Do you like coffee with your dessert? Java and the Raspberry Pi

Simon Ritter

The Raspberry Pi has caused a huge wave of interest amongst developers, providing an ARM powered single board computer running a full Linux distro off an SD card and all for only $35!

This session will look at how Java can be used on a device like this. Oracle recently released an early access preview of JDK8 including JavaFX that is specifically tuned for the Raspberry Pi. Using this release we will show a variety of demonstrations of what the Raspberry Pi is capable of. The Raspberry Pi also provides GPIO line access and we’ll cover how these can be used from Java applications. Prepare to be amazed at what this tiny board can do.
