Edge computing

This powerful emerging method is taking the cloud by storm. Edge computing processes data near the source of the data, minimizing the time it takes to send that data back to a data center. It optimizes user experience with just-in-time or real-time analysis of data by making use of the computing power at the edge from mobile devices and the growing mesh of IOT. This shift aids in performance but does it swap performance for security? Or is it what’s needed to make augmented reality a, well, reality? Is this a way to ensure that the networks are self healing, able to respond to issues more quickly, avoid lengthy downtimes? Learn best practices for incorporating edge computing into your work.

Rob Reilly (Rob 'drtorq' Reilly)
This talk will show how to combine Linux, physical computing and practical application into an attention-grabbing, Steampunk-themed, wearable conference badge. I'll discuss motivation, idea generation, research, prototyping, “the build”, challenges and use. I'll wear the badge into the session, then actually use it to run my tech-talk slide presentation.

Drew Moseley (Mender.io)
We will discuss the various malware infecting Linux IoT devices including Mirai, Hajime, and BrickerBot and the vulnerabilities they leverage to enslave or brick connected devices. We will walk the audience through specific vectors they used to exploit devices and cover some basics in security hardening that would have largely protected from many of the widespread malware.

Matt Ellis (TIBCO Software)
By the year 2020, the world will have an estimated 20 billion IoT devices. Storing, processing, reasoning & extracting business value out of this data will require huge computational & financial resources. In this presentation (& demo), we will present an approach that stems from big data and deep learning to making predictions directly on edge devices without the dependency for cloud computing.

Johannes Kristan (Bosch Software Innovations GmbH)
The newly established Eclipse Kuksa project in the Eclipse IoT working group aims at establishing a open connected vehicle ecosystem. the project should be seen as an umbrella that combines existing IoT projects and taylors it to the custom needs of a connect vehicle ecosystem. In this talk we want to introduce the Eclipse Kuksa project. Read more.

Arianna Aondio (Varnish Software Group)
Edge computing is not going to eat up the Cloud. Arianna Aondio, Software engineer and developer of Varnish Cache, believes that the current hype is far from where we really are today. In her talk she will explain that the cloud in some cases, such as in content delivery and some caching scenarios, presides over the Edge and why. Read more.

Sean Dague (IBM)
MQTT is an extremely light weight publish/subscribe protocol, that has taken off quickly in the IoT space. This talk will dive into MQTT the protocol, show how it is used in projects like Home Assistant (open source home automation), Cloud based IoT hubs, and projects based on the ESP8266 platform.
