5th get-together of the friendly Operating System for the Internet of Things

An Online Event

Let's meet !

About RIOT

RIOT is the friendly operating system for the Internet of Things. If you cannot run Linux on your device due to constrained hardware, use RIOT! RIOT explicitly implements the idea of an open Internet. It supports all relevant standards and is distributed under open source license. You find more details on www.riot-os.org.


The RIOT community consists of companies, academias, and hobbyist, distributed all around the world. RIOT aims to implement all relevant open standards supporting an Internet of Things that is connected, secure, durable & privacy-friendly.

About the RIOT 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!


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 ad-hoc break-out sessions. The Summit will not only inform about latest developments, but will also help to gather feedback from the community to shape the RIOT future.

Venue

 

This year, due to Covid-19, the RIOT Summit will happen online, via common in-browser tools for video-conferencing and chat. Check out the short walk-through video.

In practice, remote attendance & participation will combine the use of WebEx (for plenary sessions) and Gather.town (for virtual socializing, ad hoc encounters and break-out sessions).

Active audio participants are expected to join with a head-set, from a noise-free environment. Activating your camera is encouraged during the virtual coffee breaks (our f2f ersatz this year!).

Test your setup in advance: you can already testrun our virtual hallway in Gather.Town and please check out setup preliminaries to join WebEx.
