PrimeFaces, a popular JavaServer Faces (JSF) UI framework, can be used to quickly develop sophisticated applications for the enterprise or for standard websites. The OTN tech article PrimeFaces in the Enterprise focuses on how to efficiently build data-driven applications for the enterprise. Developer Josh Juneau builds an enterprise application, making use of PrimeFaces to create a user-friendly, robust experience. He walks you through developing forms to input and update customer, job, and pool information for the fictional AcmePools company. See how PrimeFaces can be included in JSF applications to significantly increase the options available for your applications.

Devoxx4Kids is offering workshops for kids 6th grade and older to learn the basics of the Internet of Things in Mountain View, California on Sunday, May 4th. Register your child now for the morning or afternoon session!
These workshops will cover the basic concepts applied for interfacing the real world to the digital world, like sensors and controllers, circuits, voltage, current, analog and digital signals. Kids will learn via hands-on activities using the Arduino Uno, an open-source micro-controller. It can control simple components like switches, LEDs, and light sensors. Arduino kits will be provided for hands-on experience in a shared setting.
The Internet of Things is growing each day. Objects from everyday life, like water heaters, energy meters, and weather stations are now connecting to each other and people, computers and the Internet. Now is the time for your child to learn about this exciting area!
Internet of Things for Kids
Hackerdojo, Mountain View, CA
Price: $10.00/per person
REGISTRATION REQUIRED, no on-site registration.
Note: Please download and install the software as described prior to the workshop.
Devoxx4Kids is focused on educating parents to teach their kids and show that it is possible to be creative with computers. The goal is to introduce parents and their kids to programming, robotics and engineering in a fun way. This is achieved by organizing sessions where attendees can develop computer games, program robots and also have an introduction to electronics.

If you missed the IoT training session on Monday, we were at the Oracle Santa Clara campus diving into the world of computer boards. Embedded Expert Vinicius Senger talked to Principal Member of the Technical Staff, Gary Collins, and Java Architect Hinkmond Wong about the Raspberry Pi and other computer boards, IoT technologies and Java Embedded.
Hinkmond sees Java well suited for Internet of Things because Java can handle complex programming with event processing, smart devices, cloud, and business intelligence. Hinkmond gave a tour of what was on his desk. He showed us Freescale i.MX6, Raspberry Pi, Hex bug, motion detector sensor, LCD screen, and a relay board. In his blog, he develops innovative embedded projects such as a Nest-like smart sensor to inspire developers to create their startups with Java.
