And there will be robots

Design Patterns for an Internet of Things

Michael Koster ARMN-123 | 9:00am - 9:50am

Design patterns are the building blocks of architecture. Rather than looking at IoT platform architecture with a monolithic approach, we break down architecture into a set of layered design patterns. These design patterns inform architecture choices in embedded software, connectivity, network protocols, application protocols, infrastructure, WSN, and other key choices in IoT architecture. Design patterns allow architecture to adapt to diverse use cases. The talk breaks down IoT architecture into a set of layered design pattern choices. Popular design patterns for each system layer are described and contrasted, and examples are presented to show how different reference architectures can be built and evaluated, based on design pattern thinking. An IoT reference architecture is decomposed into it's constituent design patterns, and alternative design patterns are presented. There is a special focus on technology reuse, interoperability, and information models.

IoT Bubble: Hype or Hope

RJ Mahadev Cisco Systems, Inc.N-123 | 11:40am - 12:00pm

Remember the dotcom bubble? It started with the emergence of the World Wide Web and ended with the collapse of many web-based companies that had reached excessive valuation. Along the way, this era generated massive innovation, economic growth and wealth for a lucky few. It also restructured a number of industries, including Telecoms, Retail and Entertainment. It built the foundation for the connected world we live in today. Companies like Google, Facebook and the dominance of Social Media would not have been possible without the dotcom bubble. The Internet of Things has now been around for a few years and offers real innovations for both consumers and industries but has yet to generate the level of innovation or economic activity of the dotcom era. Has it been more hot air than substance and more importantly how can we drive more economic opportunities? What parallels can we draw from the dotcom era that can help us? This session will provide different viewpoints of the Internet of Things and where it is going.

Machine learning for cancer detection

Abhijit Thatte GEN-124 | 4:00pm - 4:20pm

Hogkin's Lymphoma is one of the common tumors that can be treated effectively if diagnosed in early stages. The presence of Reed Sternberg cells is a strong indicator of Hodkin's Lymphoma. Searching for small number of Reed Sternberg cells in early stage Hogkin's Lymphoma tissue sample is similar to looking for a needle in a haystack. Computer can be trained to recognize Reed Sternberg cells using deep learning techniques to accurately identify Reed Sternberg cells in pathological images. This talk will present the architecture of a deep learning network to identify Reed Sternberg cells, discuss performance numbers and demonstrate examples of identification. The talk will also feature generality of the architecture approach to other types of image segmentation and object recognition for healthcare and other domains.

The Physical Web

Matthew Sibigtroth GoogleE-132 | 2:30pm - 2:50pm

Connected devices are drastically expanding the possibility space of user-machine interactions. Currently, most of these devices require that the user install a native app on their mobile device to allow for such interactivity. As more and more connected devices start to appear around us, installing an app for each one does not scale well. An alternative approach is that these devices simply broadcast a url which users then point their browsers to. The served content can be relevant information or even a direct interface to the device. This Physical Web, if adopted, would allow for on-demand device interactions, all without installing any app whatsoever. This talk will explain the what, why, and how of a proposed open standard Physical Web.

The Web of Things - Leveraging the Web for the Internet of Things

Frank Greco Kaazing CorporationE-135 | 9:00am - 9:50am

The Internet of Things (IoT) is defined by embedded computing devices endowed with cross-network connectivity. This era of computing has huge potential for connected enterprises and consumers, and already has many successful use cases. IoT systems encompass many types of connectivity patterns, proprietary systems and network types. Just as the Web plays a significant role in providing an open, interoperable, easily deployable framework for today’s enterprise systems, it is not surprising the Web will provide similar benefits to IoT. New Web standards have allowed enterprises to extend their internal real-time systems over the firewall in a natural, unimpeded fashion to provide real-time, dynamic information to their customers and partners to ensure consistency and efficiency. These same Web standards can and should be applied to IoT systems to obtain advantages such as global reach, ease of deployment, economies of scale, ease of development, etc. We will discuss this evolution, explore the further impact of the Web on IoT and demonstrate some examples. This will be a joint presentation with Kevin Hoyt who will give the demonstrations.

The content is practical hands on and meant to address real world problems with this kind of data such as messiness in type, content and formats etc.

