You can stay for less than an hour, several hours, a day, or the entire time of the conference. JSR contributors will be onsite to help. Topics include Java EE, Data Grids, Java SE 8 (Lambdas and Date & Time API) and OpenJDK. Java Champion Andres Almiray organizes Hackergarten at many conferences around the world. Check the hackergarten.net for events close to you!

What's that Java and the Internet of Things? Check out what's new with the platform and how it provides a great solution for the Internet of Things. Whether you are working in the industry or just want to do your own DIY projects. Stop by Java IoT Demo Showcase and learn what you can do with Java. The cool keynote demo will be there as well for all 3 days of the conference.

Learn how to use 3D Modeling with JavaFX 3D, Java Embedded, and 3D printing. You will experience the entire process from the modeling interface to the 3D printing of no less than the Duke. Computer scientist Michael Hoffer from the Goethe-Center in Germany will demo his 3D modeling software.

The scavenger hunt at the Java Hub will add a twist of fun to the discovery of Java technologies. The Java Hub will be located in the JavaOne Exhibit Hall at Hilton San Francisco Union Square.

Thanks to the Java Product team and Oracle Technology Network for bringing this new experience to JavaOne attendees.

Winning Project Bot-So

“Bot-So is not just a robot; we tried to personify it by making it present in social media." explains Debraj Dutta, director, EdifixioIndia. Bot-So, a smart social robot that interacts with you via Twitter won the IoT Developer Challenge last month.

Created by Debraj Dutta, Tapas Bose, and Avinaba Majumder from Edifixio India, the robot can be deployed for remote home surveillance by sending a tweet. It surveys your interior space when the motion detector is triggered.

"And what could be a better platform than the Oracle Internet of Things Developer Challenge to showcase Bot-So to the world. We are really excited about this project and believe it will have a lot of good use in society. We are thrilled that we have won this award and we look forward to doing a lot more things to take Bot-So further and be a key contributor to the Internet of Things revolution” adds Debraj Dutta.

Meet the team at JavaOne 2014, from September 28 to October 2, 2014.

Adam Bien's Java EE Sessions at JavaOne 2014

By Guest Blogger Reza Rahman

For the Java EE track at JavaOne 2014 we will highlight some key sessions and speakers to better inform you of what you can expect.

To this end we recently interviewed none other than Adam Bien. In the very unlikely case that you don't know who Adam is he is a key Java EE advocate, independent consultant, Java EE expert member, highly popular speaker, blogger and author. To add to Adam's extensive credentials he is also a Java Champion, Top Java Ambassador and JavaOne Rock Star. Few folks have done as much to advocate Java EE as Adam has, especially in Germany and Europe. We are very honored to have Adam speak at JavaOne and interview him on his sessions this year:


Adam has several key sessions on the track:

">"> • Unorthodox Enterprise Practices: Modern Java EE aside, server-side Java is certainly not a new technology. Over the years server-side Java development has picked up the clutter of many outdated practices and patterns. In this live coding session Adam attempts to remove some of that clutter by demonstrating first hand just how lean and lightweight Java EE 7 applications should be. Many of the practices he demonstrates are from the real world projects in his highly successful consulting practice.

Enterprise Nashorn: As some of you may be aware, Nashorn is the brand new JavaScript engine included in  JDK 8. In this session Adam demonstrates some innovative uses of Nashorn with Java EE 7 applications.

Java EE 8 Community Update and Panel: This panel is intended to be an open forum for discussing Java EE 8. The panel consists of both some vendors and key folks in the community like Adam. The panel will be moderated by my colleague Bruno Borges. The idea is to encourage panelists to interact with each other and the audience.

Adam also has a session titled Productive JavaFX 8. In this session he discusses ideas like integrating JavaFX with Java EE 7 and Java SE 8. If you are already a Java EE fan or still just evaluating, you will be well-served to attend Adam's sessions at JavaOne. In the months running up to JavaOne we hope to highlight a few more key folks and sessions, so do stay tuned.
