Eclipse IoT Day in San Jose

Thursday, January 26, 2017 - 13:59 by Anonymous (not verified)


We are planning another Eclipse IoT Day, this time in San Jose, CA on March 20. It will be co-located with Eclipse Converge and Devoxx US.

In San Jose, the schedule will be highlighting many of the new projects and participants in the Eclipse IoT community, including:

  • A session on Eclipse hawkBit from Michael Hirsch from Bosch SI. hawkBit solves the problem of how to do a software update to hundreds of thousands of IoT devices. This is a critical feature for IoT at scale and something hawkBit uniquely solves.
  • Samsung’s Dan Gross will be talking about the Samsung Artik platform and how Samsung is embracing open source in their platform.
  • Laurent Lagosanto from MicroEJ will talk about using Java for small IoT devices and how Eclipse Edje is providing the framework and apis to make Java portable across different MCU and hardware platforms.
  • Eclipse ioFog is a new project led by Kilton Hopkins from IOTRACKS. A lot of people are talking about Fog computing but I am excited to have Kilton talk about how Eclipse ioFog implements fog computing.

Industrial IoT is where the serious and significant IoT use cases can be found.  For this reason, I am thrilled we have a number of sessions focused on Industrial IoT, including:

  • An introduction to Eclipse Milo, which is an implementation of OPC-UA. Milo also just had it’s first release.
  • Intel will be talking about their work on industrial use cases with Eclipse Kura and Intel Data Analytics Acceleration. Analytics at the edge is a key trend in 2017.
  • There will also be a presentation on how Eclipse Kura acts as the gateway for Industry 4.0 use cases.

We will also have session on Eclipse Smarthome and IoT Cloud Platforms, featuring Eclipse Kapua.

If you are interested in IoT, open source and the Eclipse IoT community, then I hope you will attend. It will be a great opportunity to meet some of the IoT experts and learn about the Eclipse IoT technology.  The cost to register is $275. I hope you register.

We will also be hosting an Eclipse IoT Working Group meeting the next day. This will be a more technical meeting that focuses on the specific projects. This will be an open meeting so feel free to attend.
