Hot spring: overview of IoT events for engineering communities and startups

April and May is a special time for the IoT communities worldwide: a series of events started with IoT Day and will end with IoT developer conferences in the US.

Were you aware that April 9 is traditionally regarded as IoT Day all around the world? IoT Сouncil initiated it in 2010. This year the day was devoted to a meetup "IoT Solutions for Smart Transportation and Logistics. Real Use Cases & Prototypes".

Vitali Mozolevski, the head and co-owner of Promwad Engineering, participated as an expert at a pitch session within this meetup. As a part of this exercise, independent developers and teams presented demo versions and prototypes of their solutions and designs in the field of IoT and hardware. Invited experts gave recommendations on improving those new products, answered questions in the area of customer development, sales, marketing, team building, access to foreign markets, etc.

The organizers of the meetup also invited a well known IoT expert David Hytch, director of consulting company Park Gate and member of the ITS World Congress Program Committee in the United Kingdom. He delivered an online report on the topic "IoT and Public Transport Service".

So what is next? Here is a short list of the upcoming IoT events in May:

  • Santa Clara, US: IoT World Hackathon
    On May 13, Santa Clara hosts IoT World Developer Conference, two-day technical conference for developers, hardware engineers and architects with a hackathon to facilitate problem-solving in agribusiness (#AgTech).

The design of hardware and software for IoT devices is one of our areas of expertise that is why we are closely following the news and events in this area. So stay tuned.
