    Smart Cities: Technologies & Trends

    As the IoT landscape rapidly evolves, cities across the country are looking to take advantage of these innovative technologies. This event, hosted in partnership with Forth, will explore the different trends and user demands that are converging to set in motion a movement toward more connected, efficient, and safe cities.

    The conversation will focus on three evolving technology areas - connected mobility, autonomous mobility, and communications - and their impact on urban life. Josh Hartung of PolySync will share his expertise on autonomous mobility. Brad Gleeson of CIVIQ Smartscapes will share the wide array of communications needed across such varied and competing infrastructures. Matt Jones of moovel will also be sharing the stage to provide his wealth of knowledge of connected mobility.

    Join us on May 18th to hear from our curated set of experts, as well as participate in a Q/A session led by moderator, Jeannette Shaw of Forth.

    Stories from the Hardware Startup World w/ Joe Grand (aka Kingpin)

    Join us for our first Hardware Massive Portland event with guest speaker Joe Grand, a legendary hacker, product designer, and the founder of Grand Idea Studio, Inc.

    Formerly known as Kingpin, Joe was a member of the influential hacker group L0pht Heavy Industries. He co-founded @stake, an information security firm later acquired by Symantec, and Chumby Industries, which produced one of the first intentionally open and hackable consumer devices. He was a co-host of Discovery Channel's Prototype This, an engineering entertainment program that followed the real-life build process of a unique prototype each episode, and has been a technical advisor to many hardware startups, including MakerBot and Crowd Supply.

    Never one to follow the status quo, Joe has successfully forged his own path doing what he loves to do - hacking, engineering, and teaching. In this session, Joe will share uncensored stories of his experiences being part of, working for, and advising startups. He'll talk about the importance of finding the right people, focusing on a market, choosing funding, and building a business based on passion, not fueled by a quest for fame or riches.


    • Food & Drink are sponsored by Crowd Supply, the crowdfunding platform for hardware startups.

    • Venue is sponsored by JLR Tech Incubator. Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) operates the Open Software Technology Center (OSTC), a unique state-of-the-art facility in Portland that focuses on In-Vehicle Infotainment.

    Art McGee:
    Art will do a brief talk/demo about Tizen Web Apps, the build & structure of the AGL App Suite, building an image, and generally using the Tizen API.

    William Hoang:
    What happens when your Android/iOS mobile device does not have a network connection? That device will have no content, no experience and the amazing application that you spent so much effort to build just simply will not work. This talk would be around the implementation story of creating offline and online applications on Android Mobile. The journey begins with NoSQL database modeling and what we can do with a NoSQL technology for mobile. The session will go through how to create data object model relations, design for performance in difficult areas with no signal, and how to develop a local Android/iOS NoSQL datebase that syncs to the cloud.
