Oracle Massive Open Online Course: Develop Java Embedded Applications Using a Raspberry Pi

Start Date: Friday , May 30th, 2014 3:00 pm GMT

Based on the overwhelming response for the Java Embedded MOOCwe are offering the course again!

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.

Java Embedded leverages your experience with Java to open the world of the Internet of Things by providing direct access to electronic sensors and mechanical devices.

Presented by: Tom McGinn, Angela Caicedo, Jim Weaver, Simon Ritter
