In the first video, you will learn about the Raspberry Pi set up and the installation of Java SE Embedded and JavaFX. In the second video below, expert Vinicius Senger explains the Raspberry Pi GPIO and protocols as well as how to use the Pi4J project, a set of libraries enabling the access of the Raspberry Pi with Java. Vinicius also gives several demonstrations using a camera, LED lights, buttons and a relay board to connect to appliances. You can download the code of his demonstrations, including Pi4J Helloworld, PiPicture, Twitter4Pi and Lcdl2C

Show the world your embedded Java + Internet of Things (IoT) application for a chance to win a trip to JavaOne 2014! 12 winners will receive a trip to JavaOne 2014, the #1 place to meet world-renowned Java experts. In addition, six students will receive laptops and certification vouchers. Team up and submit the video and code of your project by May 30, 2014.
Need just a little bit of help? We will provide experts along the way -- regular "office hours." Ask questions on the Challenge forums and check the online resources. There may be some source code and solutions you can use for your project.
At previous developer challenges, we've had developers:
- Connect a doorbell to a camera, taking a picture and sending it to a cell phone when someone rings the doorbell.
- Help blind people figure out which recycling container to use ("put it in the blue can" doesn't help!)
- Control a toy monster truck from a phone (Monster Truck As A Service!)
- Connect a heart monitor to Google glass so your doctor or trainer can see your heart rate.
This short video shows them in action:
Entries will be judged based on their implementation, innovation and usefulness:
- Quality: a well-implemented project that uses Oracle Java Embedded with computer boards, devices or IoT Technologies
- Innovation: a new and innovative way of using Java Embedded.
- Usefulness: a project that meets a business need.

SouJava is running a Raspberry Pi and Java hackathon at Campus Party, the week-long technology gathering of geeks, developers, gamers, scientists, and students in Brazil. Sponsored by Oracle Technology Network, the hackathon is designed for enthusiasts who want to create IoT projects with Raspberry Pi and Java. The objectives are for attendees to learn, practice, and innovative while creating an IoT project

The Raspberry PI and Leap Motion hands-on labs at Devoxx 2013 started with a packed room, we even had to fetch additional chairs for people standing in the back. Vinicius and Yara senger explained their super useful embedded devices panel where many sensors and boards can be accessed through easy REST URLs.
After my quick overview of the Leap Motion controller, the attendees could experiment with all available devices and get acquainted with it before starting a hack. Surprisingly though, only a couple of developers were interested to stick around for the real hack-fest that lasted the rest of the day.
We set up everything upstairs in the Devoxx open-space and started hacking with the brave few that showed up. As the day advanced though, more and more people came by and were impressed to see the work in progress. On Tuesday evening all the tables were packed with hackers testing and building cool stuff. Ten of them were able to finish their project and some even presented it on video for the Oracle Technology Network YouTube channel.
I had a great time and it's wonderful to see how easily accessible physical embedded devices speak to the imagination of so many developers.
Here's my hack that lets you control a strip of multi-colored lights that are connected to Arduino over a Raspberry Pi and are remotely controlled with the Leap Motion controller over the network.