Multinomial Logistic Regression with Apache Spark

DB Tsai Alpine Data LabsN-124 | 5:00pm - 5:50pm

Logistic Regression can not only be used for modeling binary outcomes but also multinomial outcome with some extension. In this talk, DB will talk about basic idea of binary logistic regression step by step, and then extend to multinomial one. He will show how easy it's with Spark to parallelize this iterative algorithm by utilizing the in-memory RDD cache to scale horizontally (the numbers of training data.) However, there is mathematical limitation on scaling vertically (the numbers of training features) while many recent applications from document classification and computational linguistics are of this type. He will talk about how to address this problem by L-BFGS optimizer instead of Newton optimizer.

A Self-Optimizing IoT at Scale

Julian KeithLoren GEN-121 | 1:30pm - 2:20pm

We don't just want things connected. We want them to be context aware and self-optimizing at the system level--optimized globally, not locally. That's not too hard when we're talking about the IoT in your house. It's much more complicated when we're discussing the IoT in an international airline network, a global supply chain, a nationwide rail network, or a regional healthcare system.

Using real-world example from GE's Industrial Internet, I'll discuss challenges and opportunities around creating a commercial and industrial IoT and making it self-optimizing.

Building Bluetooth low energy devices with Femtoduino

Box2D with SIMD enhancements in JavaScript

Peter Jensen Intel CorporationE-130 | 1:30pm - 2:20pm

We'll present a port of the box2D physics engine to JavaScript using SIMD.JS primitives. We'll compare two different ports; a handwritten port and a compiled port from C/C++ using the Emscripten compiler. The tradeoffs and performance differences between them will be shown. We'll cover the type of original C++ SIMD code that can be compiled by Emscripten. Also, the challenges of vectorizing a 2D physics engine, especially vector math, constraint solvers, and batch creation, and how these are applied to the JavaScript version of box2D is covered. Demos using the box2D engine running in the browsers will be shown. The SIMD.JS is a propose standard for doing SIMD programming in JavaScript. It is being considered for inclusion into revision 7 of the ECMAScript standard. The SIMD.JS primitives have been prototyped in both the Chrome and the Firefox browsers. The demos will be done with these prototypes. Emscripten is a compiler, developed by Mozilla, that compiles LLVM bitcode into JavaScript. It can be used with the clang front end to compile C/C++ to JavaScript. We've modified the Emscripten compiler to support generation of SIMD.JS primitives from SIMD code in the original C/C++ code.

Connected lighting for health

Dale DellArio Ario DesignN-125 | 2:00pm - 2:20pm

Solid state lighting properly designed and controlled could have a strong positive health impact. IoT makes this easier. Researchers have discovered that normal incandescent light is not good for us. Most LED and compact fluorescent lighting is worse. What is needed is control over the color of the light in which we live. Our bodies have evolved expecting blue rich light during the day and little or no light at night. Normal lighting in the evening fools our bodies into acting as if it is still day time when they should be preparing us for sleep. Ario Living is developing products that control the blue content of the light they deliver appropriate to the time of day, from blue rich light they expect to a warm firelight in the evening and night time. The lighting schedule can be controlled and coordinated wirelessly. Our talk will describe why color controlled lighting is important to health and how wireless communication between lamps, the web, and smart devices can facilitate the benefits properly designed solid state lighting can deliver. We will demonstrate one of our color changing lamps and show how scheduling them can make everyday life easier.

Manage Your Mesh

Develop motion sensing applications with sensors in Android Wear

Huan Liu Vimo Labs Inc.N-121 | 11:10am - 11:30am

There had been a proliferation of specialized sensors designed for specialized purposes, such as Fitbit, Fuelband, Moov, Altas for fitness, or SwingByte for golf analysis. However, as commodity wearable devices, such as Android Wear watches, become mainstream, there is a paradigm shift to more software based solutions. Instead of using specialized sensors, most applications can leverage the commodity sensors that already exist on the wearable devices.

This talk gives an introduction of sensor capabilities of Android Wear devices. Then we show several practical applications that utilize the motion sensors on Android Wear devices. One such application is a fitness application that tracks exercise repetitions automatically, and thus tracks calories more accurately based on repetitions and workout intensity. Another application is a professional sport coaching application which advises the user the proper form.

(depending on your audience, this talk can be tailored from beginner to advanced. I can go as deep as sensor algorithms, or stay high level at an introduction level).

