Oracle is running the “Internet of Things (IoT) Developer Challenge” until May 30th, 2014. Submit a video and the code of your cool project, and you may win a trip to JavaOne 2014, a laptop, or other great prizes!

Don’t know where to start? Oracle is also providing free live sessions and online training running through April to help you get going. For example, next Monday (April 7) at 6:00pm UTC the session is about the “Internet of Things, Java and Raspberry Pi”. Plus, there is more help via online forums and other resources.

Find out all about the IoT Developer Challenge at The Java Source blog.

Cheers,

Lots of news-worthy stuff happening this week. A quick round-up:

  • Interview with Thomas Kurian, EVP of Product Development at Oracle (including the Java platform): “For Oracle, Every Revolution is an Evolution”.
  • The JRockit JVM license has been updated – JRockit is now free (gratis) for development and internal production use on general purpose computers. See the full text for all details.
  • Oracle introduces new Java Specification Requests to evolve Java Community Process (JCP.next JSR 1) towards more transparency and open participation.
  • Nokia’s updates to the Qt strategy are causing a lot of confusion among developers.
  • An interesting piece on Google’s latest cloud strategy push – just as on of its key cloud services goes down for 48 hours.
  • Facebook is committing one PR blunder after another. First, multiple issues with obscure privacy settings, opaque  terms-of-use, and questionable services – and now this.
  • Finally, if you’re interested in the SmartCard/Java Card space, check out the SIMAGINE awards – a total of of €55000 is up for grabs for the coolest SmardCard applications.

Cheers,
