Welcome back folks. It's been a busy month with a week of it taken up by my attending the Java One conference in San Francisco.
This month I'll be demonstrating parsing a pdf using the iText library to automate data imports. I'll also be discussing my experience at the Java One conference - including topics such as the Java 8 Lambda's, Improvements to the VM on the new First Robotics roboRio, and the Java DIO project.
Come join us at TCC SouthEast campus. We meet the second Wed. of every month in room 4228 at 6PM. Thanks to our wonderful sponsor Tech Systems we have food, drink, and a door prize each month.
TCC SouthEast is located at 81st and Hwy 169. Room 4228 is on the second floor of the building to the left and behind the main admin building (which is directly in front of you when you drive into the colleges main entrance)
Well thanks to my company I'm able to attend JavaOne this year. The crowd is quite large and some of the topics are quite interesting. There is something for everyone (over 500 sessions) and a lot of useful information. I've already attended one Java User Group Leader session which presented ideas for growing your group. If you are interested the keynotes videos will be here soon:
Well my Humming Board finally arrived today. It only took 2 months from the time I ordered it, however I now have a shiny new quad core processor with two gigabytes of RAM that is the same form factor as the Raspberry Pi. The Humming Board is different from the PI in that is has more memory a replaceable processor unit and it also has wifi and bluetooth option built in. I'll post updates with more details on the specifications as I get to use it. Right now i have to go get a micro SD card
