Usually Java developers do not create code for embedded devices because there was no good Java support on these devices. Oracle figured out that there is a huge market for embedded devices and decided to support Java and JavaFX on hardware like the very popular Raspberry Pi and the BeagleBoard xM. With Java technology available on these platforms it’s very interesting to see what you can do with this. This session will give you a short overview on the available technologies and will show some examples of what you can do with JavaFX on an device like the Raspberry Pi to give the audience some ideas on the possibilities.
