About the Summit

Over the last four years, RIOT has been emerged as one of the agile and state of the art operating system for the IoT. The previous Summits were a big success. It’s time to meet again face-to-face!

The RIOT Summit aims for bringing together RIOTers, beginners and experts, as well as people interested in the IoT in general and decision makers who plan to deploy RIOT in the future. The event combines plenary talks, hands-on tutorials, and  demos. The Summit will not only inform about latest developments, but will also help to gather feedback from the community to shape the RIOT future.
