Complementary to the Yaler relay service we offer the following workshops, as a general introduction to connected products.
We've been developing and actively monitoring technology in the field for years - from enterprise mobile applications to the Internet of Things. By presenting examples from various industries and introducing a simple Internet of Things reference model, we facilitate a new perspective on what becomes possible once physical products get an API.
Enterprise R&D lead or technical product lead, if possible together with your in-house IP expert, ideally less than 10 people.
|08:00||Mutual introduction (30 min)|
|08:30||Connected products (90 min)|
|10:00||Reference model (15 min)|
|10:15||Coffee break (15 min)|
|10:30||Discussion (90 min)|
The "bottom-up" approach of the Do it Yourself (DIY) and Maker movement becomes increasingly important for innovation in the enterprise. Get hands-on experience with Arduino controllers, sensors and actuators. Learn how to prototype Internet-connected products. If you prefer Linux or .NET, the workshop material is also available for BeagleBone or Netduino hardware.
Participants should bring a computer to install and run the development tools. Basic programming skills are an advantage but not required. If the workshop is held at your venue, we need a projector, a whiteboard and a robust Internet connection with DHCP.
Everybody, from students to enterprise R&D, ideally around 10 participants.
