Fourfecta! Java, IoT, Making and Raspi

June 18th, 2014 Leave a Comment

Here comes more Maker content for your reading pleasure, this time it’s an OTN piece on Java and the Internet of Things:

A Perfect Match: Java and the Internet of Things

The piece features lots of Noel (@noelportugal) wisdom, on making, on IoT, on the Raspi and on Java, his own personal fourfecta. If you’re scanning (shame on you), look for the User Experience and the Internet of Things section.

Here’s a very Noel quote:

“Java powers the internet, our banks, and retail enterprises—it’s behind the scenes everywhere,” remarks Portugal. “So we can apply the same architectures, security, and communication protocols that we use on the enterprise to an embedded device. I have used Arduino, but it would be hard to start a web server with it. But with Raspberry Pi, I can run a server, or, for example, use general-purpose I/O where I can connect sensors. The point is that developers can translate their knowledge of Java from developing on the enterprise to embedded things.”

For those attending Kscope14 next week, come find us for the in-person version and see IFTTPi, the fourfecta in action.