Distributed Machine Learning: Architectures to Leverage Streams of Data

Jonathan Dinu Zipfian AcademyN-124 | 4:30pm - 4:50

With the ever increasing amount of data produced by IoT devices, rich experiences are possible that before were only the realm of science fiction. From data driven applications such as Google Now, to smart home automation devices like Nest, we are seeing companies leverage machine learning to deliver personalized products. But with the demand of users for seamless experiences engineers must be able to deliver results seemingly effortlessly and in realtime.

In this talk I will cover different approaches to deploying a production machine learning application on massive amounts of data to deliver insight in near-realtime. By leveraging distributed architectures as well as streaming and online algorithms you can intelligently break up a larger problem to create a responsive data product. But with any approach (streaming or batch) there are always tradeoffs in how you design your system and knowing each's limits is critical.

Real world maps in first person with Oculus Rift

Bo Huang SenseEarth.comN-124 | 11:10am - 11:30am

Maps, traditional or digital, are a blueprint viewing experience, requiring mental capacity to decipher its lines and markings and reinterpretation of its 2D plan to match our 3D surroundings.

In this demo session, employing HMD such as the Oculus Rift, we invite attendees to step into our actual real map location in 3D first person view in virtual reality.

At a practical level, navigate by visual directions instead of deciphering the blueprints on traditional maps. Be empowered to see nearby information visually and the forthcoming structures beyond them. Or soar up and land wayward in distant places.

And what can we do with the whole new multi-level virtual space inside of buildings? The metaverse described by Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash may be far, but we take a first step in this session.

IoT and the New Web

Peter Moskovits KaazingN-121 | 5:00pm - 5:50pm

Much of the early success of the Internet of Things comes from architecture created to support the Web. Unfortunately, we often bringing the confines and limitations of the Web along with us. This session will start by exploring some of the Web architecture barriers keeping us from maximizing the IoT business. From there we will explore event-driven options that are simpler, faster and provide superior scalability. Filled with interactive demonstrations, learn how to empower your IoT devices with the always-on, always-connected Web.

IoT Connectivity, Standards & Architecture

Todd Montgomery KaazingN-121 | 2:30pm - 3:20pm

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services and reactive programming. In this session, we will try to make some sense of this changing landscape, see some hands-on examples or what can be done, and explore the various tradeoffs designers face today.

Securing the Internet of Things

Victor Ake ForgeRockN-121 | 11:10am - 11:30am

We have seen computers and phones been hacked and data been stolen. In the case of the IoT, the data might not be of high volume, but it is nevertheless critical. Think of somebody hacking your things to learn about the temperature patterns to deduce when home is alone, or remotely create condtiions to cause a fire, or somebody causing a car crash, or shuting down your peacemaker. How to identify the users to these devices, user an password? biometric, 2 factor? How do i know it is a legitimate and authorized user?
Learn about the technologies that can be used to identify and protect the devices participating in the Internet of Things.

A Seamless World

Chris Kalaboukis SymbioN-125 | 4:00pm - 4:20pm

Things that are hard to do today will just happen things that are impossible to do today will start happening.
The Internet of Things, Big Data and Automation have begun to make this is a seamless world. Chris will describe a near future world where these three elements seamlessly combine in order to make our lives easier and better. Chris contends that we are slowly moving into a world where our intent is determined AND fulfilled, where we will no longer need to initiate and do, as things will simply be done for us.

Not another *$#@ app: How to avoid IoT fatigue

Ramin Firoozye N-124 | 1:30pm - 2:20pm

Every time we acquire a new connected device we have to download and install a corresponding mobile app to manage and communicate with it. As the world of IoT and connected devices expands this may mean an individual user may well have to download and install tens, hundreds, or thousands of separate apps (and remember which app goes with which device). Given this trajectory, IoT app fatigue may not be too far behind.
In this presentation we will discuss a system where a single app can automatically discover and interact with all recognized nearby devices. Underlying all this is a set of technologies involving Bluetooth LE, Wifi, mobile devices, proximity beacons, device-independent APIs and registries, and ways to dynamically generate native mobile UIs. The end-user experience will be to install a single app and never have to worry about which app to run with which device again.

IOT oversharing or Stop Sending My Stuff to the Cloud!

