- IoT Sthlm #30: Scalability & Data
Welcome to an evening of interesting case studies with a focus on data and security in IoT in collaboration with Forefront Consulting. Talks: Processing IoT Data from End to End with MQTT and Apache Kafka – Mic Hussey, Confluent This session discusses end-to-end use cases such as connected cars, smart home or healthcare sensors, where you integrate Internet of Things (IoT) devices with enterprise IT using open source technologies and standards. MQTT is a lightweight messaging protocol for IoT. However, MQTT is not built for high scalability, extended storage or easy integration to legacy systems. Apache Kafka is a highly scalable distributed streaming platform, which ingests, stores, processes and forwards high volumes of data from thousands of IoT devices. This session discusses the Apache Kafka open source ecosystem as a streaming platform to process IoT data. See a live demo of how MQTT brokers like Mosquitto or RabbitMQ integrate with Kafka, and how you can even integrate MQTT clients to Kafka without MQTT Broker. Learn how to analyse the IoT data either natively on Kafka with Kafka Streams/KSQL or on an external big data cluster like Spark, Flink or Elasticsearch leveraging Kafka Connect. Bio: Mic Hussey is a Senior Systems Engineer at Confluent. After gaining his PhD in Civil Engineering, Mic has spent 20 years working as an Architect and Solutions Consultant with messaging and event processing technologies. Kafka and IoT for the retail business – Gustav Norbäcker MQTT is becoming a standard data protocol for how IoT-devices communicates. It's lightweight and easy to use. But what about high scalability and longer term storage? And what happens when we leverage this setup with Kafka, that is much more than just a regular message broker? In this talk, we'll take a look at some interesting cases with IoT-devices and Kafka and how this setup could revolutionize the retail store experience. Bio: Gustav is a senior integration architect with extensive experience from banking and retail applications. In recent years he has specialized in event streaming solutions based on Kafka and applications such as payments, sensor data and fraud detection. Prior to this, Gustav has worked with application modernization and Continuous Delivery for many years, including development process automation and software defined infrastructure. Azure Sphere – Security and Data acquisition in IoT - Peter D Lundgren Security, scalability and time to market are vital factors when launching new connected devices and services. Azure Sphere targets all of these. Peter will demonstrate the components of Azure Sphere, where they fit in to the development of new IoT devices and how to acquire sensor data to the cloud with it. Bio: Peter has been working with embedded systems in industrial applications, consumer products and automotive applications through his carreer that spans over almost 20 years. He has been working with companies like Atlas Copco, Xylem Water Solutions and Leica Geosystems and many more. ----- Drinks and snacks generously provided by Forefront Consulting.

- IoT Sthlm #28: How to connect your thing
This is a meetup on the topic of connectivity, as there are a host of new low-power networking technologies popping up; LoRaWAN, NB-IoT, Sigfox... These networks allow for small amounts of data to be transmitted with little power, meaning that we now can have even smaller sensors running on batteries for even longer. The purpose is for all attendees to learn more about how they can connect their devices, and what technology to choose and why. We welcome everyone, regardless of profession (or not) and interests and try to provide something relevant for all among the presentations. Please get in touch if you want to present something or if you know of something you feel fits the theme. We always love to hear stories about actual products and projects so all meetup members (yes, YOU - no project is too small!) are welcome to share their stories about how they connect their things to the 'net. The meetup is held in English. Talks: Anders Mellbratt - BoatSense Greger Isaksson - LoRaWAN for Makers Rish Chaubhan - The Things Network update ----- Lightning talks/demos: Stuart Mendelsohn Hanna Ericksson, Business Developer @ Watty Mingle ----- *** Please note: No drinks or snacks provided at this meetup as we don't have a sponsor to provide them. (Get in touch if your company or organisation wants to sponsor our next meetup! :) About GOTO10 Goto 10 is Stockholm’s only free starting and meeting place for anyone who wants to develop their internet ideas – with or without a business idea or start-up plans.

- IoT Sthlm #23: IoT Prototyping
Saturday the 20/2 we meet up at THINGS Stockholm, the IoT startup incubator near KTH for some serious (and not so serious) hacking. We are very pleased to announce that Mediatek will sponsor with hardware devices to use during the event. We can look forward to hacking with MediaTek LinkIt ONE and LinkIt Connect 7681 HDKs!!! If you have a project you're working on or just want to finally sit down and start hacking, this is the place for you. You need to know some kind of programming, but not necessarily much about IoT. We will demo how to get started quickly with IoT app development using Evothings Studio in the morning. We'll also have lot of small devices (TI Sensortags, Eddystone devices, et.c.) that you can borrow and try out, but please feel free to bring your own! Evothings AB provides food and drink during the day and the idea is to come and get to know, help and get help from other IoT hackers, developers and tinkerers. We will be able to support and help with questions on BLE, WiFi, Arduino, Cordova apps and JS coding in general. (Please make sure to bring your own laptop and smartphone + any particular development environment)
- IoT Sthlm #22: Jfokus IoT Mixer
Is time for a new meetup! This time it will be co-hosted by Jfokus (http://www.jfokus.se/) at Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre in central Stockholm 18:30 Doors open and mingle 19:00 First talk! ~ 21:00 After the talks we will be able to join the JFokus mingle at the same venue. PRESENTERS: Holly Cummins, IBM Sphere, an Application, a Server, and me Presenting the world's first cuddly, throwable application server!Computers are getting smaller and smaller and cheaper and cheaper.It's possible to sock computers away almost anywhere, and to connect almost anything to the internet. This talk will explore the limits of embeddable hardware and present a getting-started-guide to the internet of things. What's needed? How much does it cost? What's the best way of making an embeddable device talk to the internet? And why would you want a throwable application server? As well as hints and tips, there will be a show-and-tell session (or "demo" if you're discussing with your boss). Johan Janssen, Info Support & Jaap Papavoine, Info Support The Internet of (Lego) Trains We wanted to find out if we could use the same languages and tools on IoT hardware. We used Lego trains and Raspberry Pi?s as a sample project. The Lego trains are equipped with a Raspberry Pi, camera, wireless dongle, infrared transmitter, speaker, RFID reader and battery pack. Next to that we have automated switch tracks and camera's again with the help of Raspberry Pi's. We also build some lightning effects with LEDs controlled by Particle Photon?s. On top of that we also automated a Lego ferris wheel. To control the trains and other parts we built a Java application based on Jersey and Tomcat together with an AngularJS application. This event is hosted by Jfokus who also provide us with drinks and food – Thank you! Jfokus (http://www.jfokus.se/iot) is one of "The 50 Most Important Internet of Things Events in 2016" according to https://medium.com/@jg21/the-50-most-important-internet-of-things-events-in-2016-4a7e332b1577 – if you want to join the conference with a discount, use this link.
