The buzz around the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow.
It's not hard to see how the proliferation of intelligent devices has become a natural part of our digital world. Nearly everyone carries an intelligent device in the form of a smart of feature phone, but did you know by the year 2020, there will be more than six connected devices per person?
These devices will:
- Make our cars more efficient and reliable.
- Monitor our homes and work places.
- Keep track of shipments and other assets.
- Remotely manage utilities and infrastructure and more.
Oracle Java Platform, Micro Edition (Java ME) Embedded
Oracle Java Platform, Micro Edition (Java ME) Embedded is the proven platform for these devices, allowing developers to leverage their existing skills, while creating applications that take advantage of micro controllers and sensors.
By enrolling in Java ME Embedded: Develop Applications for Embedded Devices, a new Oracle University course, you can learn how to write embedded applications that read and write to peripheral devices, including: analog sensor devices, switches, LEDs, pulse sensors, inter-integrated circuits and much more.
This focused, two-day course also helps you develop the skills to manage data collection and distribution, including the Application Management System (AMS), Generic Connection Framework, logging, network and file I/O and record management storage.
