Johan Stokking
Tech Lead The Things Network - CTO The Things Industries

Johan will talk about his experiences of developing The Things Network as a scalable, multi-region deployment. He’ll share his vision on the future of LoRaWAN, and provides details on setting up your own dedicated LoRaWAN network with peering capabilities for reliable, secure and large-scale IoT rollouts.

Johan Stokking is tech lead of The Things Network and CTO of The Things Industries. Johan started The Things Network in the summer of 2015, together with Wienke Giezeman. Within three years, the open network spread to 90 countries, covering over 700 cities globally.

Apart from his work on The Things Network and The Things Industries, Johan is a member of the LoRa Alliance technical committee and works on the specifications of LoRaWAN peering and Firmware Updates Over The Air.

Luca Cipriani
CIO Arduino

Arduino IoT Cloud will allow users to manage their LoRaWan Gateways, Sensors and Nodes from one single web interface. We will explore the vision to have a simple and professional IoT tool to manage every device connected to the network.

Luca Cipriani is a Linux user since 2004 I started exploring the DevOps methodology in 2012. After some years of extreme automation in large scale applications I started working with Arduino, the UX culture completely changed my IT view, I fall in love with Arduino and the IoT world.

Olga Willner
Deutsche Bahn

Olga Wilnner showcases how Deutsche Bahn (DB) intends to use LoRaWAN for intelligent operations. Beyond remote-monitoring its assets (e. g. station clocks) with the transmission technology, Deutsche Bahn currently conducts trials to determine how LoRaWAN can support people-counting at train stations. DB will also test a LoRa-based sensor for snow and ice-detection on train platforms this winter.

Dr. Olga Willner is project lead for IoT & Data Analytics at the division of Deutsche Bahn in charge of train stations. Previously, she worked as a researcher at both ETH Zurich and MIT. The experiences she gained in that role, she now uses to explore and test innovative IoT technologies in train stations.

Online LoRaWAN developer course included

We want you to get the most out of the two days in Amsterdam. Spending time on the LoRaWAN basics would be a waste. That is why we offer every participant free access to an online LoRaWAN course from the moment you purchase your ticket, till March 2019.

 

The LoRaWAN course is a 10-module online course which covers all the fundamentals around the technology. The course includes in-depth lectures, podcasts, tutorials and articles about Radio Modulation, LoRaWAN Security, Geolocation, Large Scale deployments and many more. Read more about the LoRaWAN Academy.

Student? Volunteer!

Yes we know, tech conferences are expensive. As we believe it is important to have students learning about LoRaWAN, we would like to invite you to join The Things Conference free of charge.

 

By joining in as a volunteer, we will ask you to help out for a few hours per day. For the remaining of the time, you are free to attend keynotes and workshops! Also, you’ll receive access to the LoRaWAN Academy.

 

Excited? Sign up now.
