Are you joining as a developer or project owner?

I am a project owner.

If developer, what are your areas of expertise?

My expertise is in performance modeling and analysis, scalability and web scale protocol design, and hardware integration

If developer, what is your desired hourly rate (for working evenings and weekends)?

As a consultant, my hourly rate is scaled based on the project and the customer

If you are a project owner, please briefly describe the project and the talent needs?

My current project is the Smart Object API, an Open Source reference implementation of a Semantic Web data model for the Internet of Things. The Smart Object API encapsulates observable, descriptive, and active properties for an Internet representation of a Smart Object or set of Smart Objects with a RESTful interface. It provides for semantic discovery and linking of data from sensors and other data sources to software agents and actuators, at a granular scale. The reference implementation is for instances of Internet of Things multi-protocol gateways (e.g. HTTP-to-CoAP), and cloud instances, including personal sized micro-cloud deployments of Gateway-as-a-Service. The reference implementation is in Python, using rdflib and restlite. I have been working on it for about 6 weeks and have the plumbing for a basic object model and service running. I'm looking for collaborators and sponsors for this project, and hope to get it at least partially funded so I can get some help.


I am a computer architect and consulting engineer working on an Open Source API and multiprotocol gateway stack for the Internet of Things http://www.linked...­
