Day 1

23 January 2017

Developing for the IoT

“What’s the best way to build “Internet of Things software” that could do anything from control home appliances remotely, to inform an aero-engine manufacturer that one of its engines somewhere in the world needs servicing, to gather meteorological data from sensors to produce a weather forecast? What skills are needed to do so? Where do you even begin?” – CIO.com

Day One of the Developing for the IoT agenda will explore the evolving technology available to developers looking to create IoT products and software. Reviewing platforms and frameworks for development, hardware and connectivity options and also the tools needed to create products and applications for the IoT.

View Full Info

Voice control is breaking into the smart home space in a big way. Using voice as a device and application interface enables customers to interact with smart home devices in a more intuitive way and indicates the beginning of the post-app era of consumer engagement. But what are the limits, if any, to a product that provides a hands-free interface to the smart home, voice-controlled search, and now voice-controlled banking? This keynote session addresses what role voice control will play as the community of partners grows and use cases expand across traditionally separate verticals.
