Arduino is a popular, open source electronics prototyping platform that is intended for artists, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects. It can sense the environment and affect its surroundings by controlling just about anything: light, motor, and more.

This session will introduce you to Physical Computing, Arduino and how Arduino can be integrated with the Java platform.

The session will include:

  • An introduction to Physical Computing and Arduino
  • How to develop Arduino applications
  • A brief overview of electronics key principles
  • How to integrate Arduino with Java
  • Live demos to illustrate the various points

This session is for anyone who wants to learn how they can, with just their Java skills, extend their applications to reach the physical world.
