Kaazing Powers the Internet of Things at HTML5DevConf October 2013 (San Francisco)

On 21-24 October 2013, HTML5DevConf returned to San Francisco, this time at the enormous Moscone Center North. As always, the sold-out conference attracted web developers, architects, business development leads, CTOs, CEOs, designers, students, QA engineers, technical writers — and many more — from all over the world. With the move from the Palace Hotel to Moscone North, the conference also saw a huge increase in attendance with filled rooms for all ten (yes, 10) tracks. The conference also held three days of training, all of which sold out weeks before the event.

Kaazing was proud to host a booth on both days of the conference in Moscone’s famous Exhibit Hall. We showed lots of demos of using WebSockets and HTML5 to power objects (including a radio controlled truck), super-fast financial applications, as well as controlling Goo Technologies’ Pearl Boy demo with WebSockets. Here is one of our engineers, Sanjay, with the Android mascot …

It was a fun event, and we even raffled off an iPad mini. Congratulations to the winner, Steve!

Our own Head of Training, Richard Clark (@rdclark), led a day-long training course on Native HTML5 Development. Kaazing’s Director of Technology, Frank Greco (@frankgreco) and Director of Product Management, Robin Zimmerman (@robinzim) gave a presentation to hundreds of attendees on WebSocket Perspectives and Visions for the Future. Frank’s slides are online; the recording will be available soon. Frank and Robin also showed some cool demos on using WebSockets and messaging (pub/sub) with a Raspberry Pi to control objects, including turning on a light using a light switch remotely over WebSockets. This demo was built by Kaazing engineers David Witherspoon (@DPW_Spoon) and Prashant Khanal (@ipras); check out how they built it.
After Frank and Robin’s presentation, we returned to our booth and enjoyed more conversation with attendees on using messaging and WebSockets.
This was a really exciting and fun conference. Thanks so much to Ann and her awesome team of organizers. We’re definitely looking forward to the next one!
