What happens when you have expensive industrial equipment that needs to be moved from point A to point B and you want to anticipate all that could happen in the process: improper handling, power failure, or even thievery? How do you collect data from its various sensors (vibration, humidity, etc.) to make sure your equipment is operating properly? How do you provide connectivity so that all the way from point A to point B, your asset is reporting to a backend server to allow for remote tracking? What kind of backend system should you rely on for collecting and making use of the information that you will be collecting?
Join this year's Red Hat Summit IoT CodeStarter  to experience - live! - the capabilities of open source projects such as Eclipse Kura and Eclipse Kapua for creating efficient and easy-to-maintain IoT solutions for asset management.
You will learn how to interface with industrial equipment using the OPC-UA standard protocol and Eclipse Kura Wires, an innovative approach to easily interface field devices with IoT cloud backends. You will also leverage the Eclipse Kapua IoT Cloud to create your very own monitoring dashboard where you'll be able to track in realtime your valuable assets.
You will be manipulating real hardware, and you will be using the Eclipse Open IoT Testbed for Asset Tracking, giving you a unique opportunity to perform hands-on real-world IoT development!
The IoT CodeStarter at Red Hat Summit takes place Tuesday, May 2 starting at 6 p.m. Space is limited, so register for this codestarter now.
This year’s IoT CodeStarter is sponsored by the Eclipse IoT Workgroup, Eurotech, and Red Hat.
 A CodeStarter is like a hack fest, except everyone is a winner!
