Workshop: Porting Maker Board Designs to Industrial Grade Systems to Build the Real Internet of Things - Matt Newton, Opto 22
A massive base of existing industrial and commercial equipment is installed across the world today. This equipment contains valuable data that could help improve the environment, increase safety in industrial applications, make businesses more competitive, and create jobs to support the rising data economy. Developers are the key to tapping into this data and making it available for cloud analytics and big data applications.  

In this technical workshop Opto 22 will show you real applications that delivered actual dollars-and-cents value using Internet of Things (IoT0) technologies. Attendees will learn how IoT applications can be quickly prototyped and developed on small maker-board designs and then rapidly scaled up to industrial-grade systems designed to survive the harsh environments found in edge computing applications.

You’ll learn about design considerations for easily accessing siloed sources of data and making it available to cloud-based systems using IoT technology like MQTT, node.js, and Node-RED.
