We're kicking off 2022 with our third annual Spacewalk event!
*Please note, this was originally scheduled for Tuesday, January 18 at 6:30 pm ET as a hybrid event (both in-person and virtual) at The Carolina Theater in Durham, NC. Due to COVID-19 and Omicron, we're transitioning to a virtual-only format on January 25 at 12 noon. We apologize in advance for the change-of-plans, but safety is a top priority.
The meetup is 100% free of course, but a quick Zoom registration is required - https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_3ZlW28AYRbeCT7MGf3M1Rw

THE TECHNICAL PRESENTATION:
David Simmons, Principal Developer Advocate, Camunda, Inc.
David is an Internet of Things (IoT) pioneer who has been working in the field for over 15 years. He has also been a DevRel professional for even longer. David is now the Principal Developer Advocate at Camunda. Previously, he was Head of Developer Relations at QuestDB and the Senior Developer Advocate at Influx Data. He has spoken internationally including keynote addresses.
Automating the IoT with BPMN
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) has always been using sensors and data to make better business decisions in all sorts of industries. But has the promise paid off? If not, then how can we move things forward to make it pay off?
One way is by using Business Process Management techniques to help "automate the automation" and bring IoT processes into the larger business context of the overall business operations. Wait, what? That's an awful lot of business-speak!
True enough, so in this talk, I'll walk through an entire Proof of Concept, from concept to implementation, where I have automated a greenhouse to optimize growing conditions using sensors, actuators, and coordinating all aspects of the greenhouse using Camunda PLatform BPMN to integrate business rules with greenhouse best-practices.
