MultiTech Unites with Avnet, Aeris and IBM on August 23rd to Host the “IoT – Prototype to Production” Workshop

At the 2016 IoT “Prototype to Production” Workshop developers and engineers will learn how to start the development of IoT commercial solutions using pre-certified hardware platforms and to quickly create new “connected prototypes”.  This workshop guides programmers and tech professionals on how to crowd source libraries for sensor and peripherals using a cloud based IDE. 

Who should attend:

  • Programmers that are familiar with C++ want to make their devices ‘connected’
  • Business Development Managers focusing on IoT, looking to shorten time-to-market
  • Product Managers and Engineers looking to shorten time-to-development for products and services

What attendees will learn:

  • Rapid prototyping using a cloud based compiler
  • Cellular communication to add macro-network
  • Crowd sourcing libraries to add drivers from common sensors and peripherals
  • How to use an application enablement platform to collect and store IoT data, obtain insights from it, and securely publish the data
  • Best practices for “concept-to-commercial” development and launch of loT solutions 

Attendees will receive a MultiConnect® Dragonfly™ embedded cellular programmable SoM and Developer Kit (Part No. MTQ-H5-B01-SP & MTUDK2-ST-CELL) along with 30 days of connectivity to prototype and access to IBM’s Bluemix Platforms (a $250+ Value).

WHEN: August 23, 2016 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM Eastern Time.

LOCATION: IBM Research Triangle Park, 3039 Cornwallis Drive, Raleigh, North Carolina.

REGISTRATION: Closes August 17 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time. Register Now!
