Lightning Talk: Turning IOT Data into valuable Information: The opportunities and challenges.

During the past decade, businesses have been implementing IoT applications by connecting devices/“things” on their internal network (InTRAnet) to provide better customer service, reduce costs and more. These businesses are converting the vast amounts of data generated into actionable insights by applying advanced analytics technologies designed specifically to handle the requirements of Real-time Big Data analytics.

With more and more devices being connected to the InTERnet, the opportunity for additional value is growing rapidly as the projected number devices connected broadly across all of IoT grows exponentially.

To truly take advantage of the massive amounts of real-time data in the emerging IoT world, we need to transform our thinking, processes, and infrastructure to act in seconds...not hours and days.

This presentation will discuss the opportunities, challenges,  and solutions related to analyzing large amounts of IOT data.

API Design Workflow
API and UI shares a surprising amount of similarities that are not obvious at first glance. An API is essentially a UI, where the user happens to be a developer. Most APIs these days are first designed on a whiteboard, then fully implemented and then exposed to the first external users.

We'll explore together a superior approach. Like UIs, APIs should go through rapid design iterations that are exposed to end-users and modified based on user behavior.

PANEL: How to Design APIs that Developers Will Love

It’s no surprise that creating developer-friendly APIs is a daunting task: from strategizing on evangelism techniques to the differences between the enterprise and open web, there are many ways to succeed and at the same time, many ways to fail. 

 Steve Marx (Developer Advocate at Dropbox) will moderate a panel consisting of Jason Harmon (Platform Architect at Paypal), Neil Mansilla (Director of Platform and Partnerships at Mashery), David Hu (Developer Advocate at Foursquare) and Seb Taveau (Chief Developer Evangelist - Open API at MasterCard) to explore the best ways to create user-friendly APIs. They'll take into consideration the various elements that go into building applications and evaluate the developer experience as a whole. With over 50 years of combined experience in the developer community, this panel of experts has the background and expertise across industries to dig into the myriad of tools it takes to be successful and the various approaches to API strategies. They'll share real-world examples that bring to life the development experience.

Quantify Thyself, then Go Forth and Conquer with a Personal Life API
Learn how to expose all your quantified self data via a simple Life API. Use that data for tasks ranging from making real-time decisions to long term planning.

The presentation/workshop is composed of the following three phases.

Phase 1: Use techniques from Personal Productivity experts to identify what data is important to quantify.

Phase 2: Create a template for helping us determine what tools, services and devices will automate (mostly) our data collection.

Phase 3: Combine and expose our data behind a Life API. We will design the API using APIary.io and implement it using Python/Flask. At this point we will explore how we can use this API and put our data to work.

To focus and make sure you all walk away with a tangible result within our allotted time, we will limit our scope to the area of health.

MireDot - Perfect REST API Documentation in 5 Minutes
Your REST API is great but if your documentation sucks, your customers won't feel the love.    Documentation is often considered only as an afterthought, something separate from the development process. "Are we ready to release? Is the documentation ready? Did somebody check it? - Blank stares" Sounds familiar?    Documentation writing shouldn't be a manual activity decoupled from development. The code has all the information already. You just need to get it out. You need a good documentation generator.    In this talk, we present MireDot - a REST API documentation generator for Java. MireDot excels at the accuracy of the generated documentation. It takes into account complex Java constructs (generics, inheritance) and existing annotations (Jax-RS, Jackson, Javadoc, …) that other generators don't. It requires almost no effort to set up and uses the information that is already present in your source code. Just plug it into your build system and your    documentation rolls out in seconds.

TALK: How APIs Are Changing The Way We Handle Our Money

As financial data APIs become increasingly accessible and easy to integrate, there's been an explosion in financial innovation happening outside of traditional financial sectors that's disrupting the way people interact with their finances. No longer do consumers need to write out checks or bother with bank transfers -- Venmo makes peer-to-peer payments as easy as a text message. No longer do small businesses in need of capital need to spend business hours at a bank branch and risk the embarrassment of being turned down for a loan -- Kabbage provides small business lending online, and in a matter of minutes.

