Announcing the 2014 IoT DevCon: The Embedded Industry Embraces the Challenges of the Internet of Things
IoT DevCon To Be Held in Conjunction with Multicore DevCon in Santa Clara
IoT Developers Conference, the premier technical conference and exhibition focused on practical implementations of IoT technologies, announced today that it will be held in conjunction with the 9th annual Multicore Developers Conference. These conferences will take place May 7-8, 2014 in Santa Clara, CA at the Hyatt Regency. At this combined event, both the Multicore DevCon and IoT DevCon will include two days of technical training, demonstrations, and a networking reception with enticing food and drinks.
“For the better part of two decades, various machine-to-machine methods (M2M) have provided the ability for machines to use network resources to communicate with a remote application infrastructure for task monitoring and management,” said John Blyler, co-chair of the IoT DevCon, and Vice President, Chief Content Officer at Extension Media. “The Internet of Things (IoT) goes well beyond this capability and interconnects virtually unlimited numbers of smart objects, changing the way we interact with our environment.”
“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”, said Markus Levy, IoT DevCon co-chair. “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.”
The inaugural IoT DevCon will educate the industry, with technical sessions and panel discussions related to the state-of-the-art and the practical side of bringing products to the Internet. IoT DevCon is geared to help software and system developers understand and tackle the challenges of IoT implementations. Leading industry VIPs will also provide attendees with authoritative perspectives on how IoT technology will affect business and product development, and help look into the future of what IoT will bring. The IoT DevCon is also loaded with IoT-focused exhibits and demos that will provide attendees with the opportunity to see IoT technology in action as well as network with the experts.
IoT DevCon registration, as well as registration for Multicore DevCon, is open and free for qualified attendees. In addition, there are still sponsorship and exhibit opportunities available. Demonstrating their dedication to IoT technology, Imagination Technologies and Wind River have already signed up as Platinum sponsors.