Ramin Firoozye (2nd Session) N-124 | 4:30pm - 4:50pm

Plug in a connected device and it automatically sends its data to the internet and the cloud. Hooray! Except that now all your data is out on the cloud, whether you like it or not. And you have no idea who has access to it and what they do with it. There are grave privacy and security implications in this 'cloud-first' architecture. Perhaps instead of 'Internet of Things' we should be thinking of 'My Own Inter-connected Things' -- with the cloud used only as a last-resort. In this presentation we will cover a range of system architectures that allow users to maintain local control over their data and allow only what is needed to go on the cloud when it is absolutely necessary to providing a positive user experience. We'll cover alternative designs that offer protection against network congestion or failure and provide better privacy without sacrificing any of the user experience.

Creating a Useful Industrial IoT User Experience

Mary Lukanuski General ElectricN-123 | 4:30pm - 4:50pm

Mary will outline current expectations of Industrial IoT and what teams need to do to create successful applications

Consumerizing Industrial IoT Access Control: Using UMA to Add Privacy and Usability to Strong Security

Eve Maler ForgeRockN-121 | 4:00pm - 4:50pm

The first couple of chapters of authorization and access control are still being written even when it comes to old-fashioned web services and newfangled APIs, never mind the Internet of Things. IoT security has needs that go way beyond the current scope of cloud and mobile challenges: super-loosely coupled, super-strong, and more. Everyone can imagine security-gone-wrong scenarios that have disastrous consequences for industrial IoT use cases. For consumer-facing IoT in healthcare, household appliances, and more, the consequences are different but no less severe, and it adds a killer requirement: privacy. How can we solve the problems of access control and privacy in a unified way, without compromise? And how can we solve the problem NOW? The OAuth-based User-Managed Access (UMA) protocol provides answers.

Mind the Gap: JavaScript for IoT, from Concept to Production

Andy Carle MarvellN-124 | 11:10am - 11:30am

The gap between strong concept and final IoT product is enormous. Critical to the endeavor are tools that help you quickly create dynamic prototypes, and methods for user-driven rapid product iteration. They have very real impacts on your competitiveness in the evolving IoT marketplace.
At the start, carefully choose the platform that can take you straight through the steps of Software Simulation, Hardware Simulation, Prototyping Hardware, and (finally) Custom Hardware. And one that will enable you to iterate more at every step along the path to manufactured IoT product.
We are preaching the religion of JavaScript for IoT development. You need your IoT product to interface with users, sensors, services, and other IoT devices in an efficient, consistent, and extensible way. We developed a new way to use JavaScript for IoT, and we’re running it on a new class of devices.
Necessity is the mother of invention. We developed a new way to use JavaScript for IoT out of the hard lessons learned while creating Kinoma Create, a whole new type of IoT product design tool.
Join this session to get inspired by prototyping and design iteration, and to learn how JavaScript is taking its rightful place as a framework for IoT product development.

Architecting the Next Generation of IoT

Dave Friedman Ayla NetworksN-123 | 9:00am - 9:20am

The Internet of Things is here and the pressure to develop these internet connected products is mounting. As innovative companies like Nest disrupt their respective markets, companies are now feeling the pressure to not only internet enable existing products but to get new innovative products to market as quickly as possible. However, there are a lot of pieces to this puzzle and there are a number of challenges that need to be addressed. Do you build it yourself? How do you architect for unforeseen challenges? Do you know what you don’t know?
This discussion will center on best practices for architecting an IoT solution, key issues to consider as well as a number of pot holes to avoid on the road to achieving complete flexibility and the ability to innovate, learn and adapt.

What is a Thing in the IoT? Aspirations of things narrated by a 'Thing Interpreter'

Pratik Desai Seer Labs Inc.N-125 | 11:40am - 12:00pm

The vision of connecting every networked computer with each other created the Internet we use today from a research project, which got possible because of the open Internet standard and a tangible architecture. In the chaos of buzzwords and marketing campaigns, the Interoperating between connected devices, Things, has been compromise, suffocating the growth of the Internet of Things domain. The interoperability between wearable devices and other IoT components can lead to development of high intelligence applications enabling non-hardware entities to be part of the wearable domain. We propose a semantic web assisted IoT architecture, which implements standard data models described in relationship graphs. The graph based data structure enables reasoning and intelligence at the machine level laying down road for innovations. During the presentation, we will demonstration the Semantic architecture and a Semantic web based Gateway, which implements the prosed architecture.

