From codecentric AG
Sven Ruppert is speaking Java since 1996 and working as Principal IT Consultant at codecentric AG in Munich. In his free time he is writing articles for german magazines (javamagazin/eclipsemagazin/entwicklermagazin) and tech blogs like JAXEnter.de (http://jaxenter.de/Sven-Ruppert-168244)
This year, Sven is on his private JUG - Tour: http://www.rapidpm.org/p/conferences-and-talks.html
TinkerForge is a very simple, easy-to-handle modular electronic system. Depending on the application, a system of sensor, wireless and motor control elements can be built in a modular way and programmed with a few lines of code. No soldering iron is needed. Both the hardware and the software are open source.
After a brief overview of the available sensors and actuators, we will quickly start with the actual programming. Together, we will explore different applications, architectures, and the combination of TinkerForge with Java. Using sensors, actuators and some other elements, we will take the first steps and delve into the practical world of IoT with Java 8 and TinkerForge.
What do I need to bring? - A laptop on which you can install software - Java 8 (JDK) installed and running - A JDK 8 capable IDE Optionally, you can of course also bring your own Raspberry Pi or the like.
Goals: - addressing sensors, storing data and display them using JavaFX. - distributing over MQTT - (opt) parallel processing of sensor data streams using Java 8 Streams - using touch elements
