ThingMonk 2016Developers, Data, Design: The New Industrial

ThingMonk is the developer conference for people making IoT platforms. We bring together technologists and designers building core infrastructure for IoT for 2 days of awesome, unique talks on topics including bots, industrial automation/industry 4.0, machine learning, time series data, programming language choices and UX. These are talks by practitioners.

We’re not cheerleaders for thoughtless automation- we’ll have skeptical, thoughtful critical talks about creating a culture and making the right design decisions so that the IoT serves us, rather than us serving it. Run screaming for Internet-connected toasters.

ThingMonk is about tech but it’s also a warm, supportive, welcoming and diverse community. This year we are honoured to introduce a special diversity scholarship sponsored by OpenSensors.io.

ThingMonk 2016 will be held at two venues in Shoreditch within 100 50 yards of each- Day 0 at Protein, and Day 1 and 2 Shoreditch Studios, 37 Batemans Row, EC2A 3HH

Agenda


Day 0

"Day 0" event on September 12, featuring a half day conference dedicated to the Eclipse Foundation's IoT ecosystem, starting at 9:30am.

After lunch, we are also bringing the ThingMonk hackday back, starting at 1:30pm, and it is going to be epic. We’ll have workshops on programming with IBM Watson, Pycom and Amazon Alexa Skills (tbc). We have been talking about Conversational IoT for the last couple of years, so it's time to start building it. People talking to machines talking to people. We'll definitely have some Echos to play with, and expect a couple of giveaways too. This won't be a competitive event, but a great place to learn, meet people and build cool things. We’ll finish the day Coding by Candelight until 9pm.


Day 1

Day 1 After registration at 9:15 the main conference will kick off at 10am, with a rip roaring opening talk by Sam Phippen. A morning of talks and then we’ll have an amazing lunch between 1 and 2:30pm. If you’ve been to a RedMonk event you know what to expect - if not, you’re in for a treat. We aim for sensational food and drink experiences at our conferences. Talks after lunch, coffee at 3:45. More great talks 5:45 - Finish, beers and wine, with dinner at 7pm.


Day 2

10 AM start, 1 - 2:30 - lunch. 4PM Finish.

ThingMonk 2016 will be held at two venues in Shoreditch within 100 50 yards of each- Day 0 at Protein, and Day 1 and 2 Shoreditch Studios, 37 Batemans Row, EC2A 3HH
