JavaOne4Kids is focused on promoting technology to next generation of developers; kids who want to learn more about programming, robotics and engineering.
Oracle Academy collaborated with Devoxx4Kids to bring kids content that includes several topics like Minecraft Modding, Java, Python, Scratch, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, NAO robot, LEGO Mindstorms, Greenfoot, Alice, and others at JavaOne 2015.
The attendance grew 3x from last year and it was certainly very heartening to see this. If you live in or around the San Francisco Bay Area and want a more continued experience through out the year, then it’s highly recommend you join meetup.com/Devoxx4Kids-BayArea/.
Here are some statistics from the event:

A picture is worth a thousand words, and a video is worth a million words. Check out kids in action from the event, and then subsequently in JavaOne Community Keynote:
It takes a village to run an event like this. This was certainly not possible without the impeccable support from Oracle team, instructors, and volunteers who helped us through out the event!
Do we expect these kids to come back to again next year? Yes, absolutely!
At least, 88% of them want to come back 🙂
