Hi MelbJVMers

Oracle are looking at running a free online course on Raspberry Pi and Java in the embedded space.  They are currently getting expressions of interest by way of a survey which they've asked to share.   

I know a few of you already have or have looked at getting Raspberry Pi's or some form of embedded hardware. It would be a good idea to find out who amongst the group would find a course like this interesting.

The link to the survey is here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MLZCWJT 

I'm sure Oracle appreciate you filling it out.  

Also on the topic, we've been talking amongst the organisers about covering more embedded related topics.  Next meet up, Andrew Hamilton will be presenting a short talk on the work he has done with integrating Raspberry Pi with some sensors and building a web interface hosted on the Pi to output the results.  You can sign up here: http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Java-JVM-Users-Group/events/140852482

We are currently planning a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) which would be offered for free and would be designed to help people learn about Java in embedded applications, specifically using the Raspberry Pi.

To really make the course useful will involve connecting things to the Pi and then writing code to become part of the Internet of Things.  We have ideas about what we can do for this, but would like to understand what level of interest there is and what kind of cost (for equipment) is acceptable.

To do this we've put together a short survey that you can find here:


We would really appreciate it if you could forward this to your JUG membership.  The more we know about what people want, the more we will be able to ensure we deliver the appropriate content.

Thanks in advance,
