Apache OpenWhisk is an incubating project that has a couple of presentations on the Apachecon schedule. Here we talk to Carlos Santana about OpenWhisk, his upcoming presentation and whether he can play guitar!
This year at ApacheCon we’re adding a new component to the conference – Apache:IoT – an event about the Internet Of Things projects at Apache. Here to talk with us about this event is Roman Shaposhnik.
Frontends for IoT Systems Built with Apache Flex – Christofer Dutz
I want to introduce you to my little cyborg. It’s based on a Rapiro robot, but filled with an Arduino for controlling it’s movement, an Intel Edison for higher brain functions and stuff like voice control, video object detection and much more. With all of it’s different types sensors and actors this makes it a perfekt simulation of an IoT backend which I will use to demonstrate how easy it is to create a perfect looking and working frontend to your IoT system with Apache Flex.
In this Talk I will be focussing on both the server-side and the client-side. BlazeDS’ Spring-Boot-Starter it has become extremely easy to setup the server-side. I will be explaining the steps needed to open your Spring services to be called by a Flex client as well as enabling publish-subscribe push communication from the server. On the client-side I will be demonstrating the counterpart of this communication.
CPUs that cost thousands a decade ago are now cost a few euros. Cheaper faster easier to manufacture electronics has lowered barriers to entry so that people with minimal technical knowledge can create special purpose computers capable of changing the world. Open Source Hardware is in autonomous drones, 3D printers, DNA replicators, satellites, city-wide sensor networks, smart houses and wearable computers. In this talk I’ll take you through what Open Source Hardware is and isn’t, OSHW licensing, recent advances in OSHW, show a range of projects and demonstrate what’s possible now, warn about some the threats (lack of protocol standards and vendor lock in to name two) that may hinder the growth of Open Source Hardware and the latest in low power wide area networks, the new bottom up free to use internet for devices.
