Another conference inspired by a tweet. Who am I to argue with clients telling me to run a conference in one of the most interesting spaces in tech.
ThingMonk is a new conference from the RedMonk stable, on December 3rd, 2013 at Shoreditch Works Village Hall, a popup event space at one of London’s premier addresses, Hoxton Square. I want to to bridge Web Startup Internet of Things communities with their peers in the Industrial Internet/Machine to Machine space.
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 ThingWorx.
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 not quite firing. Cloud, Big Data and the Open API revolution are all driving the Internet of Things – in areas such as Operational Maintenance.
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.