 This presentation will cover how the development of financial APIs allows businesses and individuals of all sizes to access financial data that has traditionally been controlled by large, established banks, and how this is changing the way we handle our money. It will also discuss what this explosion of innovation in the non-bank sector signals for the future of finance – and what this future will look like.

TALK: Linked API's: dark art of building highly distributed systems that can cross organizational boundries
Practical problems that innovative product and tech teams face increasingly go far beyond the comfortable usual. "Big Data" doesn't just mean petabytes of data or a data-set that doesn't fit in a single large RDBMS, anymore. A "distributed system" doesn't just mean a clever multi-tier architecture or even an AWS deployment happily humming-along across multiple regions.     Increasingly, Big Data problems mean processing data-sets the various parts of which are distributed across multiple organizations. A "distributed system" is usually one which needs to connect non-heterogenous systems across organizational boundaries. Such problems are far from trivial and require new kinds of approaches. Linked APIs architectural style is a new frontier of distributed programming and Big Data: one that can cross over organizational, technological and cultural boundaries to break through data silos to better integrate data and processes.

KEYNOTE: 10 Reasons Why Developers Hate Your API and What To Do About It
APIs are everywhere today and can be a great building block of modern applications. But all too often APIs are not truly great. Rather than love your API, developers curse it. How can you avoid that fate? In this session we'll look at the most common mistakes API providers make and you can avoid making them too. Do you offer a bad developer experience (DX)? Poor, inconsistent API design? Unreliable services? This talk is a deep dive on not just what to avoid but what to do instead. And you'll leave knowing how to get developers to love your API, not hate it.

The Dance: API's and Indoor Location
Your phone can tell where you are pretty well. The native location libraries use a combination of GPS and Wifi to determine where it thinks you are. That's not good enough, though, for your phone to know specifically where you are on all 3 axes inside a building.

This talk will go over the basics of using location APIs, using bluetooth beacons (iBeacon), and communicating with a server to make contextual sense of where exactly you are in the world and also in a building.

The Developer’s Dilemma: Do-It-Yourself Storage or Surrender Your Data?
Creating an app isn’t simple. Early in the process of designing the app, decisions have to be made around how app data will be stored, and for most developers the cloud is an obvious choice. At this point, developers need to make an important choice: invest time, energy and resources in creating their own DIY file systems that sits on top of public cloud infrastructure; or take the shortcut and use a cloud storage API, and surrender their users’ data to popular cloud storage services. In this session, Bitcasa CEO, Brian Taptich will outline the impact of this dilemma on the future functionality and user experience of an app, and also discuss why the next generation of apps will require better file systems that offer broad capabilities, performance, security and scalability, and most importantly, developer control of user data and experience.

TALK: Documenting API's: Sample Code and More
Sample code and documentation are important when engaging a developer audience, but what are the guidelines? How can you maintain consistent tone across languages, platforms, and levels of developer experience? How do you create a small set of samples that will allow a VB6 developer to consume your newest products, but still have your legacy SOAP API be approachable to a newly-minted Rails developer? Supportability matters too - we'll talk about creating a single set of sample code style guidelines that can apply to that wide range of languages and frameworks. We'll compare some leading developer documentation sites and discuss strategies for keeping documentation and sample code content consistent, comprehensive, and concise.

TALK: The Life and Times of an API: A Play in Three Acts
An API has a lifecycle, just like a person or product. It is born, nurtured, and eventually retired. How you manage these milestones in the life of your API has a significant impact on the success of the API, your reputation as an API provider, and your relationship with developers. This session will offer a balanced look at how we go about managing APIs at Google, using real world examples to illustrate what to expect when managing an API of your own.

