JavaOne is underway! If you’re at the conference, have a great week, attend a bunch of sessions, but more importantly enjoy the hallway track. For those of you not at JavaOne, batten down the hatches if you’re on twitter and are trying to get work done this week!
- Jasper and Richard just presented in the JavaOne technical keynote, where they showed a custom-made tablet device called the DukePad. It is powered by a Raspberry Pi and featuring a touch screen, camera, HDMI output, GPIO pins, and more. It is powered with Java and has a custom-built JavaFX user interface.
