Networking is all – as I have already said bajillion of times already, and in the spirit of that – I would like to invite you to How.Camp. It is one of the biggest summits of the Bulgarian IT society, organized by Bogomil ‘Bogo’ Shopov, true pioneer in the world of open source and prominent pirate.
It has been a month since I have launched the IoT Monkey blog. It was a crazy month – I have travelled around Europe, attended couple of different events related to the Internet of Things and I have even enrolled myself into the #IOT360 blog contest.
I am digging deeply in the Internet of Things for the past year or so. I can easily call myself a professional with a lot of expertise in the field of technology, talk for hours about sensors, actuators, wires and stuff. But I will not.
As I have been stretching my fingers to polish my #iot360 blog contest essay, I decided to take a little break and share some of my thoughts regarding the last event I have attended. If you have followed, you know that I talk for #IoTSC2014.
The last technical day at the IoTSC2014 was covering topics in the CONSUME area or either said – collecting and parsing sensor data. It was a very exciting day, also including a socially oriented event for dinner.
Last week, as I have been taking my daily dose of sun at one of the panoramic terraces at the Castle of Lerici, I got hit over Twitter by Charalampos Doukas (@BuildingIoT). He suggested that I participate in the IOT360 blog contest and I immediately considered it.
As we have steadily drilled into the Internet of Things, namely in the technologies behind it, we seamlessly entered the third day of IoTSC2014. Dubbed COLLECT, this day was only about ways of getting data back and forth, especially in constrained networks.
We entered seamlessly the second day of IoTSC2014, after being warmed up well the day before. The second day was dubbed CONNECT and, as you can imagine, we had lectures and hands on what is most fundamental in IoT – connecting them devices and ensuring their networking capabilities.
I needed couple of days to get some rest, thus my absence. What I have been resting from was the very intensive past week, during which I have attended a truly scientific summit, called Internet of Things and Smart Cities Ph.D. School 2014 or simply #iotsc2014.
Today I would like to introduce you Andrea Ricci, founder of RELOC – an Italian based startup developing products in the area of wearables and, in general, the Internet of Things. I met him at the Internet of Things and Smart Cities Ph.D school in Lerici, Italy.
