  • Level up Your Java Performance with TornadoVM

    GPUs, FPGAs, or multi-core CPUs are present in almost every computing system today. These devices help increase performance and run more efficient workloads, but most frameworks are built on C or C++ only. At QCon Plus, Juan Fumero spoke about TornadoVM, a high-performance computing platform for the JVM, allowing to offload, at runtime, Java code to run on heterogeneous hardware accelerators.

  • Web of Things over IoT and Its Applications

    We all are more or less familiar with the term IoT, but what is WoT and how does IoT relate to WoT? How much is WoT required in our society? What are the possible applications of WoT? Are there any applications enabling WoT actually in the market? In this article, we will try to explore the answers to these questions.

  • TornadoVM: Accelerating Java with GPUs and FPGAs

    The proliferation of heterogeneous hardware represents a problem for programming languages such as Java that target CPUs. TornadoVM extends the Graal JIT compiler to take advantage of GPUs & FPGAs and provides a flexible, high-level model whilst still enabling high performance and features such as live task migration.

  • The Why, How, and What of Three Industry-Oriented IoT Projects: Highlights from WebExpo 2019

    Tomáš Morava, CFO and co-founder at Hardwario, recently presented at WebExpo 2019 in Prague three practical, industry-oriented applications of IoT in the automotive and agriculture sectors. Morava illustrated at length in an interview with InfoQ how deploying the Internet of Things in the industry need not be complicated nor expensive.

  • Open Source as a Driver of Internet of Things

    We have advanced from mainframes to workstations, to client-server, to grid computing, to cloud computing and the next step is the Internet of Things. Smart devices, active devices, all around the world are connected, generating huge amounts of data and reacting to commands from central or distributed authorities. And it seems that the ideas of open source now can be applied to hardware ...

  • No Starch Press' Python Playground Review and Q&A with the Author

    No Starch Press’ Python Playground provides a fairly large and varied collection of projects that aim to show how Python can be used in such different contexts as creating ASCII art, birds simulation, interfacing to Raspberry Pi, and more. InfoQ has spoken to the book’s author, Mahesh Venkitachalam.

  • Yes, Hardware Can Be Agile!

    “You can’t do 2-week iterations with hardware!” This is the first thing you’ll hear when talk turns to Agile methods in hardware-software product development. A mix of existing robust hardware development ideas, plus a few newly taken from Agile software are being used now by real teams, even to get around - or through - the challenge of doing fast iterations.
