Sun SPOTs at JavaOne/Oracle OpenWorld

Between JavaOne and Oracle OpenWorld, and between the Sun SPOT team, other Oracle speakers, and Sun SPOT users, there will be two technical sessions, one hands-on lab, two BOFs, and a demo booth about Sun SPOT technology. So if you are coming to JavaOne or Oracle OpenWorld, come check out some of the sessions.

If you're a college student 18 or older you can attend for free! Space permitting that is - see this page for more details.
  • Session ID:     S318467 Data Springs: The Internet of Things, Wireless Sensor Networks, and Sun SPOTs
  • Session ID:     S314730 Sun SPOT Sensor Network Application Architecture Lab
  • Session ID:     S313933 Using Sun SPOTs in Educational Game Development
  • Session ID:     S313506 Making JavaFX Applications Look and Feel Real
