Java will be on display at SXSW, empowering developers and robots alike. See how Java is uniquely suited to support the Internet of Things at these presentations:
On Sunday, March 9th, at 3pm Angela Caidedo, Java Technology Evangelist, will show the Java Duchess Segway in "Beyond Beauty: JavaFX, Parallax, Touch Raspberry Pi, Gyroscopes, and Much More." She* is a Java SE Embedded-powered, self-balancing robot built using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3. (*Ambiguous pronoun reference intentional.)
On Monday, March 10, Nandini Ramani, VP of Java Development, will show how "Java Empowers the Internet of Things" at 3pm and how to "Navigate the Internet of Things" at 5pm.
You can also see Java in Action at the Oracle Discovery Lounge at the Waller Creek Boathouse. There will be demos, food, drink and cool air! Play a Java-powered, Twitter-enabled smart darts game. Join us for a (invitation only) reception Friday night. You can meet and get your picture taken with some of the crew of Oracle Team USA who won the America’s Cup. Oracle Discovery Lounge will be open 11am-7pm Saturday March 8 to Monday March 10.
