User Group Sunday Kicks Things Off

By Guest Blogger Bob Larsen, Java.net Editor

JavaOne officially started today with User Group Sunday, and, as usual, gave a strong showing out of the gate with some tremendous sessions.  

User Group Sunday sessions targeted both current and future Java User Group leaders, including “Starting a JUGgernaut: How to Start and Rapidly Grow Your JUG”  and “Tools for the Day-to-Day of JUG Management.”  

There was also a wide selection of technical sessions including introductions to new features released in Java 8, demonstrations of exciting ways Java is currently being used, and panel sessions that allowed attendees to have their questions answered by the rock stars of the Java community.

User Group Sunday took place concurrently with Netbeans Day.  Community members shared the interesting and myriad ways in which they are using both the Netbeans IDE and the Netbeans platform.  They also shared tricks and tools to help make Java developers more productive and even to teach the next generation of Java developers.

Perhaps the most alarming announcement came when Juggy, the Java Finch, unveiled a prototype RoboJuggy, which is controlled by a Raspberry Pi running Java, of course.  Juggy plans to build an army of RoboJuggies to “spread Java everywhere through world domination.”  Community leaders have opened diplomatic negotiations with Juggy to deescalate the situation.

Robots, NetBeans IDE, and Raspberry Pi with James Gosling

James Gosling is now chief software architect of the Wave Glider, the flagship product at Liquid Robotics. The Wave Glider is a self-propelled, autonomous marine robot that collects and transmits ocean data. The Wave Glider will be on display exclusively at the Java Hub in the JavaOne exhibit hall during the entire conference. 

Since Gosling started at Liquid Robotics, he has re-architected the onboard software and refined a data-as-a-service cloud to provide direct, real-time access to ocean information. Java, which he invented, has played an increasing role in ocean data transmission and analysis.  

“Being able to debug and profile robots out at sea is a truly life-altering experience,” Gosling explains. He uses a set of tools—consisting of editors, debuggers, and profilers—that are part of the NetBeans IDE. At the JavaOne 2014 NetBeans Community Day, he will present the session “James Gosling, Robots, the Raspberry Pi, and Small Devices” [UGF8907] on Sunday, September 28. He will also present “Debugging and Profiling Robots with James Gosling” [CON6699] on Wednesday, October 1. Geertjan Wielenga, Mark Heckler, José Pereda, Johannes Weigend, Shai Almog and Jens Deters will join him to discuss those two topics. 

Join him as he closes out the JavaOne Community Keynote with a fun, historical perspective of the genesis of Java, and a T-shirt toss! The Community Keynote will be held in the Marriott Marquis, Salon 7/8/9, on Thursday, October 2, 2014
