Internet of Thingies
For better or worse, the Internet of Things has become pervasive in our lives. I am interested in IoT at the component level: how Thingies can be built cheaply and effectively, how they can be made to communicate openly through standards, the interesting work and information these Thingies can provide that allow us to make powerful decisions to shape lives.
I also happen to work for an open source network management platform project, The OpenNMS Group, so I will use OpenNMS to collect and present collected data from these Thingies. I will explore different data collection approaches, make use of different collection and presentation approaches, and cover ways to handle events and make use of alerting and thresholding.
Attendees should have very basic familiarity with electronics, open source systems, and IP protocol communication. I will generalize these areas for the talk.
