Wednesday, August 21:

3:15-3:50 pm – Oticon Engineers Mark Ruvald and Klaus Peterson will present “Zephyr on a Hearing Aid,” that features  the molding of Zephyr into a project that also supports the most exotic development environments, like those found in the making of an FDA approved medical device like a hearing aid, life-changing device that uses almost no power, almost no space and will be produced in millions, sold to millions of users. Add it to your schedule:

4:20-4:50 pm – Frederic Desbiens, Program Manager, IoT and Edge Computing for the Eclipse Foundation, will discuss “To Boldly Go Where Linux cannot with Zephyr and Eclipse IoT.” In this presentation, you will learn how to do both using the Eclipse Paho MQTT client and the Eclipse Waakama OMA Lightweight M2M (LWM2M) library. You will also discover other components of the Eclipse IoT system that could be useful to you, and learn the basics of Zephyr. Add it to your schedule:
