Eclipse Day Milan 2017 : speaking about Eclipse Hono !

Last Friday, September 22nd, I was in Milan for the first Eclipse Day !

It was a really great event with a good number of attendees (there were about 100 people) following sessions from italian and international speakers.

I had my session speaking about Eclipse Hono, digging into its architecture, its API and what it provides today for building IoT solutions. Of course, having an open source platform for the Internet of Things gets a lot of interest from developers.

Being in Milan gave me the chance to meet some colleagues from the Red Hat office as well 🙂

You can find the slides about my session here.

GnatMQ : a more community driven future !

When I developed the M2Mqtt library, a lot of people asked me to develop a .Net based MQTT broker as well. It wasn’t my initial intention but at same time I thought that it could be a good idea trying to reuse part of the M2Mqtt client in order to do that : this is the way how GnatMQ was born.

From the beginning I said that it wasn’t a production ready MQTT broker with decent performance for its job but in the last years it turned out that a lot of developers started to use it for their IoT solutions.

Due to my last really busy year and pushed by this issue opened in the GnatMQ repo, this week I decided to create a GnatMQ organization and making this broker more open source then before. I added some developers who asked me to be member of such organization so that they can drive the GnatMQ future better than me : this members proved to contribute to the project in the past pushing PRs on it. Of course, I won’t give up on that, I will always feel like the project’s father and I’ll coordinate such community.

So … it means that GnatMQ isn’t dead … the community and the power of collaboration will move it to the next level, maybe having a really good fully .Net based MQTT broker !

 

EnMasse and Eclipse Hono ? Messaging and IoT ? I have some events for you !

 

events

Do you want to learn more about the EnMasse project ?

Do you want to learn the same for the Eclipse Hono project ?

Do you want to know more about their relationship and how they simplify the development and deployment of messaging and IoT solutions ?

Well … in the coming weeks my agenda will be packed of events about them. Let’s see !

Eclipse Day Milan 2017

On September 22nd there will be the Eclipse Day Milan 2017 and I’ll be there with the “Eclipse Hono : Connect. Command. Control.” session. What will you see there ?

The open source counterpart to closed and proprietary IoT solutions is called Hono ! Born out of the collaboration of big companies, including Red Hat and Bosch both members of the Eclipse Foundation, Hono is an open source framework which aims to add features, such as device management and authentication, on top of an highly scalable messaging infrastructure in order to guarantee secured data exchange between devices and cloud applications. Using its APIs, devices can send data (telemetry and event) and can be controlled remotely (command/control). During this session we will see the “bricks” that make its architecture, the exposed APIs and the integration with other solutions.

There will be a lot of other great sessions focused on the Eclipse Foundation ecosystem so I think that it will be a really awesome event !

Eclipse IoT Virtual meetup

The Eclipse Foundation hosts a lot of virtual meetups on IoT projects which are part of the foundation itself. Of course, Eclipse Hono is one of them !

On October 11st, I and Kai Hudalla (from Bosch Software Innovations) will have this meetup. We hope to reach a really huge “online” audience in order to show how Hono is a really powerful platform for connecting and control IoT devices at scale.

It will be simpler for you to be there … just take a seat at home !

JavaSI

On October 16th – 17th there will be the JavaSI conference organized by SIOUG.

I and my awesome team mate Ulf Lilleengen will be there with a session and a workshop.

First of all the “EnMasse : open sourcing the messaging and IoT” session as an introduction to the workshop.

Out there there are a lot of “closed” source products for developing messaging and IoT based solutions. What if you want to have more control on your platform ? EnMasse is the answer!

It’s a totally “open” source messaging-as-a-service platform which can be deployed on-premise, in the cloud or even in an hybrid scenario. At the same time it aims to be highly scalable in terms of throughput and the number of connections, based on standard protocols like AMQP 1.0 and MQTT and provides different patterns for messages exchange. Its nature makes EnMasse a great solution for IoT deployments in order to handle millions of connected devices for ingesting telemetry data and controlling them.

Then the “EnMasse – messaging and IoT in your hands” workshop speaking about the EnMasse project and how it’s really great for building messaging and IoT solutions.

Interested in messaging and IoT ? Kubernetes and OpenShift? In this workshop, we will dive into EnMasse, an open source Messaging-as-a-Service platform, built on top of Kubernetes and OpenShift. You will setup OpenShift or Kubernetes, deploy EnMasse, and build an end-2-end solution with edge devices, messaging, and analytics.

You will learn basic Kubernetes and OpenShift concepts as we go, and learn how you can use EnMasse to implement different messaging patterns in your application.

During this workshop you will touch messaging and IoT stuff with your hands !
