Sun SPOTs triple-shot: Open sourcing, Podcast, and the Mobile & Embedded Developer Days
If you haven't noticed, Sun SPOTs are really starting to take off. I blogged about some developments a couple of months back but this month we have a "Sun SPOT triple-shot" for you!
First, a first wave of SPOT-related code has been open sourced in the Mobile & Embedded Community:
- SPOTs - Small Java powered Wireless Transducer Devices (spots)
- Applications developed for Sun SPOTs (spots-applications)
- Demo code distributed with the Sun SPOT SDK (spots-sdk-demos)
- Instructional material incorporating Sun SPOTs (spots-curriculum)
Check it out ... plus, community members are already busy adding more projects. And I'm going to hint that there is much more to come.
Second, we just released podcast #31 with an interview with Roger Meike, the manager of the Sun SPOT team. He talks about what's going in on the world of Sun SPOTs and where things are headed.
Third, it so happens that the Java Mobile & Embedded Developer Days is becoming a hotbed of Sun SPOTs and deeply embedded technologies and will be the must-attend event of 2008 for anyone interested in that area. Many of the experts will be present at the conference, from the Sun SPOT teamÂ to Bruce Boyes (founder and CTO of Systronix) and Joe Polastre (CTO and co-founder of Sentilla). Expect some exciting demos, discussions, and content from the leading individuals in the field.
And last but not least, Sun SPOTs will become available for sale in 34 countries around the world very soon - finally!
See you January 23 & 24! Cheers,
