EclipseCon 2013 is here, and I’m in Boston with the great folks from around the community this week.
There’s a LOT of content around the machine-to-machine space this year, and growing interest in how to use instrumented devices with an embedded runtime with lightweight messaging. If you’ve not been following the progress of the M2M community at Eclipse, we now have an M2M portal, along with nice pages for each of the three associated projects Koneki, Mihini, and Paho.
Almost the first thing I saw when I walked in yesterday was my buddy Benjamin Cabé assembling a bunch of electronics kits (Raspberry Pis and Arduino Unos) for today’s M2M tutorial which will use Eclipse Koneki and Mihini. This will be the first opportunity for many folks to play with the new Mihini runtime. Later this evening, we’ll have the chance to run a hackathon with things like Raspberry Pi and Orion and others parts as an extended Birds of a Feather.
What are some of the other M2M sessions to look out for?
- learn about building an open M2M community
- hear about how a 3D printer was hooked up to the web using MQTT
- listen to what Hitachi have been doing with M2M gateways
- understand how Koneki and Mihini can build M2M applications
- the TCF BoF may be of interest now that it can debug Raspberry Pi
- the IWG BoF will include folks from the M2M community
Oh, and if you are interested in MQTT, come and find me for some MQTT Inside stickers that you can use with your own hardware projects :-)
