Pi on Wheels, Make Your Own Robot 

By Michael Hoffer, computer scientist, Goethe-Center for Scientific Computing in Frankfurt

The Pi on Wheels is an affordable open source DIY robot that is ideal for learning Java-related technologies in the context of the 
Internet of Things. In this session we will talk about how 3D printing works and how it can be utilized to build robots. The most 
fascinating aspect of 3D printing is that it is astonishingly easy to customize the robot. It allows you to build something completely 
new and different. We provide a Java based IDE that allows you to control and program the robot. In addition to that it can be used 
to programmatically design 3D geometries.  


By Alex Barclay, Principal Product Manager, Solaris and Systems Security, Oracle

Learn and understand about the security threats to your public and private cloud and gain insight into how the Oracle Security 
Architecture helps reduce risk. This webcast will provide detailed information on the top 20 cloud security threats and how different 
parts of the Oracle systems stack help eliminate each threat.

By Christian Shay, Principal Product Director, Oracle

This session explores .NET coding and tuning best practices to achieve faster data access performance. It presents techniques 
and trade-offs for optimizing connection pooling, caching, data fetching and updating, statement batching, and Oracle datatype 
usage. We will also explore using Oracle Performance Analyzer from Visual Studio to tune a .NET application's use of the Oracle 
Database end to end.

By Kent Graziano, Oracle ACE Director and Principal of Data Warrior
Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler (SDDM) has been around for a few years now and is up to version 4.1. It really is an industrial 
strength data modeling tool that can be used for any data modeling task you need to tackle. This presentation will demonstrate at 
least five features, tips, and tricks that I rely on to make me more efficient (and agile) in developing my models. 

Get SDDM installed on your device and bring it to the session so you can follow along.

WebLogic Server 12.1.3 provides support for innovative APIs and productive Tools for application development, including APIs for 
JAX-RS 2.0, JSON Processing (JSR 353), WebSocket (JSR 356), and JPA 2.1. This session from the July 2015 OTN Virtual 
Technology Summit provides an overview of each of these APIs, and then demonstrate how you can use these capabilities to 
simplify the development of server applications accessed by "rich" clients using lightweight web-based protocols such as REST 
and WebSocket.

OTN Virtual Technology Summit – Spotlight on Operating Systems, Virtualization Technologies and Hardware


The Virtual Technology Summit is a series of interactive online events with hands-on sessions and presenters answering technical questions. The events are sponsored by the Oracle Technology Network (OTN). These are free events but you must register.

Operating Systems, Virtualization Technologies and Hardware Sessions:

Designing a Multi-Layered Security Strategy - Security is a concern of every IT manager and it is clear that perimeter defense, trying to keep hackers out of your network, is not enough. At some point someone with bad intentions will penetrate your network and to prevent significant damage it is necessary to make sure there are multiple layers of defense. Hear about Oracle’s defense in depth for data centers including some new and unique security features built into the new SPARC M7 processor.

How to Increase Application Security & Reliability with Software in Silicon Technology - Learn about Software in Silicon Application Data Integrity (ADI) and how you can use this revolutionary technology to catch memory access errors in production code. Also explore key features for developers that make it easy and simple to create secure and reliable high performance applications.

Eliminate Cloud Security Threats with Oracle Systems - Learn and understand about the security threats to your public and private cloud and gain insight into how the Oracle Security Architecture helps reduce risk. This webcast will provide detailed information on the top 20 cloud security threats and how different parts of the Oracle systems stack help eliminate each threat.
