In this interview, Java Evangelist Angela Caicedo demonstrates her new jacket designed with wearable technologies. She can listen music from her favorite playlists, monitor her heart beat, and get her emails. All of it powered by a Raspberry Pi.
"We are always creating new IoT applications and encouraging others to improve them. Lhings is the networking tool that let us make it very easy. This time we wanted to make something we use in our everyday lives which is traditionally non-technical, as is a table, to be connected to the Internet and then provide new services that could be useful in some applications" explains José Pereda, who is part of the Lhings team. Based in Spain, the team won aJavaOne trip during IoT Developer Challenge.
"We wanted to show that IoT is useful in real scenarios and it's accessible to anyone. Likewise, we would like to encourage developers to reproduce and improve it!" further explains José. You will get a chance to meet them at JavaOne.
User group leaders from around the world meet once a year at JavaOne. Each year, they organize the Forum meeting the Sunday before JavaOne. Speakers and topics are vetted by community. Anyone attending JavaOne whether they belong to a user group or not are invited to those sessions. Make sure you arrive on time for the Forum on Sunday. It starts at 8:00am at Moscone West.
Among the topics this year are NetBeans community and tools, Java EE and Glassfish update, lightning talks about productivity, Java tools for Maven and Java EE, free Java tools and how to teach Java. And you don't want to miss James Gosling. He will present his latest work on the Raspberry Pi, Robots and Small Devices.

The last two Hangouts with our Coach Vinicius Senger are taking place tomorrow Thursday:
A Hangout in Portuguese at 4:00pm California time or 8:00pm Brazilian Time
A Hangout in English at 6:00pm California time, 9:00pm Eastern time, 10:00pm in Brazil. The same session will happen on Friday at 9:00am in Singapore, 10:00am in Tokyo Japan, 8:00am in Jakarta Indonesia
Vinicius will present his lab, tools, CNC machine and many devices that he created like robots, wifi camera, panels, home automation and more! Join us and learn about the many possibilities to use Java Embedded, different types of single-board computers and your creativity.
Things are heating up with less than 10 days left to submit a project video and the code for IoT Developer Challenge by the May 30 deadline. Don't miss this chance to win a trip to JavaOne for up to three members of your team! Use the video to show how the project works.
There is still time to get your questions answered on the forums or by filling out the coaching form. We are monitoring both and your questions will be answered promptly.
Project complexity is less important than completeness of concept. Mostly your project should work without requiring additional development. In the implementation, we look at whether you use Oracle Java Embedded - and you may use other languages or frameworks, of course. Real world implementation, a.k.a 'Utility of Entry', is only 25% of the judging criteria. Visit the the Challenge website for more details.
The judges will score the Entries based on the following criteria:
There are two weeks left to enter the IoT Developer Challenge! This is your chance to win one of 12 JavaOne trips. Submit a project video and the code of an Java Embedded application using any boards, devices, IoT technology like sensors, lights, camera, and more. The final deadline is May 30.
Want to learn everything there is to know about the Raspberry Pi? These three videos walk you through the software setup and connections to sensors and other IoT technologies. With this free 40 minute training, developers of any background can build a project with the Raspberry Pi and Java. If you are looking for more sensors, cameras and other gadgets to create a breakthrough application, just visit newark.com or adafruit.com, and they will send you the equipment you need in couple of days.
Once you have that cool project running, submit a video of how it works and the code to the IoT Developer Challenge. This is your chance to win a trip to JavaOne 2014, the premier Java conference, where you can meet the most seasoned and innovative Java developers in the world.
There is no time to waste! Only 15 days are left before the Challenge deadline on May 30
Globalcode Founder Vinicius Senger will demonstrate how to build a simple application using a Raspberry Pi. This hangout session will be at 8:00 am in Sao Paulo, Brazil; 6pm in Jakarta, Indonesia; 11:00am GMT; 4:30pm in Chennai, India; 8:00pm in Tokyo Japan; 3:00pm in Moscow, Russia
The Challenge deadline is coming up fast! To enter the IoT Developer Challenge, submit a video and the code of a project by May 30. The requirement is to use Java Embedded with boards, devices or IoT technologies.
Don't miss this chance to win a trip to JavaOne 2014 for you and 2 members of your team. Three teams will win! This is great opportunity for folks to gain exposure and recognition.

Java ME is used on the Gemalto concept board, Keil Board, Qualcomm and Raspberry Pi boards. During this IoT Developer Challenge webinar, Globalcode Founder Vinicius Senger presents us with resources and advice to build a project with Java ME. You can start a project today with 2 other teammates and submit it to the IoT Developer Challenge. The three of you may win a trip to JavaOne 2014!
Invited during the webinar was Java ME Product Manager Terrence Barr. He described the state of today's embedded market beyond phones and tablets, the advantages of Java ME over C or assembly development, products using Java ME, the new features of Java ME 8 and tips and tricks for developers. If you are looking to start with Java ME 8, check out his blog about getting started with samples and demo code.
Want to learn about building applications on small devices? Come to this webinar and learn about Java ME Embedded. Java ME Product Manager Terrence Barr and Globalcode Founder Vinicius Senger will present Java ME Embedded tips and tricks and talk about the new Java ME Embedded 8 release that just came out this week.
Come with questions about Java Embedded and the project you are planning to submit for IoT Developer Challenge. Terrence and Vinicius will be available to answer your questions.
Registering for this webinar will give you a chance to win a Raspberry Pi kit. Join us for this live training on Monday May 5 at 6:00pm - 8:00pm UTC; 3:00pm - 5:00pm Sao Paulo, Brazil; 2:00pm - 4:00pm EST; 11:00am - 1:00pm PST
