The Line-up

Scott Mordue, Head of IoT Dev Marketing – Intel

As one of the leading companies in IoT development, Intel will be introducing their Edison technology; a hardware and software platform that, when combined with sensors and your imagination, empowers you to invent new Internet-enabled products and solutions.

This talk will include how to get started with using Edison as well as how you can use is to prototype your IoT product.

Wojtek Siudzinski, Senior Software Engineer – Particle

Particle make tools for engineers and designers to create amazing new experiences through internet-connected hardware. They offer a suite of hardware and software tools to help you prototype, scale, and manage your Internet of Things products. Their last Kickstarter campaign almost raised $600,000.

This talk will cover how to take your Internet connected product from a breadboard to manufacturing with Photon, Electron and Particle Cloud.

Pal Kastnes, Technical Marketing Manager – Nordic Semiconductor

Nordic Semiconductor provide world class solutions for wireless and portable technologies using ultra low power wireless chips that can run for a long time from small power sources, like watch batteries.

This talk will look at accelerating prototyping with existing software examples and available software drivers as well as how to take advantage of existing kits and modules on the hardware side.
