Saturday includes a special Devoxx4Kids event in conjunction with the London Java Community. It's design to teach 10-16 year-olds simple programming concepts, robotics, electronics, and games making. Workshops include LEGO Mindstorms (robotic engineering), Greenfoot (programming), Arduino (electronics), Scratch (games making), Minecraft Modding (game hacking) and NAO (robotic programming). Small fee, you must register.

If you can't attend Devoxx UK in person, stay tuned to the YouTube/Java channel. I'll be doing plenty of interviews so you can join the fun from around the world.

OpenJDK Test Fest and Devoxx UK

The London Java user group is organizing the first Test Fest on March 23rd in London with the collaboration of Oracle and IBM. "Contributors to OpenJDK need to be confident that their changes are sound and do not cause problems elsewhere." explains event host Martijn Verburg. Many test cases are already available but each application has different characteristics, environment and other attributes. The goal is to provide a larger and more comprehensive series of tests for Open JDK. 

If you cannot attend this event, the organizers and some of the guest presenters from Oracle and IBM - among them Oracle engineer Stuart Marks - will be at Devoxx UK starting Monday evening until Thursday (from March 25th until the 27th). Stuart Marks will present a Bird-of-a-Feather (BoF) session about "the testing of OpenJDK" on Tuesday, March 26th at 8:00pm and Martijn Verburg will talk about OpenJDK Hack Session Tuesday evening at 8:00pm and 9:00pm. Don't forget to register for Devoxx UK!
