Add to calendar

Everyone is drawn to the cool new ways to connect devices to the Internet and make life easier—and a little more futuristic. But, do you know that IoT has been around since the past century? Theresa Lanowitz is one of the early advocates of what is now IoT and is thrilled that the pace of acceptance is accelerating—rapidly. This level of acceptance and understanding of IoT was not always the case. Theresa shares the early ideas, vision, and concepts of the Sun Jini project, the pre-cursor to IoT, and offers advice for developers and testers on how to succeed with IoT. Whether you are part of the industrial, consumer, or enterprise IoT, you face challenges of how to ensure your software is fast enough, safe enough, and secure enough to deliver the desired outcome. Uncover the artifacts from 1999 and discover why 2017 is the year that IoT becomes more science than fiction.
