Jfokus: Java and Java Embedded

Jfokus

Next week is Jfokus Java Developer Conference in Stockholm, Sweden.  Jfokus is the largest annual conference for everyone who works with Java in the area, with over 2000 attendees. Jfokus is arranged together with Javaforum Stockholm. Javaforum is a Swedish developer community and an official Java User Group (JUG) with the purpose to support Swedish developers. This year, JFokus will include Jfokus Embedded, a new sub-conference about the Internet of Things. As a testament to the Nordic technical community and JavaForum's ability to put on great conferences, both are sold sold out. 

Georges Saab, vice president of development for the Java Platform group at Oracle, will give the Jfokus opening keynote, titled "Making the Future Java…Together." Saab will discuss how Java's positive future is being made together between Oracle and the community at large, from the continued refinement of the Java Community Process, the increased transparency in the OpenJDK project to influence the future direction of Java, to greater ecosystem-driven efforts such as the Adopt-a-JSR project to drive broader developer participation.

jfokus embeddedThe Jfokus Embedded Keynote is titled "Taking Development to the Edge" and will be presented by Sharat Chander, group director of Java technology outreach at Oracle and Henrik Ståhl, senior director of Java product management at Oracle. The next frontier known as the "Internet of Things" is the millions, if not billions, of smart devices all connected through intelligent systems that will offer the world new solutions, opportunities and scale for greater productivity. The keynote will discuss this expanding frontier and how Java can enable developers to participate and build solutions for the ever-growing "Internet of Things" marketplace. The embedded sub-conference is comprised of several business and technical embedded-focused sessions, from noted companies such as Gemalto/Cinterion, Sierra Wireless, and Elvaco AB.   

If you are attending Jfokus, be sure to visit the Oracle booth. You can talk to very knowledgable Java Evangelists. You can see demos, such as Java Embedded/Raspberry Pi managing a remote solar array. Make sure you enter the raffle to win one of 10 Raspberry Pi devices!
