Open Connectivity Foundation to Host Inaugural IoTivity Developer Day

IoT Consortium Launches Inaugural Developer Day and Sponsors Linux Foundation’s OpenIoT Summit

PORTLAND, Ore.--()--Today, the Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) announced its inaugural IoTivity Developer Day on Wednesday, April 6. The event will be held in conjunction with the Linux Foundation’s OpenIoT Summit, taking place April 4 – 6, 2016 in San Diego at the Port Pavilion.

During this one-day event developers will get hands-on experience with the IoTivity code in the OFC lab and see how easy it is to implement this technology into their own products when developing next generation Internet of Things (IoT)-connected devices. In addition, they will have the opportunity to speak with industry experts, learn more about how to certify their products and have the opportunity to use the recently launched developer toolkit.

“IoTivity adoption has been significant since it launched last year and we are aware that developers are eager to learn more,” said Mike Richmond, executive director at the Open Connectivity Foundation. “The IoTivity Developer Day will give developers the complete 360 view on this technology and how they can start taking advantage of it with their products.”

The OCF is also the host sponsor for the OpenIoT Summit and will be exhibiting at booth #121.
