At last, a real IoT tech meetup in Berlin! Here we talk about IoT technologies, case studies of real world deployments, new software, new hardware, new architectures: the whole gamut of IoT technology. If you want to learn more about IoT technologies and discuss them, then this is the place to be.


7pm - Welcome by relayr team

7:10pm - 7:40pm - "Constrained Devices: The Things in IoT” // James Munns - Embedded Systems Engineer -

Defining the term "constrained device" is a necessary prerequisite to a discussion about IoT. This talk will address what a constrained device is, with examples ranging from very constrained embedded devices (ARM Cortex-M, Arduinos, etc.) to lightweight Linux and Linux-style devices (such as OpenWRT devices), single board ARM (such as the Raspberry Pi) or x86 based Linux devices. We will focus on how these devices interact with the world, what it's like to develop with them, and what limitations they have compared to smartphone, laptop, or desktop-style platforms. These topics will be covered at a higher level - don't worry if you have never developed for these platforms - but the talk will still be technical in nature.

7:40pm - 7:50pm - Q&A

7:50pm - 8:20pm - "A brief journey into IoT protocols”// Antonio Almeida - Senior Developer Evangelist -

We'll provide a general overview of IoT protocols: MQTT, CoAP, HTTP and WebSockets.

If you're a developer, you're bound to have worked with some of the above. What problems are we trying to solve by developing new protocols? Why do we need new protocols? Isn't HTTP and everything around it supposed to be the alpha and omega of developing modern applications?

We'll demo the use of both MQTT and CoAP on a ESP8266-based sensor node.

8:20pm - 8:30pm - Q&A

8:30pm - 9pm - "Fishbowl"

Do you have an IoT related topic you like to discuss? Come up on stage and share your experiences and the questions you have. Pick the brain of the audience.

9pm - 10pm - "Networking"

Grab a drink and mingle.
