Build Interoperable IoT Products With OCF & IoTivity

Build Interoperable IoT Products With OCF & IoTivity

IoTivity is an open source software framework enabling seamless device-to-device connectivity to address the emerging needs of the Internet of Things. This Workshop will help the participants to understand the fundamentals of IoTivity and how to develop IoT products from scratch using the open source code. Open source IoT framework like IoTivity allows a developer to inherit a robust underlying communications stack and sample application code, and then focus on adding value at the application layer. Open source components drastically reduce the time to market and enable products to be developed in a fraction of the time. A recommended workshop for software developers, startups, students with IT background, System Architects, SMEs and Executives.

Speaker/Instructor:
Balaji VR (Samsung R&D), Pramod HG (Granite River Labs), Madan G (Xtrans Solutions) [Open Source Experts from OCF India Forum]​
