A few months ago, the Java 8 World Tour reached Australia, with Java evangelist Angela Caicedo visiting several JUGs and other organizations, such as the  Australian Institute of Marine Science, to demonstrate the latest Java features.

The main themes covered throughout the Australian tour focused on Java 8 and Java ME 8, including a Raspberry Pi lab. "Everything was really well received" reports Angela, "And it was lots of fun!" For example, the Sydney event was great, with around 150 attendees. They spent almost 3 hours covering Java 8 and Java embedded 8, with great audience engagement and participation.

A key finding of the tour was that Java ME together with NetBeans IDE provides a way better experience compared to manual development using Java SE together with Pi4j, with the range of command line tools normally required for uploading apps to remote devices.
