2500 developers attended 4th Devoxx France this year, an increase of over a thousand attendees from last year. The organizers announced a new member of the Devoxx family: Devoxx Morocco, a conference that will take place in Casablanca during the third week of November.
In this 20th year of Java, the theme of Devoxx France 2015 was about innovations in technology over the next 20 years. In his keynote, Java architect Brian Goetz described a development approach that keeps up with the technical needs of developers. Java 9 will deliver a modular platform tuned to hardware requirements. CEO Quentin Adam of Clever Cloud considers that engineering roles are entering an age of specialization. Dan Allen, an open source advocate, author, and world renowned speaker, discussed the responsibility of developers to preserve digital information for future generations. CCO Stephan Tual discussed Ehereum, an open source and decentralized platform allowing the creation of P2P businesses with new infrastructure, communication and privacy.
Rodolphe Gelin, research director of Aldebaran, explains that Romeo, a new line of humanoid robots will become a companion capable of understanding emotions and anticipate situations in the every day life. “Robots are an additional platform for development” he commented. Pierre Yves Oudeyer, research director at INRA, discussed cutting-edge artificial intelligence research, in which robots are programmed to be curious and learn by experimenting like children. They become aware of themselves and their environment. They can even develop their own language. The humanoid robot Poppy is an open source robot for laboratories and research centers to collaborate on the artificial intelligence project. Eric Filiol, the head of ESIEA research lab called on developers’ civic responsibility to educate politicians who are passing laws about internet, and privacy without understanding technology. He made the room laugh when he suggested that “after Devoxx4Kids, we really need a Devoxx4politicians.”
All the keynote speakers agreed that no one can predict the disruptive technologies in the next 20 years like no one could have predicted the internet and its ubiquity in our lives today. Again this year was Seed Networking, where developers, startups and venture capitalists discuss business opportunities. New this year was the Café Philo to discuss about the digital world and the future of society. Devoxx4kids took place last Saturday. 50 kids were learning Java using Scratch and Lego Mindstorms.

“Being able to debug and profile robots out at sea is a truly life-altering experience,” Gosling explains. He uses a set of tools—consisting of editors, debuggers, and profilers—that are part of the NetBeans IDE. At the JavaOne 2014 NetBeans Community Day, he will present the session “James Gosling, Robots, the Raspberry Pi, and Small Devices” [UGF8907] on Sunday, September 28. He will also present “Debugging and Profiling Robots with James Gosling” [CON6699] on Wednesday, October 1. Geertjan Wielenga, Mark Heckler, José Pereda, Johannes Weigend, Shai Almog and Jens Deters will join him to discuss those two topics.
Join him as he closes out the JavaOne Community keynote with a fun, historical perspective of the genesis of Java, and a T-shirt toss! The Community Keynote will be held in the Marriott Marquis, Salon 7/8/9, on Thursday, October 2, 2014

Here's the opening paragraph from the new OTN article "A Perfect Match: Java and the Internet of Things:"
"The recent MakerCon Conference, hosted by Oracle, along with the 2014 Maker Faire, made it clear that the Maker Movement—a vital source of hardware innovation—is catching fire and opening up rich possibilities for Java developers. The match between the Maker Movement's ingenious intelligent devices and embedded software technology is central to the development of the connected world, the Internet of Things (IoT), and machine-to-machine (M2M) technology. As embedded devices get cheaper, more powerful, and more connected, and as the Internet of Things grows, Java developers are receiving strong support from Oracle as they face radical new challenges and opportunities. Java is best equipped to serve as a unified standardized platform for the Internet of Things. To that end, a major effort to unify the Java platform is underway—specifically, Java ME with Java SE—to shrink Java SE into the embedded space and smaller devices."
