Speaking at Open Source Bridge
I’ll be presenting a talk at the Open Source Bridge conference in Portland sometime between June 1st and 4th. My talk will be about a wireless temperature sensor and control system that I built using some dusty electronics knowledge and a truckload of open source (mostly Apache stuff) Java software. The wireless aspect of the hardware is provided by XBee modules. The main things that I will be talking about on the software side are Apache Mina and Apache Felix. Mina provides a nice library for handling custom protocol that XBee modules communicate with while Felix provides a nice base platform for the application to run on.
