Embedded industry welcomes the Challenges of the IoT
The IoT Developers Conference will be held in conjunction with the 9th annual Multicore Developers Conference, May 7-8, 2014 in Santa Clara, CA at the Hyatt Regency. Both the Multicore DevCon and IoT DevCon will include two days of technical training, demonstrations, and a networking reception with food and drinks.
John Blyler, co-Chair of the IoT DevCon, and Vice President, Chief Content Officer, Extension Media, commented: “For the better part of two decades, various machine-to-machine methods have provided the ability for machines to use network resources to communicate with a remote application infrastructure for task monitoring and management. The Internet of Things goes well beyond this capability and interconnects virtually unlimited numbers of smart objects, changing the way we interact with our environment.”
This inaugural IoT DevCon aims to educate the industry, with technical sessions and panel discussions related to bringing products to the Internet. It is predominantly targeted at software and system developers, helping them to understand and tackle the challenges of IoT implementations. Leading industry VIPs will provide attendees with authoritative perspectives on how IoT technology will affect business and product development, and look into the future of what IoT will bring. The IoT DevCon also includes IoT-focused exhibits and demos enabling attendees to see IoT technology in action and network with the experts.
“In assembling IoT DevCon, it’s both startling and exciting to reflect on the magnitude and diversity of technologies that co-exist in this domain. To help rein in the vast IoT world, IoT DevCon will focus on technologies ranging from the ultra-low power microcontrollers to the multicore-enabled aggregation hubs combined with the software and security infrastructure required for monitoring and management of the enormous loads of device-generated data,” comments Markus Levy, IoT DevCon co-Chair.
Registration for both events is open now and free for qualified attendees. Imagination Technologies and Wind River have already signed up as Platinum sponsors, and there are still sponsorship and exhibit opportunities available.
