Rodney Landers, Founding Partner – Lab 651

M2M DataSmart and Sprint invite you to participate in a hands-on lab experience that will show you how to use development platforms from multiple vendors, apply sensors to collect real-world analog data, send the information to the cloud over the cellular network and display your results on phones, tablets and back-end server systems.

Participants will be allowed to keep their Development platform of choice as well as their data plan for further experimentation. You will be assisted by two of the leading experts in deployment from concept to productions, Justin Grammens  and Rodney Landers.

This workshop guides programmers and tech professional on how to crowd source libraries for sensor and peripherals using a cloud based IDE. Users will learn how to move data from edge sensor/processor to cloud platform as a service using a cellular module.

Product Managers and Business Development Leaders can come and learn how to build successful business practices and avoiding critical pitfalls of IoT development through hearing from executives with M2M DataSmart and Sprint Corporation around the M2M & IoT space.

What Attendees Will Learn:

  • Rapid prototyping using a cloud based compiler
  • Crowd sourcing libraries to add drivers from common sensors and peripherals
  • Cellular communication to add macro-network
  • Best practices for ‘concept-to-commercial’ development and launch of IoT solutions

Who Should Attend:

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