The best thing about the Eclipse IoT community is that participants are real IoT practitioners and IoT experts. Our face-to-face meetings bring together senior technical leaders who are working on the core technology that is powering the IoT solutions of the present and future.

So we are looking forward to the upcoming Eclipse IoT meetings at EclipseCon Europe. It promises to be a week of learning and discovery for anyone interested in building IoT solutions.

Day 1 – IoT Unconference

Monday, November 2, is the IoT Unconference. The Unconference is split into two parts: 1) an update from each of the IoT projects and learning about potential areas of collaboration, and 2) open discussions and guest speakers. We encourage presentations and topics from outside the Eclipse IoT community and topics relevant to the existing community. There will be lots of discussion about an IoT Server Platform. This is a great opportunity for exploration and discussion on key IoT technical issues.

Day 2 – IoT Day

Tuesday, November 3 is the IoT Day. This is a one-day event for anyone who wants to immerse themselves in understanding how to build IoT solutions. There will be sessions on IoT security, IoT data processing and analytics, open approaches to Smart Home, IoT hardware, and others. There will be speakers from Deutsche Telekom, Bosch, Eurotech, Relayr, Red Hat, and others. A convenient aspect of the IoT Day is that attendees can register for just the one day, and don't need to dedicate an entire week. Of course, ECE attendees can attend any of the IoT Day sessions as well.

Day 3 – IoT Playground

Wednesday, November 4 features the IoT Playground. Here you can see real IoT practitioners show off their work.

More IoT at ECE

IoT is throughout the entire EclipseCon Europe schedule. Two of the keynotes, from Bosch and BMW executives, spotlight each company's strategies for IoT. In addition to the IoT Day, there are sessions on the oneM2M standard from Orange, Building Smart Grids with Eclipse IoT, session on Eclipse Concierge (a super small OSGi runtime for IoT), software updates for IoT, embedded Java for IoT, and what looks to be a great talk on Demystifing the Smartness

If you are interested in learning about IoT and getting in-depth with the Eclipse IoT experts, then EclipseCon Europe is the place for you. Be sure to register today!
