Session Abstracts

19:00 - IoT Workshop with Tim Graves

This is a workshop which provides attendees an opportunity to get hands-on experience with the IoTs. No prior experience in electronic hardware is required. Just get ready to have fun!

Demo Talking Points

We start the workshop by preparing the environment to work with the electronic dev board – you’ll be given all the parts to make this work. Part of the preparation involves using an Arduino IDE for writing and uploading code to the dev board.

Once the environment is set up, we start some experiments. First we’ll do a Blink test which is like the “HelloWorld” program when you are learning a new language. Next, we’ll play a tune which demonstrates how an IoT device NodeMCU interacts with services on the Internet. Then we’ll move on to sending a message to the Oracle IoT Cloud Service.

After you've completed the workshop, you walk away with the IoT kit, basic IoT knowledge and a functional hardware programming environment. With this as a beginning, the attendee can continue exploring journey of the IoT world.

About Tim

Tim gained a BSc Honours degree in 1985 from London University in Computer Science and in 2006 graduated from a MSc in Software Engineering at the Open University.

He started working for the UK government in 1985 researching airborne AI in the Royal Aircraft Establishment and in 1989 joined Sun Microsystems in the government sales team specialising in formal security products (Trusted Solaris). In 1998 he joined the international Sun Federal team specialising in distributed self discovering solutions using the Sun Jini technology as well as security technologies. In 2000 Tim joined the Solaris marketing team looking after security and storage, he was the product manager responsible for UFS, ZFS, NFS amongst other things. In 2006 he moved into the storage team and was the requirements manager for the ZFS Storage array and the S7000 disk array.

When Oracle acquired Sun in 2010 Tim returned to a more customer facing role and joined the Communications global business unit specialising in storage and later became an expert in event driven software, before joining the ISV team in 2012 as an IoT specialist. Whilst in that team Tim designed and built the first IOT stack within Oracle which was shown driving solutions at Embedded World, Oracle Open World and Mobile World Congress.

In 2017 Tim joined the cloud pursuit team within Oracle EMEA where he now works on architecting cloud native solutions, including of course using the Oracle IoT cloud service to bring data into the environment enabling the creation of digital replicas of physical devices.

When he's not working on projects or travelling for business Tim is a keen skier, a science fiction and Discworld fan and an enthusiastic (though not professional standard) cook.
