OSIOT is a Silicon Valley based organization with the single focus to develop and promote royalty-free, open source standards for the emerging Internet of Things. By bringing together industry, the public sector, academics and members of the open source software development community, OSIOT is ensuring that its output serves the needs of many.

Our goal is to create the means for fluid interoperability across disparate environments, each with its own unique variety of needs, services and scenarios. We are building the Rosetta Stone for the Internet of Things.

OSIOT meetup #8: IoT Projects, Interoperability, and Community

The 8th OSIOT meetup was organized on August 6th from 6:30 to 9:30 at Hacker Dojo in Mountain View. In this meetup, we had a couple of project updates and presentations, as well as great discussions on Internet of Things technologies and its future.


  • Project presentation on the Internet of Farming: Backyard Aquaculture by Rik Kretzinger.

  • Update from the Interoperability Project and July 27th OSIOT Hackathon.


First OSIOT Internet of Things Hackathon

We will host an all-day Internet of Things hackathon on July 27th at Hacker Dojo in Mountain View. The goal of OSIOT hackathons is to develop an interoperable ecosystem of connected sensors and objects. At this first hachathon, we will work on the core Smart Object API and IoT Tolkit software, the Semantic Repository of Things, and some initial use cases including a connected laundromat and a connected weather sensor. All are welcome to join and learn and participate.

Event Models for RESTful APIs

Adding event-driven processing to REST APIs is an important concept for the emerging Internet of Things. REST APIs provide for high level system interoperability and software usability, while event driven processing is needed for autonomic capability and efficiency.
