Tell Your Manager about JavaOne: A How-To

JavaOne is an investment in yourself—your efficiency, your grasp of new technologies, your ability to finish that latest project. As such, it’s also an investment in your company, and it’s an investment that pays for itself as you become more efficient and skilled, but you probably already knew that. The question is: Does your manager know that? If they don’t know, don’t worry. We’re here to help you come up with some compelling reasons. In fact, we’ve written an entire customizable letter that you can use. 

The letter highlights some key features of JavaOne. The technical nature of the conference sessions is stated clearly. You’re not coming out to San Francisco to listen to product advertisements; you’re coming to learn from some of the best minds in Java today. It also mentions the great collaborative opportunities that the conference offers. With so many developers under the same roof, some serious collaboration, present and future, is bound to happen. And on top of all that, right now you’ll save $400 off the conference price, so if you’re considering waiting to state your case, act quickly while we can still offer such savings.

Don't Miss Java University!

The tech world moves fast. Catch up. Blink. And it’s gone again. New tools and new methods are always coming out. From time to time, we all need a light refresher course or a breakneck sprint to catch back up. Luckily, Java University is here. Taking place on Sunday, September 18th, Java University is the perfect place to get the most Java knowledge out of your San Francisco trip.

Java University is a collection of full-day seminars designed and taught by experts. Each session runs from 8:30am-3:30pm with a lecture, demos, and whiteboarding on a specific Java topic. This extended session format allows students the time to really dig into the material, and instructor slides are available to students after the session, so the learning doesn’t stop there. Sessions this year are:

  • Lift and Shift: Moving Your Java Apps to and from Oracle Cloud
  • Using the Power of Java 8 Lambda Expressions and Streams
  • Recommended Practices for Java Performance Tuning
  • Architect and Design Secure Robust Enterprise Java Applications for the Cloud and Beyond
  • Validating X.509 Certificates in SSL/TLS

3D Printing with a Java Rockstar

By Roger Smith

 

Controlling a 3D Printer with Java and VRL-Studio

I chatted with Java Rockstar Michael Hoffer on Tuesday at the Java Hub in the Exhibit hall about VRL-Studio, an innovative visual programming environment he created in Java that combines visual and text-based programming. Currently doing his PhD at the Department of Computer Science and Mathematics at the University of Frankfurt, Germany, Hoffer works at the Goethe-Center for Scientific Computing in Frankfurt. His research interests are in developing visual programming concepts in the field of modeling and simulation of highly complex physical processes including those modeled by medical scanning equipment.

Robots Look for Human Companions at JavaOne

By Roger Smith

 

Humaoid Robots Are Big in Japan

I spent part of this afternoon at the MakerZone, which is part of the Java Hub at this year's JavaOne Exhibit Hall, where I had a brief, enjoyable chat with Pepper, a 4-foot tall humanoid robot. Created by Aldebaran Robotics, Pepper is a social robot able to recognize and react to human emotions and carry on simple conversations in as many as 28 different languages. (I met and wrote about Nao, Pepper’s androgynous older sibling, in a recent JavaOne4kids workshop that showed how Nao could be taught to walk, talk, catch small objects and even dance). Besides being almost twice as tall as Nao, Pepper moves around on three omnidirectional wheels rather than feet like Nao. The Nao robot has been in development since 2006, while Pepper only has been around for a little over a year. Pepper’s added wheels give him greater range and almost 14 hours of battery life, which is three times the amount Nao has. The additional battery life was a requirement, said Nicholas Rigaud, Developer Community Leader for Aldebaran, since he was designed to greet and interact with customers in retail stores owned by Japanese mobile phone operator SoftBank Mobile, Aldebaran’s parent company.
