18:15 - 18:20 WELCOME

Open Forum; members are invited to make announcements, share news, seek project collaborators, promote their IoT events, and request topics for future Meetups.

18:30 - 18:50 Ian Massingham ( (Amazon AWS (

Customers have long been building IoT products, services & applications in the Cloud because it offers practically unlimited capacity, unrivalled agility, and a capex free commercial model, but what are the solutions for applications that latency sensitive, or suffer from intermittent or interrupted connectivity? Join AWS Chief Evangelist & IoT Specialist, Ian Massingham, and learn about solutions for core/edge IoT application delivery with AWS, and how building on Cloud services designed specifically for IoT applications can accelerate product and service development, improve security, and allow you to offload more of your heavy lifting to the Cloud.

18:50 - 19.10 Euan Mackenzie ( (1partCarbon (

Building out an innovative IoT product for the mass market presents an interesting range of challenges, particularly for a software development company with little experience in the area. Euan will tell the story behind Trakz, the world’s first flexible smart ‘phone’ for animals from commission to delivery; the challenges, the technical hurdles and the costs involved with getting a connected device to market. He'll also talk about the upside of getting it right, and will share his list of all the things he's glad he didn’t know beforehand!

19:10 - 19:30 Thibaut Rouffineau ( (

Thibaut will talk about the "Internet of Revenue Generating Things", because it is important for both makers and enterprises to consider how value can be created from connected technology. Two of the primary issues faced by organisations before they deploy an IoT strategy are the lack of standards and security. Many understand the potential of the "Internet of Revenue Generating Things", but fear that they will end up with the "Internet of Dust Covered Things" that results in wasted capital expenditure and an organisation riddled with viruses! Thibaut's talk will aim to put your collective minds at ease by exploring various options and guiding you along the way.
19:30 -19:50 DISCUSSION & PANEL Q&A

19:50 - 21:00 NETWORKING & DRINKS
