Most other artifacts like unit systems, libraries or uom-demos got corresponding tags like "Public Final Draft" or "PFD equivalent" buiding upon the PFD stage JSR. All of them except demos can also be found either on MavenCentral, Bintray JCenter or both.
Leonardo, Werner and Otavio met for an EG F2F in Rio de Janeiro. As the Public Review Ballot of JSR 363 was just about to conclude, Leonardo and Werner gave a Spec Lead presentation to the EC answering questions of EC members prior to their vote.
After the presentation great host TOTVS invited attendees to a ride up Sugarloaf Montain with the cable car, many probably know from the James Bond movie "Moonraker".
Although some EC members had to travel back a bit longer or later than expected due to Blizzard Jason causing major traffic disruption, all but 2 members were able to vote on the Public Review of JSR 363 the following Monday and it passed with only "Yes" votes by all who voted.

On the last day of DevoXX BE 2015 in Antwerp, after many had already seen cutting edge QS and Embedded technologies in James Bond Spectre and a literal hands-on IoT session by Yara and Vinicius, Werner presented The First IoT JSR: Units of Measurement. Unfortunately, JSR 363 EG members and co-speakers Mohamed and Otavio could not make it due to travel budget constraints. While two Cloud/Big Data sessions by both Google and Microsoft as well as a "CSI: Cyber" style security talk by highly acclaimed Security consultant and Hacker Dan Tentler drew many attendees to the other 3 rooms, it still ended up with a decent crowd, exceeding all other JSR 363 related talks of 2015, including a similar DevoXX UK session in London.
For everyone who did not attend the session or wants to watch it again, here's the YouTube recording:
After some EG members met at the end of the previous week for the JCP EC F2F Otavio, Leonardo and Werner demonstrated JSR 363 in two Hackergarten sessions at JavaOne 2015. Running on Java SE 8 on Intel Edison as well as Java ME 8 Embedded on a Freescale board.
Just a day after NASA had unveiled new images and details about Mars, I presented Data Quality and Unit standards from SensorML to ISO 80000 and how JSR 363 can support them at Apache Big Data Europe 2015 in Budapest: Data Quality on Mars - ISO 80000 and other Standards.
It was also a chance to meet EG veteran (initial member of JSR 108 already) and fellow speaker Martin.
Meeting Martin at Apache BigData Europe.
We used the opportunity for a detailed review of Spec, API and TCK.
Following the very fine-grained Optionality and Dependencies of JSR 361 (Java ME Embedded Profile 8) and Profile Sets recommended for it, we introduced a similar, yet far less complex number of profiles to JSR 363.
The current profiles are: - Minimal - Format - Base Quantity - Quantity - SPI - Full
DevoXX UK will be themed "The League of Extraordinary Developers"
JSR 363 will be represented on both by "The Fantastic Four", 4 EG Members, 2 of them Spec Leads.
Local Hero "Duck Asteroid" Chris Senior, Mr. "Flaming Brazilian/Texas BBQ" Leonardo, "Chickenman" Mohamed and "Java Godfather" Werner will be holding 2 sessions on JSR 363 in London and Nuremberg almost simultanously in 2 different languages.
For the 2nd time I was invited to speak at Social Media Week Copenhagen. This time with some live demos it evolved around Quantified Self and how you can share your workouts and other information on social channels.Quantified Self and the Social Internet of Things
