Lightweight Software on Lightweight Hardware Liberty Profile on the Raspberry Pi

Lightweight Software on Lightweight Hardware - Liberty Profile on the Raspberry Pi

Presented by Simon Maple: "Come and see the coolest thing I've ever done at IBM :o)  A Raspberry Pi is a credit card sized computer designed for encouraging school children to program. I've taken that uber-lightweight computer and installed Debian Linux, Java and the new Liberty Profile.

Come to this session to have a play with the Raspberry Pi to hear what I did and some of the problems/fun I had!

Also you'll see what's likely to be the smallest computer WebSphere App Server has *ever* run on in the world, for your own eyes!

    I came along for the Pi, but left much more interested in Liberty Profile. It all looks very developer friendly and slick, and I'm really looking forward to giving a whirl.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
