19:00 - Decrypting Tech Hype for the Busy Coder
It seems like there is a new technology trend, development methodology, or deployment tool coming out every day and if you aren't using it you are labelled as deprecated, legacy, or a technology dinosaur!
Come hear straight talk about the latest trends such as blockchain, chatbots, serverless, CD pipelines, AI, and machine learning. In 45 minutes you will know more than your average redditor, and you can shut down tweet-driven development in your workplace once and for all.
20:30 - RetroPi Handheld Raspberry Pi Gaming Console (with Java!)
In this session I will walk you through how to build your own retro handheld console that is powered by Java, runs on a Raspberry Pi, and is printed on a 3D printer. Some of the topics that we will cover along the journey include:
Hacking Java on the Raspberry Pi
Rigging input devices with Pi4J
Insane performance tuning on the JVM
Why your boss [or SO] needs to buy you a 3D printer!
And of course your retro gaming mettle will be put to the test, so make sure to dust off your old 8 and 16 bit consoles to prepare.
This presentation is about the most fun you can have while still legitimately calling this conference “work.” In fact, I will hopefully inspire you to do your own creative “work” leveraging Java and Raspberry Pi to hack the real world.
Stephen Chin is Director of the Oracle Groundbreakers Team, author of Raspberry Pi with Java, co-author of Pro JavaFX Platform, and Oracle Code One Content Chair.
He has keynoted numerous Java conferences around the world including JavaOne, where he is a 7-time Rock Star Award recipient. Stephen is an avid motorcyclist who has done evangelism tours in Europe, Japan, and Brazil, interviewing hackers in their natural habitat and posting the videos on http://nighthacking.com/.
When he is not traveling, he enjoys teaching kids how to do embedded and robot programming together with his teenage daughter.
