We’re on our way to CES for a couple of days to review what’s going on in #iot in the US thanks to the nice people at Here but took the time to clean this site up a little for a new year.
You’ll find the menu has been cleaned up and you can see a digest of last year’s speakers. We’ll add past years over the next weeks.
We’ve also got a section on special events featuring our June 16th Open IOT Definition Review where we’ll revisit the Open IOT Definition that the community wrote in 2012.
