      Ever wonder what the IoT hoopla is all about? Ever wonder what edge devices are out there and how they can be used to get your data into the PI System? If so, then join us for two lab sessions using two example edge devices; Electric Imp's ImpModule and Qualcomm's Dragonboard410c.

       

      Both labs will take place at the Parc 55 Hotel on Thursday March 23rd. Pre-registration is required; register at the OSIsoft Users Conference page, http://www.osisoft.com/users-conference/san-francisco/day3.html

       

      Data Ingress Application Development Using Web Based Technologies (10:15 AM)

      Representational State Transfer (REST) is the de facto standard for Web and mobile applications; it is primarily used to build Web services that are lightweight, maintainable, and scalable. The PI System provides a RESTful API in two products, the PI Connector for UFL and the PI Web API, and both have been proven in IoT data integration scenarios. In this instructor-led, hands-on lab you will learn about REST and why it's so popular, OSIsoft's REST based products and how to apply them, and how to develop REST based Web services. We will also teach you the basics of the PI System architecture as related to the information exposed by these REST APIs. You will be provided with an IoT edge device and sample code and will use these to develop your own REST based Web service to ingress data to the PI System. This lab is recommended for individuals who are curious about IoT, REST, Web services, and how these technologies relate to the PI System, and don't mind getting their hands dirty with a little software development. This lab requires basic PI System knowledge and basic programming skills. A general understanding of Web based architecture is a plus, but not required.

       

      Develop Data Ingress Applications on Your Favorite Edge Devices Using the OSIsoft Message Format (2:15 AM)

      In this instructor-led, hands-on lab you will learn about the updated PI connector framework architecture, the new OSIsoft Message Format (OMF), and how OMF can address your IoT data ingress needs. We will teach you the basics of the PI System architecture and the primary data structures it contains as required to understand OMF: PI tags, assets, and Event Frames. You will be provided with an IoT edge device and sample code and will use these to develop your own OMF based application to ingress data to the PI System. This lab is recommended for individuals who are curious about IoT, edge devices, and how these can be applied to the PI System, and don't mind learning new or sharpening existing software development skills. This lab requires basic PI System knowledge and basic programming skills. A general understanding of current developer technologies like Python, Node.js, and Java is a plus, but not required.
