Join us at the Bay Area Maker Faire May 17 & 18 at the San Mateo Event Center.
The Maker Faire bills itself as "a family-friend festival of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement." Sounds like a place Java should be! Oracle is sponsoring a booth with lots of interactive activities for Makers of all ages. There will be Java Embedded experts there to answer your questions. You'll also be able to get hand-on with the Internet of Things! Here are some of the fun activities:
IoT Java Panel
Learn how you can use different boards running Java SE Embedded or Java ME Embedded to:

Eight workstations with a Raspberry Pi. Each Raspberry Pi has a dual sensor board that can detect proximity and luminosity. You can send a tweet or a text message to create a series of “if-this-then-that” actions. You can combine actions to:
Minecraft Java IoT Cube 4D
We'll show you how you can use Java to modify Minecraft and interact with the game in new ways.
If you are in the SF Bay Area, don't miss the Maker Faire for you and your kids.
