Connected Houses [hands on]

Connected houses

The workshop will let you explore all IoT tools and build step-by-step a project called ‘The-connected-houses’. This project consists of two parts, a first part will lead you to build a prototype in line with a pre-defined scenario, the second part will allow participants to build additional features which they will define in a so-called ‘Ideation’ session. The workshop is aimed at software developers, hardware makers and innovators.

Ideation

Great ideas don’t arise from splendid isolation. Structure and creativity combined however, lead to impactful result. During the workshop we will familiarise you with a 7-step methodology to formulate, structure, share and challenge your ideas to evaluate how IoT technologies will strengthen them. Team size will be 2-3 people, typically innovators or designers and the workshop duration is about 4 hours.

IoT Prototyping (Sensors, Computer and prototyping platform)

All participating teams will use an AllThingsTalk Rapid Development Kit. This prototyping tool includes an computer and a set of sensors. Next to the hardware the Kit includes access to AllThingsTalk IoT Prototyping Platform to enable you to quickly connect your devices and develop interaction between them and the Web Services of your choice using the powerful rules wizard included in the platform. Team size will be 2-3 people, hardware or software developers and the workshop duration is about 4 hours.

Professional coaches and product specialists

Product specialists, developers and coaches from AllThingsTalk will be glad to support participants with hands-on assistance when needed.

Innovative Technologies and Bright Ideas. Now What ?

(Almost) Everybody has heard about a promising future where the Internet of Things will affect our lives and business. But today most of us still have questions on how it will affect our business processes, businesses and product innovation. So, how can we tackle and kick start the innovation proces within our company, how do we embrace innovative ideas and technologies as an organisation, share ideas and build them into viable products?
This presentation will attempt to demystify IoT and address these questions.

Lectures:

Clean Android Architecture

Most engineers start working on apps as prototypes with less focus on architecture and more focus on functionality until the point when the app's architecture or lack thereof becomes an impediment in continuing to build features into the app at a fast pace. This talk will cover experiences with Coursera's Android app, build up on issues with MVC and go on to illustrate how to start with MVC and get to a solution that fits the needs of apps.

Clean Architecture is a great way to start thinking about architecture for apps. Using SOLID principles, its a philosophy that motivates developers to think of architecture in terms of intents rather than frameworks and build software that are independent of UI, database or libraries. UI changes much faster than databases, and its important to decouple former from latter to make changes to it easily without affecting the latter, which is what this philosophy motivates. The talk will go through a way of implementing clean architecture using a modified version VIPER, and into implementation details using a sample application.

Absurd UX Tests: How I Get Honest Design Feedback

“Your design sucks.” Three words that every designer fears. And they aren’t said enough. In this talk, Austin Knight (Senior UX Designer at HubSpot) will discuss one of his unconventional usability experiments (involving a drunk user) and how it can be used to conduct research that is harsh, honest, and actionable. Learn about new methods for overcoming the struggles and pitfalls of traditional user testing, obtaining true and honest user feedback, and verifying the usability and simplicity of a design. Discover the resulting impact on bottom-line metrics like conversion rate, retention, engagement, and revenue. Walk away with a list of tools that you can use to conduct similar research and experiments on your own projects. Finally, learn about what it means to have a Culture of UX and gain actionable advice on how you can create it within your own company.

Android App Architecture for the Everyday Developer

MVC, MVP, MVVM, Clean and more keywords might sound familiar to you, these describes patterns that helps developers building high quality software by organizing things up. But why bother? why not stick to the classic 'don't fix what ain't broken'? A well planified architected app can speed up the development process and simplify the long term maintainability. It's not enough to keep functions smalls and not building a god-Activity, we need to level-up and design towards clean architecture. This talk will review and discuss MVP and Clean approaches, how to start, and tips on architecting our apps in a compelling way.

Design Sprints: No, Design Doesn't Go Faster, You Just Make Better Products.

Considering creating a new product or re-think of an existing one? Why not increase your chances of success with a design sprint? Design sprints are time-bound prototyping exercises that help your team explore new solutions, test product ideas, and validate your findings—all in a short amount of time.

Organizational Dynamics of Innovation

It is not the strongest that survives, rather the most adaptable. What structural, behavioral, cultural, and organizational factors play into a company's success in producing hit product after hit product? Examining both successful and unsuccessful examples, this talk presents a framework for teams to set themselves up for repeated innovation success

Hardware Hacking with Raspberry Pi [hands on]

The idea behind the Raspberry Pi project is to provide a small and cheap PC replacement, that can be used for teaching children basic computer science. But its able to do so much more. It has GPIO, a lot of processing power and multiple connectivity options. All this makes It a potent Arduino replacement. I would like to invite you to a hands on exploration of the Raspberry Pi GPIO port. We will start by interfacing some basic components (LEDs, buttons, etc). We will also play with a cool (and surprisingly simple) technique called Capacitive Proximity Sensing. Then, when we have learned enough, I will encourage you to let your imagination drift, and hack together a cool contraption.
