Internet of Things Developers Conference to Focus on Practical Solutions to IoT Design Challenges

Elite Conference Returns to Target Valuable IoT Applications Ranging from Embedded to the Cloud

IoT DevCon 2015


EL DORADO HILLS, Calif. & SAN FRANCISCO--IoT Developers Conference, the only technical conference and exhibition focused on practical implementations of IoT technologies, will take place May 6-7, 2015 in Santa Clara, Calif., at the Hyatt Regency. Building on its earlier successes, the IoT DevCon will once again join forces with the Multicore DevCon and will include two days of technical training, hands-on demonstrations, and a friendly and constructive environment for networking.

"The number of Internet of Things applications is exploding, shattering expectations and estimates, and challenging engineers and management to create products that rise above the hype to generate real value. To meet the forecasts of 10 to 20 billion nodes in the next several years, makers need to understand and address the obstacles," said Chris Ciufo, co-chair of the IoT DevCon, and editor-in-chief at Extension Media. "This conference's focus on real solutions will benefit attendees from all across the globe and spectrum of industries, whether they are for designing IoT nodes, optimizing hubs, managing security and analysis of big data in the cloud, or any other IoT-related applications."

"Given the value and potential of the IoT, the first IoT DevCon was a smashing success, attracting more than 1300 registered attendees - more than half of whom stayed through the closing panel, which needed extra time to respond to the enthusiastic participation," said Markus Levy, IoT DevCon co-chair. "To streamline the vast IoT domain for developers, engineers and makers, the 2015 IoT DevCon will focus on technologies from ultra-low power microcontrollers to multicore-enabled aggregation hubs, combined with the software and security infrastructure required to monitor and manage the enormous loads of device-generated data."

The 2nd annual IoT DevCon will educate the industry, delivering expert-led technical sessions and panel discussions related to the state-of-the-art and the practical side of connecting products to the Internet. IoT DevCon is geared to providing software and system developers the resources to understand and tackle the complex challenges of IoT implementations. Leading industry VIPs and luminaries will also provide attendees with authoritative perspectives on how IoT technology will affect business and product development, while illuminating the future of what IoT will bring. The IoT DevCon is also loaded with IoT-focused exhibits and hands-on demos that will provide attendees with the opportunity to see IoT technology in action as well as interact and network with specialists and pioneers.

The call for presentations for IoT DevCon, as well as Multicore DevCon, is open and can be accessed at each conference's website. In addition, valuable sponsorship and exhibit opportunities are available. Demonstrating their dedication to IoT Technology, 2014 sponsors included Andes Technology, Freescale, Green Hills Software, Imagination Technologies, Intel, McAfee, Mentor Graphics, Microchip, Oracle, Wind River, and many other exhibitors and presenters.
