Greater Boston and New England are home to some of the world’s leading IoT entrepreneurs, researchers and thought leaders. Coming together physically helps to create opportunities for collaboration and entrepreneurship. The event features two panels including a low-level protocol and legacy device data management panel as well as a high-level protocol and API development panel. Panelists are from a wide range of developer communities.
“IoT represents a huge opportunity for device builders and developers to create a completely new way for people and businesses to interact with each other, however, we are faced with the two major challenges of security and standardization,” said Doug McNary, CEO of SmartBear. “SmartBear is at the leading edge of the IoT discussions throughout the industry and our software quality tools are ensuring the highest quality and performance in IoT solutions.”
The meetup is co-organized by Chris Rezendes, Founder and Partner at INEX ADVISORS, working with the most innovative companies and people who are shaping the future through their development and deployment of IoT solutions, as well as Lorinda Brandon, Director, API Partner Development at SmartBear.
