Abstract: is the new Java community platform with everything you need to do your daily Java development work — with reference materials on the latest OpenJDK versions, vendors, and distributions, together with insights into the latest quarterly updates, articles, blogs, tips and tricks, and much more. And all for free, accompanied by a Slack channel for discussion on all things Java and OpenJDK.

To celebrate and introduce, members of the Foojay community are doing a JUG tour and one of the stops is right here. Come join in, learn about Foojay, and hear Frank Delporte speak on The Future of Java on Raspberry Pi: Java, JavaFX, Raspberry Pi and Electronics.

Java on the Raspberry Pi is still a controversial topic, but recent evolutions of both the JDK and OpenJFX have proven they are a perfect match! In this talk, we will look into some examples and discuss what could be the next steps. We will take a look at the current state of Java, JavaFX, and Pi4J on the Raspberry Pi. Still, most Java developers didn’t consider the Raspberry Pi yet to be the perfect board to run their applications, but with its low price but high specifications, the Raspberry Pi is opening whole new worlds.
