JavaOne 2016 is over, new trip to 2017 has begun

  Currently I'm watching few last JavaOne presentations I've not opportunity so attend, because a lot good ones has been running in parallel. Whole JavaOne 2016 schedule looked mostly like this ... 
... often mention on presentation without any advice ( flip the coin )
Choosing the right session... 
at the end it was mostly about the the flipping the coin. Sadly I got more limitations which disallowed me to stay till the last day and I had to leave a day before ... but never mind I think I've used my limited time as good as I could. At the end it is what counts.
Some friend of mine ... we had a lot fun again... like old times... 

  I met almost all my friends (not all photos are here...), I've not seen for a while . We had a lot of fun and we have discussed a lot about the upcoming future. It got so much inspiration out of all meetings. Looks like Google doesn't offer to make whole animation slightly slower, maybe after watching this for while I'd need both pils ...

  Aside from all amazing meetings I want to mention couple of things about the main reason of my JavaOne 2016 trip. It was the Robo4j.io framework and presenting it at JavaOne4Kids.  
Hardware ready for Robo4j.io presentation
  As you can see from the image we got a lot of hardware as the support of our session but surprisingly it was not enough at the end. Great thing was that attendees used their own imaginations and the came up with incredibly cool robots.
Robo4j powered robot ... sadly not flying ;) this feature is expected ...
  The flow of the presentation was as expected in certain point of time it turned into the "unorganised" chaos with order. This was pretty cool because in such environment, I was able to test whether the Robo4j.io setup is easy enought to make it run pretty fast under the presure. We made it... all was working and I was happy to see on Lego Brick lds -> Robo4.io message... 
Kids are playing with the robot powered by Robo4j.io :: controll phase... 
finally we have made from 15 sets (lego bricks) 9 works and 5 of them where fully running on Robo4j.io. This number may not seems so excited but It is because based on time limitation, chaos that has been running there and some kind of issues with the hardware ;) (at this point I need to mention laptop setups).

   All of those things were not be possible without my co-presented Nikhil ! Thanks man!!!

   One really touching moment at JavaOne 2016 was the Keynote part done by Dr. Anita Sengupta, It was really awesome. In my memories came back images where I was working on SunSPOT project at SunMicrosystem. It was so excited to see how all has been made with Curiosity over the landing sequence. I was really impressed.

simple whole week I was impressed and I was using my limited time as much as I could, I've been attending meetings ::: NetBeans, Java Community Process, Java Hub, Workshops and etc. It was really super busy awesome time I had there and what is more important  : 

"...Robo4j.io framework future is bright..." 

  There is still a lot work ... so move it forward ...
