Java Community Lead Stephen Chin and Freelancer Sebastian Daschner are touring Java User Groups in Japan. You can watch them live at NightHacking.
Stephen walks you through how to build your own retro handheld console that is powered by Java, runs on a Raspberry Pi, and is printed on a 3D printer. Some of the topics he covers along the journey include: hacking Java on the Raspberry Pi , rigging input devices with Pi4J, insane performance tuning on the JVM , why your boss needs to buy you a 3D printer! And, of course, your retro gaming mettle will be put to the test, so dust off your old 8 and 16 bit consoles! This presentation is about the most fun you can have while still legitimately calling this conference “work.”
Sebastian gives an introduction of RESTful web services with Hypermedia as the engine of application state, what the benefits and costs of using this approach are and show different approaches how to realize such REST services with JavaEE 7 and JAX-RS. Most of the time will be spent demonstrating different implementations (plain JavaEE 7, existing libraries, etc.) with live coding. The session is held in English.
