IBM Bluemix Track at @CloudExpo | #Bluemix #IoT #DevOps #Microservices

1-2-3 IoT! Jumpstart Your IoT Strategy with MobileFirst, Cloud and Cognitive Computing

Join IBM Bluemix on November 4 at 17th Cloud Expo at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, and learn how to jump start your IoT strategy with MobileFirst, cloud and cognitive computing.

MobileFirst IoT Cloud Apps in ACTION! —
3:40 - 4:15 pm

Marek Sadowski & Syed Zaidi

Transform everyday MobileFirst Cloud Apps into IoT solutions in 2.5 seconds. What happens when you combine a SmartPhone, a watch and a sassy robot with one MobileFirst Application? What happens when Watson does it - on Cloud!?! Join this session to see IoT in action. There are over nine billion Internet of Things devices in the world today, and the number is growing. Move your MobileFirst Appdev efforts from boring backlog to IoT-empowered experiences fast. Combine the application development efficiencies of cloud with market-leading mobile development tools and microservices techniques with the cognitive services unlocked by Watson APIs. Build your apps using Node.red for quick development and integrations, Docker for running MobileFirst on IBM Bluemix and check out this demonstration of how you can deliver amazing functionality across a team of robots today, with just one little watch.

IoT in the Cloud Done Right, Now — 4:20 - 4:55 pm
Marek Sadowski & Syed Zaidi

How many connected devices? Nine billion? What happens when a sensor yells 'FIRE'? - on Twitter? In a world full of sensors and tags and devices and beacon, ask yourself this: Where's the value? It's in the data. In the first session we explored how a MobileFirst app quickly becomes an IoT solution. In this next session, we take a deeper look under the covers to see how it works and how you can use the services on IBM Bluemix to deliver each component - Cloud, MobileFirst and Cognitive Insight. The goal? Demonstrate how you can accelerate the delivery of value - faster. Remember, 'Where code goes, where data flows, cognition must follow.' What is the role of social data on the cloud in an IoT use case? How do IBM Cloudant and Watson APIs unlock this value? How can you leverage them today - securely? And why using foundational open technologies within the IBM Cloud, Mobile and IoT help you to extend the value of your IoT solutions for tomorrow.

Did Someone Say Open SDK? — 5:00 - 5:35 pm
Marek Sadowski & Syed Zaidi

In this third session we dive deeper into the role of MobileFirst on Cloud in accelerating your ability to leverage IoT. Application development is where the rubber hits the road. In today's app-centric world, the user experience is what matters. This requires easy-to-use apps based on best-of-breed design principles. It requires a complex set of features delivered effortlessly to the end user. All too often teams get mired down in Web vs.- Mobile, Native vs Hybrid, phones vs wearables. If IoT brings together the best of Cloud, Mobile and Cognitive, how do today's appdev teams deliver on all of the above quickly? Open MobileFirst SDK for C#, API management tools and open industry-specific ready-apps available from IBM and ready to use on Bluemix, today. IoT is a team sport and in this demo see how one Enterprise C# developer can get up and running in a native app world - as easy as 1-2-3.

Speaker Bios
Marek Sadowski is an IBM MobileFirst developer advocate, IoT & robotics expert and an entrepreneur. Being a graduate from the International Space University, Marek pioneered in research on an HMD for the photorealistic virtual reality system to control robots on Mars in NASA Ames in 1999. On a European national TV channel Marek hosted a first season of the educational program "Why this?". As a vice president of the Polish Astronautics Society he organized 7 national robotics competitions for high school students.

While accumulating the business know-how and almost 20 year experience in consulting for some of the largest enterprises in Europe, Middle East and Africa as a certified engineer and an IBM Client IT Architect in mobile, web, Java and integration technologies - he founded Robotics Inventions ("RI") to deliver robotics solutions and services for space, military, and industrial sectors. For the achievements in RI, he received the Polish Market Innovation Leader 2013 award by the Legal Newspaper, and the Microenterprise 2013 in "Progres" class by Citi Bank. Marek succeeded in finding a Business Angel, and obtaining several million EU grants for R&D for home and industrial robots, as well as for a robot swarm control system. After licensing RI blue prints of a home robot for production to a large European consumer goods producer, he decided to build RI consumer brand

and to start a campaign on Kickstarter with a Lego Friendly robot vacuum managed with an AppleWatch as an IoT unit over the Internet. And thus Marek expanded RI to San Francisco Bay Area.  Since moving from Europe to Silicon Valley in 2014 he rejoined IBM as a MobileFirst developer advocate to bring fruits of Apple - IBM alliance to industry and startups.

Syed Zaidi is an IBM Bluemix evangelist and an IoT guru who hacks IBM Bluemix cloud to run the code for Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and various sensors, and .NET things.

For the Past Four Years @CloudExpo Has Been a Must-Attend Event for MetraTech/Ericsson
This week, the team assembled in NYC for @Cloud Expo 2015 and @ThingsExpo 2015. For the past four years, this has been a must-attend event for MetraTech. We were happy to once again join industry visionaries, colleagues, customers and even competitors to share and explore the ways in which the Internet of Things (IoT) will impact our industry. Over the course of the show, we discussed the types of challenges we will collectively need to solve to capitalize on the opportunity IoT presents. [continued]

Containers & Microservices Expo To Be Colocated with Cloud Expo Silicon Valley, November 3-5, 2015 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA
SYS-CON Events announced on June 9, 2015 at the Javits Center that the 2nd "Containers & Microservices Conference" will take place November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA, and the "Third Containers & Microservices Conference" will take place June 7-9, 2016, at Javits Center in New York City.

Containers and microservices have become topics of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities.

Microservices focuses on the business and technology of the software architecture design pattern, in which complex applications are composed of small, independent processes communicating with each other using language-agnostic APIs.

Containers are not being considered for the first time by the cloud community, but a current era of re-consideration has pushed them to the top of the cloud agenda.

Rather than just stuff an OS into a container, for example, developers and deployers should consider a spectrum of microservices and what they can do.
