to help the effective use of the Java Card platform depending on the requirements of Chinese enterprises and banks.

The Java Card Platform provides an open, interoperable environment enabling the development and deployment of portable trusted identity services to individuals and personal devices, such as SIMs and Smart Cards. To date, over 12 billion Java Card units have been shipped.

Dec 5 Webcast: IoT-Driving new services from connected device data

The growth of the Internet of Things opens up all types of service driven opportunities, delivering increased efficiencies, better customer value and improved quality of life. Realizing the full potential of the Internet of Things requires that we change how we view and build devices which provide the core foundation of services: rapidly transforming data to information to value.  From home to industry to public sector, the focus is on how devices can grow in intelligence, interoperability with other devices, systems and services, and drive timely decisions, while delivering real business return for all.

Please be sure to check out this interesting Oracle webcast with partner Freescale as they discuss how all of the players in the IoT and M2M value chain can drive value from the new wave of data coming from intelligent connected devices by leveraging Java.

The webcast will be held on Thursday Dec 5 at 10am PST/1pm EST and includes a live q&a session.

Oracle Open World,2013 IoT Session: Internet of Things Platform: An In-Depth Look at the Role of Oracle Fusion Middleware

IoT, as described before, is a complex value chain that involves multiple stakeholders ranging from semiconductor manufacturers, sensors and gateway manufacturers, network providers, software vendors system integrators and many more. An independent research study by Beecham Research emphasizes the need for coordination across partners in this value chain to be a topmost priority in the IoT platform.

Here's another interesting session at Oracle Open World,2013 that attempts to provide insight into the role of Oracle Fusion Middleware in the IoT platform. Find out how Oracle's Java Embedded Technologies with Oracle Fusion Middleware can provide a standardized platform to develop and deploy applications across multiple devices and data centers. Application scenarios where solutions have been successfully deployed will also be presented. Infotech, a location intelligence company based in Turkey, uses this platform to offer a range of location based services. The CEO of Infotech explains how Oracle Fusion Middleware was leveraged for its solutions.

Session Details are as follows - 

Internet of Things Platform: An In-Depth Look at the Role of Oracle Fusion Middleware
Date: Monday, Sept 23, 2013
Time: 10:45PM - 11:45PM
Location: Marriott Marquis - Foothill G

Speakers: Ali Peker - CEO, INFOTECH Bilisim ve Iletisim Teknolojileri A.S | Ed Zou - VP, Product Management, Fusion Middleware, Oracle | Shivanshu Upadhyay - Solution Architecture Director, Oracle

Session Abstract: Only Oracle delivers a comprehensive platform for the entire machine-to-machine (M2M) architecture. The key to gaining real business value from M2M services or, more broadly, the Internet of Things is effective communication among all elements of the architecture. With an integrated, end-to-end platform, it is possible to deploy applications faster, process and analyze data at lightning speeds, and act on events as quickly as they occur. This presentation looks at the Oracle device-to-data-center platform and how Oracle Fusion Middleware, the leading business innovation platform for the enterprise and the cloud, enables partners to create and run agile, intelligent M2M applications.