Everything I learned about IoT I learned from making dice

David Proctor Interface ArtsN-123 | 11:40am - 12:00pm

For my first IoT project I wanted to do something other than a light bulb or pedometer. I chose dice. In the course of this project I used 3 different wireless technologies and a few different cloud and web technologies. I share not only my technical findings but also learnings about the experience design of a non-screen based user interface.

Node.js as an IOT bridge

Eduardo Pelegri-Llopart Progress SoftwareN-124 | 10:40am - 11:00am

In this talk we will show how node's ability to connect events between a multiplicity of sources can be used in IOT applications. We will first show how a node.js layer on a platform like can receive events from iBeacons and interact with web services and with databases like MongoDB. We will then show a simple Node.js local layer that controls behind-the-firewall devices like Philips Hue smartlights. The local layer can run in multiple environments, including single board compulers like a BeagleBlone Black. The two node.js layers can interact and we will show a simple application where lights in an office respond to the arrival and departure of a person. The node.js layer is also a perfect place where to interact with enterprise services and we will provide an overview of how this layer can interact in a bi-directional manner with a Model-driven platform like Progress Rollbase, or how to be presented by the Apache Cordova-based Rollbase Mobile applications. Together node.js provides the glue needed to create very powerful IOT applications.

IOT Landscape, Evolution & Marturity Models: Greatest opportunity to Rework the Internet

Abhishek Sanwal ThinkAlignN-124 | 2:30pm - 3:20pm

IOT Landscape, Evolution & Marturity Models: Greatest opportunity to Rework the Internet. The internet, its backbone and its underlying protocols and standards have taken a few decades to evolve and stabilize. Shift to wireless, mobile access and now smart phones have added a relatively 'flexible' attribute on top of the backbone. Internet of Things or Internet of Everything will bring everything under the sun on the Net, online and having a virtual presence.
10-15 years back, scenarioes and complexities (once only explored by the DoD & cutting edge academisc researchers) broke the performance of existing protocols, will be replicated in commonplace locations everywhere. As a backbone the old internet works fine, but with the extensive variety in last mile/mm fringe elements & scenario patterns that will emerge, we need to reinvent how we connect and coordinate these devices and people, individually and as dynamic collectives; everything from discovery, security, privacy & hand offs to big picture co ordination.
IOT makes one simple promise, making our lives easier & better, at home or work; albeit Activities, behaviors and patterns vary has widely as people, domains and industries, the complexities will increase manifold. What are the solution sets & paradigms?
Here lies the greatest opportunity to rework, and evolve the next generation of Human & Internet - protocols, paradigms and architectures; which were once designed based on how 'computers' talk to each other. Even though we are seeing evolution of 'appliction oriented' networks, they will have to be more 'human-like dynamic' networks that 'absorb' increasingly from human paradigms, as well as from solutions that have evolved in the academic research over 10-15 years and carry over towards the next-gen solutions; be it humans, wearables, devices, mobile, machines (M2M) and industrial internet.
IOT Evolution and Maturity Model will go from simple remote monitoring to self governing dynamically aware entities that work together.

Smart Homes for Seniors

Uday Kiran Agility4LifeN-123 | 4:30pm - 4:50pm

Timing is finally right to build 'smart home' products for seniors. Technology has advanced to the point where we can make powerful devices that can monitor seniors at home unobtrusively and provide the needed care at the right moment, while remain hidden otherwise. Contrast this approach with the in-your-face wearables that may not be suitable for technology-averse seniors. In particular, movements and other habitual behaviors can now be tracked over long periods of time, analyzed using big data technologies to identify meaningful patterns and deviations, compared at a mass scale, allowing us to recognize potential health conditions early and alert the seniors, their families, caregivers and physicians to provide preventative care. We can improve quality of life for seniors, give peace of mind to family members, while decreasing overall health care costs.

Hacking Reality: Browser-Based VR in HTML5

Tony Parisi ViziE-131 | 1:30pm - 2:20pm

Virtual reality hardware systems like Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard and others have made the decades-old vision of low-cost, immersive VR a reality. Millions of units are in production, and projected to be sold in 2015 and beyond. And developers are flocking to this amazing new medium - some to kick the tires, others to maybe get in on the next startup land grab. So far, most of the cool demos are happening in native applications, packaged as big downloads, and built using proprietary software tools.

