JavaOne4Kids: Robots, Minecraft, and Coding

By David Lopez

Much like with language, kids have the ability to absorb and understand the basics of technology amazingly at an early age. Building the next generation of developers, engineers, and tech lovers, JavaOne4Kids is an entire day’s worth of sessions hosted on Saturday October 24th right before JavaOne begins (schedule available here). In order to ensure that the kids have the best time possible and want to come back for more, we try to offer lessons that spark their interest and creativity. These sessions are aimed at children 10-18 years old. There are 21 total sessions being offered over 3 time slots. Technologies covered include: Greenfoot, LEGO Mindstorms, Scratch, Leap Motion, Arduino, Python, NAO Robot, HTML5, JavaScript, Polymer, Raspberry Pi, Scala, Forge 1.8, Tynker, and, of course, Java. 

Each session is designed to reach out to a different age group or interest. For example, the young artists can draw their favorite animals with JavaScript; the gamers can mod Minecraft with Forge 1.8 or build their own game with Java or Scratch and Leap Motion, and robot enthusiasts can play with a NAO Robot. Registration for this event opens in September, but in order to make sure it’s the best that it can possibly be, we are now looking for volunteers to help with the workshops. Sign up to volunteer here. Your time will help inspire the next generation of Java Developers – a great way to give back to and help grow the Java Community.

Driverless Cars and Java

Paul Perrone is a regular fixture at JavaOne, and this year's conference is no exception. Perrone, founder and CEO of Perrone Robotics, will give a session called "Automated Vehicle Testing with Java." Perrone will talk about his company's Autonomous Vehicle Test System, developed for the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS). The system, written entirely in Java, will be used to independently test the safety of crash-avoidance systems.

“Many of today’s vehicles already have ‘crash-imminent braking’ and other features,” says Perrone. “But up until now, the IIHS hasn’t really had a way to test how well these technologies work in real-world situations with cars traveling at highway speeds.”

User Groups at JavaOne

User group leaders from around the world meet once a year at JavaOne. Each year, they organize the Forum meeting the Sunday before JavaOne. Speakers and topics are vetted by community. Anyone attending JavaOne whether they belong to a user group or not are invited to those sessions. Make sure you arrive on time for the Forum on Sunday. It starts at 8:00am at Moscone West. Among the topics this year are NetBeans community and tools, Java EE and Glassfish update, lightning talks about productivity, Java tools for Maven and Java EE, free Java tools and how to teach Java. And you don't want to miss James Gosling. He will present his latest work on the Raspberry Pi, Robots and Small Devices. If you have not registered already.

Register by tomorrow Friday August 1, 2014 and take advantage of the Early Bird rate. It is a US $400 saving on registration!
