SDC Day 2 Wrap-up

Samsung Developer Conference 2016 is now officially over, and we want to thank everyone who came to the conference. We love the opportunity to talk with so many developers in a focused period of time. If you didn’t get a chance to join us this year, don’t worry. We shot video of all the good stuff and we’re hard at work prepping those videos for you. We know it’s not as good as being here, but at least you won’t have to deal with airport security to attend your virtual conference. Here is a taste of the video goodness coming your way.

IoT Technical Sessions

Every technical session at SDC 2016 was recorded and will be made available soon is now available. Here are just some of the available sessions:

  • Samsung Empowering IoT Developers / Samsung Vision and Strategy is a great overview of the ARTIK architecture and why it matters to developers, both developers of hardware and developers of software and services. Watch the session >
  • Samsung ARTIK Cloud was presented from two points of view: Abhi Rele, Director of Product Marketing Samsung, presented features and benefits of ARTIK Cloud. Two developers then talked about their experience using ARTIK Cloud: Jean-Pierre Viannay discussed how Legrand uses it for lighting and control; Pierre Lecointre showed how Digibe uses it to connect IoT networks to analytics and asset performance services. (The SDK 2016 program listed this session as Enabling Device Interoperability and Data-Driven IoT Apps and Services because we had not yet launched ARTIK Cloud when we published the conference agenda.)

  • Bringing Your IoT Project to Market With and Samsung Artik is presented by Dan Gross with Samsung and Alexandros Marinos with allows developers to securely deploy and update IoT applications, including fail-safe rollback in case of a problem with the new release. Watch the technical session >
  • IoTivity: An Open Connectivity Framework for the IoT introduces you to this open source software framework enabling seamless device-to-device connectivity. Watch the technical session >
  • Maximizing the Power of ARTIK with Development Tools covered a lot of ground in a short time. Dan Gross, Director of Technical Support for Samsung, opened the session with an overview of languages supported on ARTIK 5 and ARTIK 10 modules, then previewed the upcoming ARTIK API. The API includes modules for everything you’d expect from a microcontroller (GPIO, localization, etc) plus a module to access ARTIK Cloud. The API is accessible from C, C++, and Node.js. Then Wei Xiao, Tech Evangelist and Sr. Staff Engineer at Samsung, discussed development tools from Arduino and Temboo. Watch the video and you’ll also catch a discussion about Node-RED, see a live demo of a connected smart trash can, and get a preview of the ARTIK IDE. Watch the technical session >
  • An Introduction to ARTIK IDE Powered by Eclipse Che was the last session on the last day of the conference, and was packed with interested developers. Presented by Tyler Jewell, CEO of Codenvy and project lead for Eclipse Che, this was a “deep dive overview” of Eclipse Che and how it works with ARTIK. Eclipse Che employs a new type of development architecture, where each workspace includes not only project files but the IDE and execution stack as well. It works as well in the cloud as it does on a local machine. We’re very excited about the power this will give developers! Watch the technical session >

In our next post, we’ll go over all the demos from SDC. We’re still editing the videos for those as well, but we think they’ll be worth the wait!