Cool! But why let Unity and Unreal devs have all the fun? Today’s HTML browser does virtual reality, too. The nightly builds of Firefox and Chrome support stereo 3D rendering of WebGL and CSS3 content, as well as the head tracking APIs and advanced inputs required to create fully immersive VR experiences. In this session we’ll take a look at the state of browser support for VR, and explore the software stacks being used to build applications, including Three.js, Tween.js, the GLAM 3D tag set, and 3D content creation tools.

SkinSampler Technology is a new type of identification device the deliberately makes lots of DNA evidence against people which is wirelessly detectable and uniquely identifiable.

They will be used by the U.S. military, police, women, and children to deter and identify harmful people like terrorists, kidnappers, and rapists.

Mobile phones and other detectors can be networked to find SkinSamplers.
Common people will be offered rewards for making important SkinSampler detections.
SkinSamplers and the detection network will change the nature of society worldwide.

SkinSamplers identify people by DNA and by marking them, their car, parcels, and home for wireless identification.

*** At this point I will do a brief demonstration of SkinSamplers ***

SkinSamplers have 4 features:

1. They take and hold skin (DNA) from anyone they touch just by scratching.
2. They are wirelessly detectable with a unique wireless ID code. They do not use batteries and never run down.
3. They spread from person-to-person and between people, parcels, cars, homes, and hideouts.
4. They can be made as small as a flea and electronically stealthy. Unseen by enemy eyes and enemy detectors while remaining detectable to us.

These features make them ideal for Military intelligence, Police work, and self-defense.
SkinSamplers are low cost and maintenance free.
They change helpless kidnap victims into identification booby-traps.
They can be sprinkled to identify terrorists, insurgent fighters, and criminals.
They can be spread on valuable items to deter and identify thieves.

SkinSampler Technology creates a new IoT identification industry which provides for new products and services, patents, and companies.

These new products include the following:

1. Self-defense clothing and jewelry for women and children.
2. Crime deterring garments for violent parolees.
3. Un-noticeable SkinSamplers for counter terrorism.
4. Military SkinSamplers to identify insurgent networks.
5. SkinSamplers for property protection and thieve identification.
6. Police under-cover SkinSamplers.

The SkinSampler patent will provide market advantages to partners until August of 2023.

Saurabh Gupta Souken, Inc.N-124 | 9:00am - 9:50am

Bitflux ( has been built as an open platform to enable Data Publication (where nodes can publish their data to a common space where it can be queried), Data Subscription (where devices can query this cloud service to get current status or subscribe to various triggers) and Data Security (where certificates are dynamically issued so all data is trusted). Instead of being siloed as a platform for one company's products, Bitflux is an open space for capturing the global state of events generated by the Internet of Things.
It aims to provide simplicity to IoT developers by providing a simple set of REST APIs to interact with the cloud service. In addition Bitflux handles all the details of storing data, querying data, handling triggers, and managing scale. For instance, if you have a sensor recording the temperature at a particular location, and thousands of nodes are interested in that information, then bitflux will dynamically manage scalability concerns.
In this presentation, I’ll demonstrate some code examples and demonstrations.

XMPP - Normalize Internet Of Things

Rikard Strid ClaysterN-123 | 2:00pm - 2:20pm

As a developer you face a myriad of complex questions when entering the world of Internet Of Things. A great challenge is, “How do I connect my awesome IoT solution to the Internet with high security and interoperability, so others can create the next Killer App for my device?”. That’s where XMPP comes into the picture. You can forget about creating a back-end, just use your Google account or download an open source XMPP Server. The API is built into the protocol, which is standardized by IETF, ISO, IEEE, XSF, and IEC to secure the future for your work. I promise you that IoT development has never been easier. XMPP by itself provides you with a lot tools that HTTP lacks that are good to have when you want to make things communicate on the Internet. XMPP makes IoT development easy.

Internet Of Things is not about one single protocol or technology; it is about making them live together. The IoT XMPP initiative is about using a well-known technology that once unified humans to communicate on the Internet, to now give the same advantage for connected things. With XMPP you can normalize every other protocol, like MQTT, CoAP, RESTful, etc. into one common language. No more proprietary Back-End or API when you create the next IoT solution. You will learn how XMPP helps you navigate as pro in the protocol jungle. Every domain has its own protocol war, but to rule real-time communication on the Internet there is only one, and that is XMPP.
