myDevices, the Internet of Things (IoT) solutions company that “simplifies the connected world,” announced that it will sponsor Startup Weekend Ventura County, March 11-13, 2016. The County of Ventura is working with the Camarillo Chamber of Commerce and organizations from across the county to give entrepreneurs tools they need to start businesses in the area.
“The County is working on proof of concept projects using the Internet of Things to increase service and efficiency, so we’re believers,” said County Executive Officer Michael Powers. “Our county is known for agriculture and high-quality healthcare and we see the Startup Weekend as a natural extension of what we are trying to accomplish in County government. This effort will help to establish a collaborative relationship between the private and public sectors, and that can only be good for Ventura County.”
This 54-hour event will include local programmers, system architects, application engineers, medical professionals and agriculture experts and will address healthcare and agricultural needs with innovative Internet of Things solutions. In addition to myDevices’ technological and financial sponsorship, Kevin Bromber, CEO of myDevices, will serve as a mentor to participants.
“I am excited to collaborate with participants and bring their IoT projects to life,” said Bromber. “Our goal is to accelerate time-to-market for developers who invest their energy and creativity in IoT projects. We have developed Cayenne, the world’s first drag-and-drop IoT project builder, and look forward to seeing how this out-of-the-box solution will allow attendees to build IoT projects in hours instead of months.”
This news comes on the heels of Cayenne picking up the 2016 Best Internet of Things Edge Gateway Solution award in the Battle of the Platforms, at the IoT Evolution Expo in January. The Cayenne solution has revolutionary capabilities: automatic device and sensor discovery; drag-and-drop widgets that let developers easily visualize real-time and historical data online or from a mobile app; triggers that allow one sensor, motor or actuator to invoke an action on another device; threshold alerts that send emails or SMS messages based on customizable criteria; and the ability to schedule specific days and times when lights, motors, valves and actuators turn on and turn off.
Organized by Dignity Health St. John’s Hospitals and Camarillo Chamber of Commerce, Startup Weekend Ventura County will be held at Rancho Campana High School in Camarillo, California on March 11-13. Join us to learn about the advantages of this powerful IoT platform at our Cayenne – myDevices boot camp starting at 5:00 pm, March 7th, 2015 at the CLU Westlake Entrepreneurship Center.
