Watch as Duke delights JavaOne attendees who lined before the JavaOne keynotes on Sunday.
By Guest Blogger Bob Larsen, Java.net Editor
JavaOne officially started today with User Group Sunday, and, as usual, gave a strong showing out of the gate with some tremendous sessions.
When was the last time you built something, just for the fun of it? Maybe it was yesterday, and that’s great. But if it’s been a while, we hope the latest issue of Java Magazine will inspire you. It celebrates the spirit of making and the people who are creating new and innovative technologies and services.
In our interview with Dale Dougherty, Make: magazine founder and Maker Faire cocreator, we explore what’s behind the growing Maker Movement and how it relates to software development.
We also recognize the winners of the 2014 Duke’s Choice Awards, which honor compelling and innovative uses of Java technology. These winning makers help ensure safer travel, feed hungry refugees, improve crop yields, provide cool technology, and aim to end a decade-long debate in the Java community.
And we're excited to recognize the winners of the first-ever IoT Developer Challenge, who used embedded Java with computer boards and other devices and IoT technologies to showcase innovations in domotics, robotics, office design, authentication, and rating systems.
Read the latest issue of Java Magazine today.

Join us and discover the power of Java Embedded technologies through hands-on demonstrations with Java experts from Oracle and the Java Community. Included will be examples of Java SE Embedded, Java ME Embedded and Java Card technologies; Each of these Java technologies will be running on accessible development platforms such as the Raspberry Pi.
The NAO Humanoid robot, capable of human interaction, that leverages Java APIs to understand and interpret the data received by its sensors, then act on that input to respond as programmed by the developer.
Also on display will be the Liquid Robotics Wave Glider! The Wave Glider is a self-propelling, autonomous marine robot running Java SE Embedded that collects and transmits ocean data from a fully ruggedized enclosure with a hybrid power and propulsion system. It uses both wave-powered and stored solar energy to navigate challenging ocean conditions (doldrums, high currents, and hurricanes/cyclones). James Gosling will be at JavaOne, speaking about the robots, the Wave Glider, Java and more! Be sure to drop by and see all the exciting hands-on demos at our Showcase in the Java Hub!
