Interactive TV: introduction to JavaTV and MHP

JavaTV and MHP form the core of the open middleware systems of the modern digital television. During this session we will briefly present the history of those standards and the reasons behind the choice of an open platform. We will present some technical aspects about Digital TV and we will introduce the DTV middleware architecture. Finally, we will dive into the application programming model, introducing Xlets and JavaTV services. We will also try to give an insight on how to create a simple yet effective development and testing environment.

Working between the clouds

Da un po' di tempo a questa parte quando uno sviluppatore software sente la parola "Clouds" non pensa più alle nuovole, ma a...? Durante l'intervento risponderò a questa domanda e mostrerò come una applicazione web sviluppata con Spring Framework, Apache Maven e JPA può essere installata facilmente e (quasi) gratuitamente sulla piattaforma per il cloud computing messa a disposizione da Google. Vedremo poi come applicare i principali pattern relativi alla scalabilità utilizzando gli strumenti messi a disposizione dalla piattaforma di Google.
