Hack the Eclipse IoT Open Testbeds at EclipseCon Europe

By now you are probably pretty aware that EclipseCon Europe, coming in just a few weeks in Ludwigsburg, Germany, Oct 22-25, will feature All Things IoT!

But wait, there’s more! We will use the opportunity of having a lot of people from the Eclipse IoT community in the same location to spend some time hacking the Open IoT Testbeds on Wednesday, October 24.

“What can I expect from the Testbed Hackday?”

As we will be unveiling a new testbed focusing on Production Performance Management of industrial equipment, and with the Asset Tracking Management testbed well on its way, there will be many people who have been working on these testbeds attending the hack day.

They will be available all day to discuss (and experiment live!) how to extend them, and of course ready to show you how they are built.

“Why should I attend?”

  • If your company is creating IoT products that you would like to integrate with the existing testbeds,
  • If you are involved in an Eclipse or Eclipse IoT project and would like to see how your project can get involved complement the solutions already demonstrated in the existing testbeds,
  • You want to experiment with the actual hardware that the testbeds are featuring,
  • You are interested in starting a new testbed and would like to gauge the interest of the community and brainstorm some ideas face-to-face.

Please let me know if you plan on attending! I think the Open IoT Testbeds are a great opportunity for people and companies to collaborate on real use cases, and to demonstrate by example how open source, complemented by a strong commercial ecosystem, can jump-start the development of IoT solutions.

I really think the Open IoT Testbeds are a great opportunity for people and companies to collaborate on real use cases, and to demonstrate by example how open source, complemented by a strong commercial ecosystem, can jump-start the development of IoT solutions. If you share this conviction, you really don’t want to miss the hack day… and all the other days of EclipseCon Europe!
