Java and the Board Buffet

April 9, 2014 By: Yolande Poirier

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.
