Java, JavaFX and a Raspberry Pi are an ideal combination for any project where you want to connect software and hardware (LEDs, buttons, sensors...) with a beautiful, easy-to-use user interface. In this talk, we will go through the process of building a JavaFX touchscreen user interface to control a relay board and an Arduino with LED strips that were needed to solve the problem of getting my son to the dinner table while he is playing the drums...
This includes selecting a Java JDK for Raspberry Pi, setting up a Mosquitto queue, programming the Arduino, understanding the GPIO's on the Raspberry Pi, including a web server, and a lot more. We will also have guest appearances of Spring, Undertow, MQTT, OpenWeatherAPI, Pi4J, IntelliJ, Visual Studio Code, AdoptOpenJDK, BellSoft Liberica, I²C, Python ... and some free copies of the ebook!
Hardware experiments may seem challenging but with some basic knowledge and cheap components, you'll discover it’s a great way to learn a lot of new stuff!
