Seeking Inflection Points: My new role at Intel


Starting tomorrow I will be taking on the position of “Inventor Platform Manager, Strategic Partners” at Intel’s New Technology Group (focusing on Makers and Innovators). In this role, I will be working with a broad ecosystem of cloud partners (Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, Google etc), developers, makers and hardware accelerators to increase the usability and adoption of Intel’s maker products such as Intel Edison, Intel Curie, the Arduino 101 (and future devices).

Looking forward to meeting the next generation of makers, couldn’t be more excited to be in this role within Intel at this time.

Commercial IoT Workshop (with IBM Bluemix)

Spent the last two days hauling tons of laptops and gateways in a U-Haul truck, that was fun. 40 developers, 40 Moon Island Gateways, 40 Intel Edison and Sensor Kits and an IBM Bluemix workshop, fun times.

Amazon re:Invent and Intel IoT Announcements

My team spent the last three months collaborating with Amazon Web Services on a new custom Intel IoT sensor kit from Seeed Studios. The new kit contains a variety of industrial sensors useful for prototyping new IoT solutions. We are very excited to see how the internet of things space is continuing to evolve.

We have published getting started guides and some sample applications to help developers get up and running with the new AWS for IoT platform.

Thanks to Amazon Web Services for inviting me to support two 8-hour IoT Bootcamps prior to re:Invent, looking forward to many more such workshops.

Goodbye IDF 2015

IDF this year was a massive amount of work but well worth the effort.

Intel IDF 2015 Setup

Spent the last two weeks building (in C++, Arduino, Node.js and Python) these lasercut Intel Edison slap boxes to show off how to build an IBM Bluemix MQTT game. Martin Kronberg did amazing work putting this all together and creating the designs. Finally we got it all setup and running here at IDF, a few highlights.
