IOT/M2M - Where Web Hackers meets Industrial and Enterprise

2 3 December 2013

Currently in read only mode, sorry about that, please try again in a few hours.

ThingMonk is an exciting new conference from the team that brought you Monki Gras and The Monktoberfest. We intend to bridge Web Startup Internet of Things communities with their peers in the Industrial Internet/Machine to Machine To Machine space. We will bring elite developers and practitioners together, fostering cross-sector hacks and collaboration.

Day one will be a day of hacking hardware and software for the Internet of Things, kicking off with an introduction to Node.JS development for connected devices. Day two will be be stellar speaker lineup, followed by a splendid dinner and robot cocktail party.

Confirmed speakers include Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino, founder of Goodnight Lamp, Matt Webb, founder of BERG, Ian Skerrett, Marketing Director of the Eclipse Foundation and Nick O’Leary, emerging tech specialist at IBM and creator of the NodeRED integration tool, and Rick Bullotta, CTO ThingWorks.

Inauguration is this year’s theme. We’ll examine how different communities can learn from each other to create great products and user experience. Expect attendees from energy and automotive companies, web firms and major tech vendors. 2014 is looking to be the year when I0T kicks into high gear, after years of promise. Cloud, Big Data and the Open API revolution are all driving the Internet of Things - in areas such as Operational Maintenance. The Internet of Things is finally arriving.

ThinkMonk celebrates both hacker culture and industrial design, web and mobile. We’ll look at the “boring” side of logistics, as well as epic stuff like nodecopters. From agile to big data to machine to machine comms, continuous deployment to Big Data developers are currently building the future we’ve dubbed the Internet of Things. The alpha geeks are already making the future, and ThingMonk wants to pull that future into the present. The future is already here; its just unevenly distributed.

ThingMonk itself will run over 1 day. We don’t allow pitches, we don’t sell speaking slots.
