I just received my CEJUG T-Shirt.
a Java logo in the arm
and CEJUG website in the back
You can buy yours at CEJUG Store.
Thank you Rafael!

This is an opportunity for students to develop self confidence and experience entrepreneurship at an early stage in their careers, to add practical experience to the theoretical skills and to provide private business with state-of-the-art knowledge from universities.
For my big surprise I found that they have also have an machine with Opensolaris installed for testing they softwares in multiples platforms. Very cool! If they continue to study and improve their skills in Opensolaris they can have an very special differential and goods business opportunities.
Very cool, keep going guys! :D
It’s one important step in the recognition of the Python language and certainly will bring benefits for the Python Community. Some things I’d like to see:
It’s really a great moment for Sun and Open and Free Software. I’m happy with all that? You can bet on it. :D
More books to my shelf.
First I’ll take a look … JavaFX, of course. :)
ps: The JavaFX book I win as a prize for naming the SDN Channel podcast, CampusCast. Thanks Edu that bring it to me from USA. ;)
For a while I’m thinking about this hardware project idea and now I’m opening here to get some opinions. After that maybe I’ll submit it for the Sun SPOT Open Grant Program.
What is Walker Sphere? Walker Sphere is a project to made an robot capable with a diferent aproach, without heels, mats, propellers or wings. The main idea is to move only changing its center of gravity.
How change its center of gravity?
It’s a sphere
with some compartments
and a Sun Spot.
One compartment is filled with a liquid. The liquid is pumped to another compartment and so the compartment got heavier and the sphere moves towards its direction.
Why a sphere? We can distribute the mass uniformly in a sphere and it’s shapes make it easier to roll. A sphere can encapsulates all components and protect them from the outside world and at the same time all sensors can work, especially using some transparent material for the bark.
Why Sun Spot? The Sun Spot have some advantages that fits perfectly in this project:
It will be free? Yes. I’d like to know more about open and free licenses for hardware projects.
How to pump the liquid into the compartments? I don’t know. Have you some good idea?
Some random ideas:
I’m open for ideas, critics and suggestions. ;)
