Today's ARM-based development boards such as the Raspberry Pi is a perfect platform for using Java SE Embedded technology to take advantage of portability and high performance within a large ecosystem of free Java tools, open source code, applications, and a solid base of skilled developers.
Java SE Embedded technology also allows development to a wide range of device interfaces including USB, GPIO, I2C, serial, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and many other types of peripheral connections.
This session shows how Java SE Embedded technology on an embedded Linux/ARM Raspberry Pi hobby target device is perfect for embedded device development for accessing peripherals such as microcontrollers, circuits, motors, sensors, and other hardware components. Come learn the things you didn't know you could program on embedded devices in Java technology that are normally done in other programming languages.
