Nordic Tour with Stephen Chin

Jfokus NightHacking


LEVEL: Intermediate


Presentation; Mocha Raspberry Pi Hacking

The Rasberry Pi is a 25 USD, credit-card sized computer that that plugs in to any HDMI TV and USB keyboard/mouse. It includes an ARM chip that is powerful enough to run Linux and a full version of Java SE including JavaFX. In this session you will get a chance to see Java and JavaFX technology running on a very accessible embedded platform. With a full Java Virtual Machine at your disposal, the possibilities are endless!

Stephen Chin is a Java Ambassador at Oracle specializing in UI technology and co-author of the Pro JavaFX Platform 2 title, which is the leading technical reference for JavaFX. He has been featured at Java conferences around the world and at JavaOne, he twice received a Rock Star Award. In his evenings and weekends, Stephen is an open-source hacker, working on projects including ScalaFX, a DSL for JavaFX in the Scala language, Visage, a UI oriented JVM language, JFXtras, a JavaFX component and extension library, and Apropos, an Agile Project Portfolio scheduling tool written in JavaFX.

Part 2 Nighthacking with Pär Sikö and Martin Gunnarsson

In this Nighthacking session we will go though a few useful examples of what you can do with JavaFX. The content is divided into three sections: First, we'll start by showing you what you can do if you mix JavaFX and HTML5. Second, we'll go back in time to when the Amiga was the state of the art computer with it's amazing graphics and sound, and show you how to implement some of the classic demo effects of the time. Third, and this is perhaps the best (or worst) part, we'll show you what we are going to do in the future. We don't wan't to spoil the secret but it includes 1800 kilometres on a bike together with JavaFX.

We will also be live streaming this session as a part of the Jfokus NightHacking Nordic Tour. From Jan 25th to Feb 7th Stephen Chin will be traveling across the Nordic countries and doing live video streaming of the journey. Along the way I will visit user groups, interviewing interesting folks, and hack on open source projects. The last stop will be the Jfokus conference in Sweden, which is the most influential conference in Northern Europe!
