Internet of Things top picks for Dreamforce 2015! #IoT

The “Internet of Things” is the buzziest term in technology which has dethroned Big Data (according to Gartner). Gartner also believes that it will become the pillars of digital business and be of huge importance to business going forward and as such there are a load of IoT talks at Dreamforce this year. So that being said I thought I’d share my top IoT sessions picks for Dreamforce 15.

Creating a Connected Foosball Table with Arduino, Raspberry Pi & Salesforce

Innovations in technology and Salesforce now allow individuals to make almost any object “smart” or solve any business problem when placed in capable hands. The Salesforce Studio at Deloitte Digital wanted to make their traditional foosball table “smart enough” to track player statistics and data, ultimately creating a ranking and bracketing algorithm capable of pairing like-skilled players. Join us to see how we’ve combined Internet of Things technologies, such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi, with the Force.com Streaming API and web services to create automatic game scoring and data logging, and present it in a near real-time, bootstrap-enabled, HTML5 scoring page. The game doesn’t stop with game play. Users can interact and report on player data and statistics through Wave and out-of-the-box Salesforce!
