After just returning from India a few days ago I'm off to the next conference, the Open Source in Mobile conference in San Francisco next week on Tuesday and Wednesday. ... On that day I will be doing a talk on "Open Source Java and its Impact upon the Mobile Industry" and I put together a brand-new presentation for that ...
The goal of the Centre for Mobile Education Research is to help universities worldwide in integrating mobile devices into the Computer Science and Engineering Curriculums...
A few months back, we enabled the ability to resolve Sip URIs using DNS in SailFin. This is based on RFC 3263. Lets discuss how DNS can be used to determine both protocol and port number of a UAS from sailfin.
As it turns out I'm hopping over to Mobile World Congress (previously known as 3GSM) in Barcelona, Spain to catch up with a couple of companies and folks in the mobile space as well as to attend the Mobile Monday Peer Awards and participate in the Mobile Jam Session. Should be a lot of fun!

Wow, what a week it has been! The Java Mobile & Embedded Developer Days conference ended last Thursday and I think it is fair to say it was a resounding success.
Many attendees gave us very positive feedback both...
After releasing the Squawk VM as Open Source, Sun announced yesterday that has open sourced the SPOT libraries as well, under GPLv2. SPOTs are small, Java-based, wireless devices developed at Sun Labs. This libraries include the code responsible for wireless communication, sensors control and security at the devices. The news was published in the forum and can be seen the the java.net project website: https://spots.dev.java.net/
A lot has been blogged about fragmentation in the mobile space, but in certain areas, progress seems glacial. Discussions at the MEDD conference suggest the need for a central role to coordinate work on the many facets of fragmentation.
If you think that the most difficult part in writing a Java ME application is make a good looking GUI, you come to the right place. Here is a list of interesting projects that could facilitates you in some way...
In a recent blog entry I asked the question: Do we need a Mobile Developer Alliance? The Java Mobile & Embedded Developer Days ended today (it turned out to be an extremely successful event, more about that in the next blog). As a follow-up a couple of folks are getting together to discuss and brainstorm the topic of why developing and deploying content is so hard, what can be done to improve...
End of one day of the Mobile & Embedded Developer Days, and still one to go, and my expectations are more than met.
This week I drove from San Diego to get to the MEDD conference and used ham radio's APRS to track my position - SunSPOTs could be a really cool addition to this space.
Do not miss the session "Past, Present and Future of JSR 82 (Java Bluetooth APIs)" in Mobile & Embedded Developer Days... a very nice preview here!
Registration for Java Desktop Mobile & Embedded Developer Days January 23-24 in Santa Clara, CA is still open
Java Mobile & Embedded Developer Days attendees will have an opportunity to win a SunSPOTs Java Developer Kit at the conference.
There is a new user group in Silicon Valley and it is not a JUG. It is a GTUG (Google Technology User Group). The Silicon Valley GTUG meets on the first Wednesday of the month at the GooglePlex in Mountain View, California. The topic of the February meeting is the Android Platform with Dick Wall, Java Champion and Google Developer Advocate, as the main speaker. Android code doesn't run on the JVM. So, why am I posting this on java.net? Read the full blog entry for the answer to that question along with more information about this event.

One of my personal goals for the Java Mobile & Embedded Developer Days was to make this conference different from your average developer conference. Different with regard to the focus (deep mobile & embedded Java content), different with regard to the cost (very reasonable), and different with regard to way it is organized (by the community).
Another big different for me was the worldwide...
Because so many community leaders will be in town for the MEDD conference next week, Terrence Barr has reserved a room from 9 AM to 1 PM on Friday January 25th for a discussion of issues facing individual developers. If you have an interest in this aspect of the community, read on.
