Watch as Duke delights JavaOne attendees who lined before the JavaOne keynotes on Sunday.
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.
