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.

New Java Releases Will Tackle Developer Pain Points

By Roger Smith


JavaOne 2015 Keynote Focuses on Future Java Platforms

The half-dozen presentations in the opening JavaOne keynote featured a few looks in the rearview mirror to honor Java's 20-year rise to become the dominate general-purpose computer programming language, but otherwise it was a pedal to the metal focus on new features in the various Java ME, Java SE and Java EE platforms. A familiar face from Java's past also made a brief and humorous video appearance to cap an eventful 2-hour session on Sunday, October 25, 2015 at Moscone Center in San Francisco.

  • Also a back up to your presentations on a USB drive (better safe than sorry)

In your schedule, be sure to add the keynotes, hangout places, social events and more. Download the JavaOne mobile application to make sure you are not missing anything.

  • Keynotes  are on Sunday at 1:45pm - 4:00pm at the Moscone North-Hall D. Stop by the OTN Kick Off party and celebrate 20 years of Java before the keynote.
  • The spot to hang out on your break is Dukes Café on Taylor Street Café. There will also be evening entertainment and networking at Duke's Café everyday Monday through Thursday.
  • Oracle Appreciation Event on Wednesday 6:30pm - 12:00am on Treasure Island. Complimentary shuttle buses depart at 5:30pm
  • Java Hub inside the exhibition Hall Open Monday - Wednesday 9:30 - 5:30. Showcasing the MakerZone, the Oracle Technology Network Community Café, and Wolf Nkole Helzle’s myMatrix. Coming back this year will be JavaOne favorites, including NightHacking, Hackergarten, and 3D Modeling.
