OpenIoT Summit

Location: Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego

Register: Registration for OpenIoT Summit is included in your Embedded Linux Conference registration.

Billions of devices, trillions of dollars of opportunity. Building on successive waves of Web, mobile and cloud, powered by a revolution of cheap and powerful hardware that is ever connected, the promise of the Internet of Things has finally arrived. OpenIoT Summit is the first event of its kind - bringing together embedded developers, application developers, systems architects and firmware developers to learn, share and advance the technical work required for the future of IoT. Unlike existing IoT events, the OpenIoT Summit is for technologists and by technologists - and it is the only IoT event focused on the development of IoT solutions.
