In this video, Java Champion and Devoxx organizer Antonio Goncalves gives an overview of Devoxx France. The conference is taking place this week from April 16 to 20 in Paris, France.
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.
The purpose of the group is to provide content to developers who cannot attend JUG meetings. It will never replace the experience of a face-to-face meetup. Simon is looking for ideas to best help existing JUGs.
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.

When building solutions for the Internet of Things, you must ensure that devices, hubs and data centers connect effectively, that systems integrate easily, and that applications and analytics work together seamlessly. Join Oracle for this business-focused Online Forum with our partners and customers on Thursday, April 24 to learn how you can manage the complexity of the Internet of Things, and take advantage of business opportunities you haven’t yet imagined.
A global network of billions of devices sharing data is opening up unprecedented business opportunities. How well positioned is your company to take advantage of this seismic shift?
"I went to Google to figure out what to work on next, and it started finishing my queries for me, so I thought, maybe you can do the same thing with code!" explained Imperial Grand Chief TopGuy Mark Dlohnier. "I went to take out my trash," said Engineer Architect BuilderGuy Brian Ztoeg, "and thought…nevermind." Director John Illeraccec-Noilluj expects adding functionality to this new tool in later releases, such as code templates, coding tips, and refactoring tools. Perhaps even deploying to an app server with one click! Wisely, WetclipserJ only supports Java. Multi-language support just doesn't make sense in a world where developers rarely use more than one language. "I say, pick the best and you stick with it!" exclaimed Illeraccec-Noilluj.
"We like to call this new type of tool an I-D-E, but it may take a while for that acronym to catch on." Redienhcsztu explained.