Combining Human Information and APIs to Tap into the Full Potential of the Internet of Things
The IoT is quickly evolving beyond being synonymous with sensor-driven data and becoming socially engaging. There is an overwhelming influx of human information generated in our daily lives that remain untapped and underutilized. Conversations that we have online and offline, pictures that we take, tweets that we post – this human information is often neglected due to the difficulty of understanding or harnessing it, yet it makes up the vast majority of all information that exists. Imagine a sound system that automatically plays music based on the mood conveyed in your tweets, or a Nerf gun that only targets people on your naughty list. Now you can automate extraction of human information and easily access functionalities such as OCR, speech-to-text, face recognition, sentiment analysis or categorization through a simple call of an API to unlock the full potential of the Internet of Things. Join us for this engaging session as we discuss the opportunities of leveraging APIs that can harness human information, as well as perform a live Nerf gun demo.

Accelerating the Web for the Internet of Things
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it's been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you'll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, "Things," Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it's an Internet of many different things. The difference is that what have in the past been disparate and disconnected systems are now rapidly becoming uniform, connected, and always-on systems.

This shift in computing triggers new demands and requirements that will put existing infrastructures to the test and most likely cause massive disruption in the technology echo system, as old players can't keep up with new more agile players. As with any major technology shift it is important to stay open minded to new ideas and emerging technologies, technologies that may help you stay ahead in the next 10 to 20 years.

With this explosive growth in connected devices, predominantly Web-enabled and Web-accessible devices (yes, we're thinking about smartphones, tablets, vehicles, utility meters, apparel, and more) the demand for more live information, communication and distribution of data over the Web will grow exponentially. How are we going to be able to address these potential?

How API access control = monetization + freedom
Control access to your APIs, and you can charge for them. Large companies see API access management at scale as a competitive advantage and a way to lock in customers. Think about Google docs: it only works if both parties have an account at Google.

But the Internet was not achieved by the offering of one domain. If each device and cloud service has proprietary security controls, people will have no way to effectively manage their personal digital infrastructure. Luckily, standards have emerged thanks to a simple but flexible JSON/REST framework called OAuth2, and the “OpenID Connect” and “User Managed Access” profiles of it.

This talk will provide a history of access management and a deep dive into the concepts, patterns, and tools to enable mobile and API developers to put new OAuth2 standards to use today. It will provide specific examples and workflows to bring OAuth2 to life to help organizations understand how they can hook into the API economy.

TALK: Data Science at Scale! Creating Complex Machine Scoring Applications with Cascading Pattern
Cascading Pattern is an open source project that takes models trained in popular analytics frameworks, such as R, SAS, Microstrategy, etc., and runs them at scale on Apache Hadoop. With Pattern, developers can use a Java API to create complex machine learning applications, such as recommenders or fraud detection. Pattern effectively lowers the barrier of adoption to Apache Hadoop for developers because developers can use existing skillsets to immediately begin building these complex applications.    This machine-learning library works by translating PMML – an established XML standard for predictive model markup – into data workflows based on the Cascading API in Java. PMML models can be run in a pre-defined JAR file with no coding required. PMML can also be combined with other flows based on ANSI SQL (Cascading Lingual), Scala (Scalding), Clojure (Cascalog), etc. Multiple companies have collaborated to implement parallelized algorithms: Random Forest, Logistic Regression, K-Means, Hierarchical Clustering, etc. Benefits include greatly reduced development costs and less licensing issues at scale – while leveraging a combination of Apache Hadoop clusters, existing intellectual property in predictive models, and the core competencies of analytics staff.     In this presentation, Concurrent, Inc.’s Alexis Roos, will provide sample code that will show applications using predictive models built in SAS and R, such as anti-fraud classifiers. Additionally, Alexis will compare variations of models for enterprise-class customer experiments.

The building industry is siloed in terms of data interoperability between architects, engineers, contractors, and owners/operators - impeding their ability to analyze or leverage data produced at disparate phases of the planning, design, construction, and operation phases. The future of building data will be driven by the unification of data across the entire building lifecycle using a network of robust API's.
