IoT & Hardware
Tuesday, February 8, 2022
The explosion of IoT devices and the time series data they generate has accelerated the demand for specialized IoT platforms. By 2025, there’s projected to be ~60 billion connected devices around the world. The hurdles for businesses to overcome in the next few years will be centered around collecting, munging, and storing it all from the many sources it comes from, how to manage that storage, and how to analyze it most efficiently.
In this session Sam Dillard will cover why a time series data platform should be used to meet IoT scale and interoperability needs. He will walk through the core concepts of time series databases, share use cases and give us an overview of the InfluxDB platform.
KEYNOTE (ProductWorld) Cisco Meraki -- How to survive Chipmaggedon: Design and Development of “The New Normal”Join on Hopin
You can’t always get what you want. Right now you can’t seem to get anything at all. Whether you’re sitting in an empty warehouse, staring at a smoking proto board and wondering how long it will take to get a new one, or clicking obsessively hoping your new oven will ship, “Chipmaggedon” has landed with profound impact on how you design, develop, and consume.
How do you protect your product in a global crisis? How do you invest in growth and innovation when you’re constantly playing defense? What’s the trick to get hardware designers, software developers, and supply chain managers together and rowing in the same direction?Join Morgan Teachworth, Vice President of Hardware Engineering and Supply Chain for Cisco Meraki, as he discusses what sparked the global chip crisis and recommends how shifts in design and development methodologies can bring communities together to combat supply chain challenges and survive the end of “Chipmaggedon.”

The Jamstack movement has forever changed the trajectory of the web by decoupling backend and frontend technologies. Today, the Jamstack provides nearly limitless choices to developers designing the best customer experiences in web applications. Netlify’s platform unites the Jamstack ecosystem of modern web technologies with a great developer experience, helping developers create dynamic, scalable, secure apps..
To deliver the speed and agility that developers need when moving to a modern Jamstack architecture, Netlify continues to expand its platform to provide a workflow and productivity that natively integrates with every major web framework, API and developer tool. In this session, Matt will introduce the concepts of this architecture, highlight how to best utilize this integrated platform, and unveil how these workflows can unleash developer productivity for your team.
As data drives new and evolving IoT opportunities across all segments of the market, the role of the developer becomes increasingly important in being able to utilize existing tools to drive new ways to create Edge AI solutions. However, solving for Edge AI can be a complex design and development process as it requires determining the right selection of sensors, hardware, deep learning frameworks, or deciding how to deploy the unique use case.
By democratizing access to AI and simplifying development, organizations can enable their developers to quickly experiment with different algorithms, processors and optimization techniques or prototype and customize without having to spend weeks obtaining and setting up development boards. In this session, Bill will discuss how organizations can achieve this and empower their developers to build innovative Edge AI solutions – solutions that will improve lives and transform industries.
With so many existing and emerging wireless technologies - 5G, eSIM /eUICC, and NB-IoT, one of the key decisions you need to make as an IoT product builder is - Which of these technologies are right for your current IoT initiatives? There are many (almost an overwhelming amount of) considerations - cost, coverage, bandwidth, impact on battery life, module availability, operational overhead and the list goes on. And you have many industry players steering you one way or another. This session will give you the guidance you need on how to prioritize these considerations and ultimately make a decision that will ensure a successful product lifecycle.
