In the first video, you will learn about the Raspberry Pi set up and the installation of Java SE Embedded and JavaFX. In the second video below, expert Vinicius Senger explains the Raspberry Pi GPIO and protocols as well as how to use the Pi4J project, a set of libraries enabling the access of the Raspberry Pi with Java. Vinicius also gives several demonstrations using a camera, LED lights, buttons and a relay board to connect to appliances. You can download the code of his demonstrations, including Pi4J Helloworld, PiPicture, Twitter4Pi and Lcdl2C

Show the world your embedded Java + Internet of Things (IoT) application for a chance to win a trip to JavaOne 2014! 12 winners will receive a trip to JavaOne 2014, the #1 place to meet world-renowned Java experts. In addition, six students will receive laptops and certification vouchers. Team up and submit the video and code of your project by May 30, 2014.
Need just a little bit of help? We will provide experts along the way -- regular "office hours." Ask questions on the Challenge forums and check the online resources. There may be some source code and solutions you can use for your project.
At previous developer challenges, we've had developers:
- Connect a doorbell to a camera, taking a picture and sending it to a cell phone when someone rings the doorbell.
- Help blind people figure out which recycling container to use ("put it in the blue can" doesn't help!)
- Control a toy monster truck from a phone (Monster Truck As A Service!)
- Connect a heart monitor to Google glass so your doctor or trainer can see your heart rate.
This short video shows them in action:
Entries will be judged based on their implementation, innovation and usefulness:
- Quality: a well-implemented project that uses Oracle Java Embedded with computer boards, devices or IoT Technologies
- Innovation: a new and innovative way of using Java Embedded.
- Usefulness: a project that meets a business need.

The biggest Java conference in Europe is taking place in Antwerp, Belgium from November 11 to 15, 2013. The conference is designed by developers for developers and attracts renowned international speakers.
The review committee looks for passionate speakers who are technically knowledgeable and not afraid to speak in front of a full room of Devoxxians.
The speakers can increase CFP acceptance rate by submitting one or more talks for Tools in Action, Quickie, BOF, University session, Conference and Hands On Labs sessions.

Java Magazine reaches more than 150,000 subscribers and is loaded with technical articles, community news, and success stories from an array of businesses. The magazine's success is the result of the expert writers who write about technologies that they have first hand experience with.
Pick a topic you are most familiar with and send as many code challenges as you want. The challenge can be about any Java technology, whether it is Java SE, Java EE, Java ME, or Java Embedded.
Submit a Fix This challenge today! Just follow these simple steps:
1. State the problem, including a short summary of the tool/technique, in about 75 words.
2. Send us the code snippet, with a short set-up so readers know what they are looking at (such as, "Consider the following piece of code to have database access within a Servlet.")
3. Provide four multiple-choice answers to the question, "What's the fix?"
4. Give us the answer, along with a brief explanation of why.
5. Tell us who you are (name, occupation, etc.)
6. Email the above to JAVAMAG_US at ORACLE.COM with "Fix This Submission" in the title.

The title of the keynote was "The Programmer" and was all about the act of programming, insights into who programmers are and tips to get better at it. Kevlin Henney received applause and cheers when he stated: "We didn't get into programming because we wanted to deliver business value. That's what we say during interviews." His knowledgeable presentation backed up with research was spot on and it's worth any developer's time to watch the replay on Parleys.
Oh, and do "mind the gap" between the train and platform as we are admonished nonstop by the station minders. As well, Mind the Geek, the clever tagline of the conference. But, if I don't mind the geek, what do I risk? Broken code, twisted error messages, suffering a memory leak or worse, I'm sure. Let us all mind our inner geeks, then?
With Devoxx UK, the number of Devoxxians will reach 5,500 across Europe this year. The hands-on labs, talks, quickies, birds-of-a-feather and bash run from 9:30am to 10:00pm in the spacious business design center with its mezzanine. 75 speakers talked in 50 sessions in 7 tracks about cloud, Java SE, methodologies, Java EE, web & big data, new languages on the JVM, and future Devoxx.
As if you didn't know, the French have already got a Holy Grail, and so refused to assist King Arthur and his Kiniggits in their quest. That was then, now the Brits borrowed the Grail from the French for the two-day conference and will return it for the beginning of Devoxx France starting tomorrow.
