Internet of Things Workshop for Kids

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!

Devoxx!!

 Announcing Devoxx London! Taking place on  March 26th and 27th, 2013 right before Devoxx  France on March 28th and 29th, this will be the first  edition of Devoxx UK!. The call for papers begins  on December 1st for Devoxx in London and Paris.  Speakers will be able to present at the two  conferences in the same week. Oracle committed  to fully sponsor the three Devoxx conferences in  2013 with a platinum sponsorship. Over 5,000 developers are expected to attend those conferences.

Five dancing NAO robots welcomed attendees at the keynote. Stephan Janssen offers the JUGs to replicate Devoxx4Kids workshops using his content and web infrastructure.  He recommended organizing kid events because “the workshops were really fun and such rewarding experience.” Stephan also announced the redesign of Parleys with Html 5 and GlassFish. Friendlier to speakers, they will be able to post their slides online before their talks and then sync the talk's sound track with the slides.

Nandini Ramani, VP of product development explained in her keynote address the growing role of Java from enterprise application development to cloud computing to embedded machine-to-machines systems. “Java continues to drive the applications and devices that enrich our interactivity with the world around us” she said.

The Java platform has expanded its reach with the OS X and Linux ARM support on Java SE and Java embedded with two new releases, Java SE embedded and Java Embedded Suite 7.0 middleware platformComing up next year is JDK 8, which will include Project Lambda, Project Nashorn and more. As part of that release, JavaFX will offer 3D and third-party component integration. At Devoxx, the slick and interactive schedules were designed with JavaFX. The earliest version of the Java EE 7 SDK is available for download and has WebSocket support, improved JSON support and more. 

Stephen Chin arrived on stage with his bike, ending his European NightHacking tour. Check the hacking sessions online here
