Help Build the Future at the JavaOne Hackergarten

By David Lopez

This year’s Java Hub has it all! There’s NightHacking, interactive art, 3D printing, and more, but if you want to meet some new people, learn new tech, and contribute to open source projects, then there’s no better place to be than the Hackergarten at the Java Hub

Starting Monday the 26th at 10am in the Java Hub (at the JavaOne exhibit hall in the Hilton Union Square), you can bring your laptop, grab some Wi-Fi and power, and work with Java experts on a variety of projects. Each day, there will be 2 tracks running different projects simultaneously. Each track will be working on 3 projects per day for about 2 hours each, but feel free to stop by for an hour or however long you can to contribute and learn. Topics this year are:
OpenJDK, JSRs 354, 363 and 377
Java 8
Minecraft Modding/Java EE
Java EE 7
JavaFX Mobile/Embedded
CDI, JSR 365
JavaFX Tweet Wall
Each session will have an expert or two to lead it. Check out the schedule for a full list of who’s running what and when, and check out what else the Java Hub has to offer here!

Vote on the sessions at JavaOne

Give your feedback on sessions at JavaOne! You will find voting machines in every session room at JavaOne. To vote, choose between a happy, neutral, or sad Duke by clicking on it.

In this video, Michael Heinrichs and Hendrik Ebbers from Canoo discuss how they created the voting machine. They will also present a JavaOne session about the voting machine on Monday, Oct. 26 at 2:30pm. They used Java 8 and JavaFX on a Raspberry Pi. 

After each session be sure to let us know how you felt by voting!

JavaOne Track Highlights: Java Clients and User Interfaces

By David Lopez

The JavaOne 2015 Content Catalog is live. We’ve got hundreds of great sessions covering all things Java related. To help you find exactly what you’re looking for, be it Server-Side Development, Security, or anything in between, the sessions have been placed into tracks. There are 8 tracks at this year’s conference designed to be the ultimate guide to help you stay on top of the latest innovations in Java technologies. This is the seventh post in a series on the tracks being offered at this year’s conference. Last week, we looked at the Java and Server-Side Development track. Today, let’s look at the Java Clients and User Interfaces track and a few featured sessions.

This track is designed to give you the tools and skills you need to make sure your UI is effective as the rest of your application. With all the new ways that we interact with tech, including touch screen devices, user interfaces are no longer an afterthought. Each UI must be carefully planned if you are going to make each device just as user friendly while leveraging the unique benefits of each type of device to the fullest extent. The Java Clients and User Interfaces track will help develop your JavaFX, HTLM5, and JavaScript skills for everything from small, handheld devices to more powerful systems.

On this track, be sure to check out the featured session: “Building Applications with PostgreSQL’s jsonb Datatype, Play 2 Framework, and REST” by Anton Kazakov from Softarex Technologies Inc. This is a Hands-on Lab Session, meaning you’ll walk away with firsthand knowledge. The session was covered in last week’s blog on the Java and Server-Side Development track, so I won’t go into it at length here, but it is a great way to learn a technique for managing difficult class hierarchies and data that would usually require multiple databases. Also on the Java Clients and User Interfaces track is “One Codebase to Rule Them All: Going Mobile wit 2048FX” by Jens Deters and José Pereda. Looking to turn your JavaFX-made desktop game application into a mobile app that can be distributed on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store? This session will show you how! Using JavaFXPorts, only minor changes are required to take your game and make it mobile. Another great session to look out for will teach you to build a voice user interface (VUI). For information on building a VUI, check out “Speech Recognition in Java” by Breandan Considine from JetBrains, Inc. This session will give you the tools to build a speech recognizer by taking advantage of open source libraries, making it easier to focus on the VUI.
To see more from this track, head over to the Content Catalog and filter by Java Clients and User Interfaces. It’s shaping up to be a great JavaOne 2015. Make sure you don’t miss out on all the latest innovations in Java and the great opportunities to connect with the Java Community. Register  today!
