DevNation 2015 - Paulus Bakker & Sander Mak - Provisioning the Internet of Things

How do we get our software out on the Internet of Things (IoT)? Many current deployment practices won’t work. Devices can be occasionally connected, through low-bandwidth networks, but are generally outside of direct control. Manually shuffling around binaries is not an option. Apache ACE is an open source Java provisioning tool that tackles such challenges. This software distribution framework allows you to centrally manage and distribute software components, configuration data, and other artifacts to target systems. In this session, learn how Apache ACE enables you to push out incremental updates and manage numerous devices. We’ll show how to update and extend a fictional car entertainment system using Apache ACE.
