EVRYTHNG hosts showcase as part of annual Web of Things Workshop
11 September 2013 – London & Zurich.
EVRYTHNG, the Web of Things software company that makes products smart by connecting them to the Web, has led the first public showcase of a beta Internet of Things platform from the European COMPOSE technology project. This happened exclusively at the Web of Things Hackathon in Zurich – which also formed part of the Web of Things Workshop organised annually by EVRYTHNG.
EVRYTHNG is engaged on the three year EU COMPOSE project, working with IBM, the World Wide Web Consortium (through ERCIM), universities from across Europe, several other technology companies and the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre. The overall aim is to develop an open technical framework for Internet of Things applications and services to connect with each other, and making it fast and easy to bring them to market.
Vlad Trifa, Chief Product Officer at EVRYTHNG, said: “This hackathon was an important milestone for the COMPOSE EU project – it was the first time we shared with the developer community a running instance of the platform and APIs we’ve developed jointly with technology partners such as IBM and the Barcelona Supercomputing Center. It was a unique opportunity to showcase a scalable platform to build innovative Web of Things applications using purely Web standards.”
