Florence has been the cradle of the Renaissance around the 14th century. It’s amusing to think that another Renaissance happened in Italy several hundred years later, in 2005, this time in the world of connected marchines. The Arduino board was created and ignited an incredibly rich community of makers, developers, and industrials who all cooperate for building the core of the things that surround us.
There are actually many options for building connected solutions today, and Benjamin will discuss the importance of having a vivid open source ecosystem around IoT to ensure that key aspects like developer adoption and interoperability are not left aside.
The talk will feature a cool demonstration of some of the technologies that are available in the Eclipse IoT open-source community
